Monterosso al Mare is a town in the province of La Spezia, part of the region of Liguria (northern Italy). It is one of the five villages in Cinque Terre.
The town is located at the center of a small natural gulf and is divided into two parts: the old and the new. The two areas are divided by a single tunnel that caters to pedestrians and the very few cars in the town.
The beach at Monterosso runs along most of the coast line and is well used by tourists and locals. The beach is the only extensive sand beach in the Cinque Terre. Monterosso is a small town overrun by tourists in the summer.
