Swimming officially forbidden yet no one cares ;-)

Great place; swimming is forbidden and staff inform you about this at the entrance, obviously for liability reasons since absolutely everyone is swimming and jumping into the water.

Expected more of it

Nice area by you have to pay to get in. Grotta was nice but highly overcrowded. Expected more. I think the way to it and the free area (rocca vecchia) is more worth it. Entrance fee grotta 3 euro.

Not to be missed
Aug 2021 • Family
Not to be missed when in Puglia. You pay 3€ per person in order to go in. That includes a brief tour. There are people jumping off the cliff which was fun to watch.

NO JUMPING OR SWIMMING
Jul 2021 • Family
Very very disappointing. Hope you read this review before you go. We went today because we read all this beautiful reviews about jumping from the cliff and having good day. So first of all the car park there is really expensive- 2 hours 4.50€ , for entrance another 3€ per person. The main thing is nobody will tell you you CAN NOT swim there until you pay. I saw looots of people today will beach bags , exited kids for having great. Nothing from that.
It’s beautiful place …. But if you want to have bit of fun, don’t waste your time .

History lesson and diving
Sep 2020 • Friends
I was surprised there was an English tour available! The guide had a great vocabulary and the tour was very informative. After the tour we got to dive in amazing clear water. The grotta (cave) caved and now is basically a hole in this cliff. People can jump off the cliff inside the whole and bathe in the water coming in from the sea. Officially people are not supposed to stand around the hole and dive, hence when you get there they will tell you it is forbidden. Since tourist kept doing it anyway, the direction of the grotta della poesia decided to make it safe by hiring some kind of lifeguards, which will try to not have too many people standing next to the edge of the hole, which is at risk of collapsing.

Set right beside the Rocca Ruins, this was a nice afternoon walk.
We were not inclined to swim but it was enjoyable to watch the teens jump into the grotta.

Amazing place for a swim!
Oct 2019
Discovered this place in October, it wasn't too cold, or too busy, sometimes we had the pool to ourselves, I can imagine in the summer this place will be packed. Definately worth a visit though. The water is deep enough to jump into the pool, it's crystal clear. There is free parking a 5 minute walk from the attraction.

Sep 2019 • Couples
This place was from a dream the rocks were unreal and the water crystal clear. We snuck off to a quiet place for some beers on the rocks after a few jumps. A must do.
Don’t park on the curb. We got a
Ticket. 😱 park in the designated car park 100 metres away.
