Levanto has some of Italian biggest lefts. Levanto's big bay offers several peaks and is partly protected on the south side. It takes a big S/W swell to make it pump. Holds up to 8-10 ft especially in the middle of the bay where big left tubes and nice rights make it worth the drive from the Versilia area. Seldom crowded, clean water.
The best months are March to May or September to November when the waves are more regular and the water is still warm.
