There was a big clean up two years ago now, I think, and it isn’t still much better than before. There is a problem with plastics still though and those awful cigarette ends which many bury in the sand. It’s a lovely beach and a...More

This beach is a great one on the east coast of Salento. Its a little hidden, but just drive to the end of the parking lot and walk down the (prohibited?) staircase into the bay. I guess it can get very crowded in July/August, but...More

This was my favorite beach along the Adriatic. It's absolutely stunning and a true hidden gem - we were probably the only people there who weren't italian! Would return in a heartbeat.

Glad to see that the area is still quite clean on the beach. Sadly around the car park there is rubbish left. The water is clear and there are so many fish to see even in the shallows.

Wonderful place! Surrounded by a yellow stone, this place is unique! No suitable for children very young as the access is unsafe and unprotected. The sea was wonderful even if some boats were too closed to the coast the swimming was unforgivable.

The difference this year is that there has been a big effort to clean up the beach - and what a difference - there is no litter anywhere. There are still cigarette ends here and there (non- degradable) but it is clear that all the...More

A very nice beach with clear water. The water is cool and deep so only for those who can swim. There's no sand so you have to sit on a rock but with some soft matrass or sth like that - it's perfect. Really enjoyed...More
