This beach is really nice, with white thin sand and a wonderful sea water that resembles the best caribbean beaches. It is a bit narrow so it quickly becomes packed but well deserves a stop.

Clean, shallow enough, white sandy beach, just perfect. No need to go anywhere else (we went to all major beaches of Salento).

Punta Prosciutto has perhaps the best beach in Puglia. Clean water, white sand, and informal beach-shack lunches, with families from Lecce or Bari coming down for the day. But too many people with beach mats or rented sunloungers under an ombrellone make the beach too...More

It's definitely one of the nicest beaches on the west coast of Puglia but they should clean it up...lots of small paper and plastic ruins the view.

An absolutely beautiful beach, there is a reason they call it The Maldives of Italy! The sea is so clear and shallow, and the beach is white sand. The only thing is a lack of decent facilities. And try not to go in August, it's...More

I'm fine from Brazil were we have amazing beaches. This one, has nothing else than a clear water. It's not a wonderful beach and I've seen better places in Italy. Don't waste your time driving there and find more beautiful places around Apulia.
