We have been there in June and it was just perfect: not too many people, calm and transparent waters and a nice short walk to reach the seaside. Try to go early in the morning during the busiest months.

This is one of the great hidden treasures in Italy's south. If there were no beach here, the hiking would be enough to fill a day with breath-taking view. But there is a beach - one of the most beautiful in Apulia! There are several trails leading down to the beach, but my favorite is the one with the trail... More

This us a rocky wild beach attached which you get to going through a protected forest. The beauty is undeniable and so is the quality, cleanliness of the Chrystal clear water is undeniable. However if you're going with small children remember that it's a little walk from the road. You also need to get some snacks and water as there... More

the park surrounding the beach was and still is amazing but nowadays in summertime it is really overcrowded. Also, the water is fresh, which means much more cold than other places.

Simply one of the best place I have ever seen in my life! Wood, sea, great view... And for the swimming lovers, very clean water.

Porto Selvaggio is a stunning nature reserve with stone beaches on the Ionian Sea. Having spent many years with the Dalmatian coast as my weekend get-away, my standards for beautiful coasts are rather high, and I was thrilled that not only does Porto Selvaggio have the pines, the cliffs, and the water, but also the scenic towers above you.

No lidos, wait service or lounge chairs here, just pine scented air and turquoise waters, sun and relaxation, this place is like it used to be. You might want to consider bringing water shoes, though, as it can be a bit rocky!

You better believe the reviews when they say it's a wild beach. It is beautiful and it is wild. You have to park your car on the road and walk about 1 km down to the beach through what seemed like a pine wood. Once you reach, it's rocky and, when we were there, the sea was stormy so the... More

Right in the middle of Porto Selvaggio natural park and wildlife reserve, this beach is one of the best in Italy and this year got again the 5 sails of Legambiente green association. If you decide to visit it please bring with you water and sandwiches because there is not bars or services it is only 100% nature.
