Town in the province of La Spezia, district of the municipality of Ameglia, Fiumaretta is located on the left bank of the river Magra just before Bocca di Magra. Its territory is included in the Regional Natural Park of Monte Marcello Magra and it features superb natural landscapes and an antique culture. It is a charming seaside resort characterized by fine sandy beaches, crystal water, the simultaneous presence of river and sea, and from a particular single exposure to winds. The ventilation is constant, the tide is low and the promontory of Caprione ensures protection from sea currents. This mixture of geographic and natural features is a major advantage for sport fans. Sailing and windsurfing are ideal, canoeists can range their excursions from the mouth of the river to the small coves between Punta Corvo and Punta Bianca to discover hidden and unexplored areas.
The origin of the town is relatively recent, the village was built in 1855 after the reclaim of the marshlands near the stream. In past centuries the area was the port city of Luni, that disappeared by the gradual silting of the grounds. The Urban structure was set in a very rational which is still visible in the oldest part of the center.
