Deciding to go to a Lido in September in this area is a daunting task, we tried several until we came upon this place. Parking is not for the faint hearted due to the exuberant parking attendants, but once you leave your vehicle and get in, calm reigns, well at least in September. The sight of so many beach umbrellas is a little disheartening at first, but we were quite happy with the fourth row, on our own, away from the hustle bustle of the families. The beach was clean, easy access to the water and 3 lifeguards on duty. We also had lunch here, a wonderful dish of prawns was brought to us, with great special effects (no spoilers here) by a very cheery waiter, who on hearing me speaking English gave a brave attempt to make some chit chat. I would definitely go here again, although maybe not in August as if all those umbrellas are family full, I fear it would be a totally different story.

We gave up trying to find info on how to get to this beach so in the end we walked there. About 2 miles from Bari central. It cost us €25 euros for entry, 2 excellent sun beds and a large umbrella about 15 metres from the water. The restaurant is a bit basic, but reasonably priced, reasonable food. The staff are good. After a bit of research it seems that there are at least 4 buses (2,22,27&53) which run from the city to the beach at a charge of €1.50 each way. The second time we went there it was very busy and we were told there were no umbrellas available, only to find that there were loads free when we went onto the beach. The sea is warm and child friendly, the restaurant is good value, it’s a bit of a wacky place but all in all well worth a visit

The beach is dirty , glasses everywhere , but there is an entry fee . But you have to pay for showers and for leg wash also. We went to eat in the restaurant , it was horrible, the menu includes only fish which would be fine cuz we love it, but they don’t speak English and the menu also does not say which food is raw, so of course I got raw without knowing it . We ordered pizza too 😂😂😂 approximately the dough is 0.1 mm thin, for real . So if you choose to come here , good luck . And the traffic is the worst in the world .

We were wary of coming here having read some of the poor reviews, but were pleasantly surprised when we did come. We paid €20 for two very comfortable large sun loungers plus a big umbrella. This compares well with what we have paid in other countries. The lido is kept very clean and the toilets were spotless. There is a charge of 50cent for the showers and I do think this is a bit mean when you have already paid for entry/sun loungers. We had a sandwich and cold drink in the cafe. Sandwich was very nice and good value (€2.50) and the drink at €3 was actually cheaper than in the cafe at the public beach.

We paid for sunshades and beds, they placed us in the back, 100meters from the sea, crowded, among noisy people, in vain we pointed out that dozens of places were empty (and remained empty) near the seaside the whole day.
