With a backdrop of sandy dunes, wetlands and marshes inhabited by a range of wildlife including amphibians and birds, Torre Guaceto is a wonderful area to walk, explore and experience nature. There is even a marine reserve for turtles. Punta Penna Grossa -PPG- within the reserve is one of the most popular family beaches in the Valle d’Itria. PPG is a 20-minute drive from Ostuni and Brindisi. There’s a 5-minute walk to the beach from the main car park. Parking arrangements change from mid-late July until early September when you are directed to the northern car park. This has a €5 flat fee including the trolley bus that loops from the car park to the beach and back again (a 4-minute journey each way). You can wait from 10-20 minutes to get on depending on the queues. But it’s worth it. Another 50-minute walk beyond the torre will take you to one of Puglia’s best known naturist beaches. During the summer season PPG has a private lido with umbrellas and loungers for hire. There is a public bar, public toilets. There are small lockers and charging points for mobiles and tablets. PPG has accessible facilities, including chairs that can be used by those who need assistance to get over the sand and into the sea.

Beautiful area with a beach that locals flock to at weekends. There is a sanctuary for injured turtles where you can get quite close to these magnificent animals. There is an information centre miles from the beach which we gave up trying to get to so we had to make do with the local signage which is a few informative signs but little else. We enjoyed it and the beach and dunes are beautiful but there are too many unmarked trails. We had a car and apart from tourist coaches we saw no public transport.

We went to Torre Guaceto in the middle of August. As expected the beach was busy, like everywhere in this part of the year. The trains from the parkings to the beach are frequent in this period, to manage the higher number of visitors. The water is green/blue and transparent; see is normally calm. There are many fishes that one can see easily snorkelling. Kids and teenagers will enjoy that. They organise visits of the natural reserve which are worthy to discover the area. We visited the We did is with the family and adults and kids, enjoyed. Our guide was Giovanni and he was good. You can see turtles, walk in the wetlands, enjoy small remote beaches. On the beach you may find some stones, plants and branches that are not removed regularly. But this is normal I think because it is a natural reserve. Worth a visit.

The Torre Guaceto's beach is simply fantastic. The water is crystal clear and the beach (sand) is very nice and peaceful. If you are looking for a wonderful beach in the area between Monopoli and Brindisi, this is the place to go!
