Views from my favorite rock

Ma' Passu, one of the most photographed rocks in the Cinque Terre, also has some of the most incredible, crystal blue water.  During the season, the beach is framed by colorful sunbeds and beach umbrellas, but now, in the winding down days of summer, the beach is empty and the water like glass.

Sung about in dialect songs reserved for festivals, Ma' Passu is Monterossino for "the ocean passes through", as over time, the sea wore down the rock and the water runs through it.
