Went a few times, always early as it does tend to fill up, both the private and public areas. Some free parking is also available. Beach is relatively clean with a couple of bars/restaurants on hand. Water is spectacular, very clean, calm and initially very shallow so it does stay warm! Definitely recommend and worth the return trips!

We visited the beach twice and each time enjoyed ourselves. In the area called Le Dune there is a nice snack bar that offers decent food at a good price. Only downside is the continual parade of beach traders selling anything from bags to bows and arrows. Great weather and fantastic clear water. Sandy beach.

Was our first beach on salento and I was told by my friend it would be the best one. I disagree. Went to punta suina and torre lapillo - both were far superior.

In a covid-era it's rather sad to see someone is still taking adavantafe of it. Family of 4 have to take 2 umbrellas (50 euro!) Only to be jammed among others.
The Punta Prosciutto Beach is jammed between free beaches and its hard to distinguish it from the rest.
In a lightly windy day the clear water disappears under small waves, bringing clusters of dirty.
The distance from the district beach umbrella to the sea is extremely small so passer-by are to be considered passers-inside.
Nothing for children, apart of sea water, ugly takeaway and expensive food.
What to say, this is another typical South of Italy missed opportunity for the beaches.
You can't just live with pictures of crystal waters and empty beaches probably taken in May or October.
OVERRATED to put it mildly.

I had read lots of reviews, here and elsewhere about how spectacular Punta Prosciutto is. So we were pretty disappointed when we drove one hour from our accommodation in Ceglie Messapica to find what ressembled an overcrowded junk shop on the beach. Sure, the water was crystal clear and blue but there where absolutely no other redeeming features about the place. Hawkers paraded up and down the sand, selling clothes and bags and bracelets and cold drinks, some of them carrying what appeared to be whole shops on their backs. Others were shouting their wares through megaphone or stopping on people's beach towels to show their products, despite people's protests to be left alone. In my attached photo you'll also see the huge pile of cheap inflatables for sale, positioned right at the entrance to the beach. It was like the carnies had brought sideshow alley onto the sand. I have read many Australians saying similar things before, but having visited many European beaches, it's definitely true that we are very picky about what we consider a 'beautiful beach'. If you appreciate open spaces (I know, it's hard to find in Italy in the summer!), and peace and quiet when you go to the beach, definitely stay away from Punto Prosciutto.

The best sea in Salento. You can't go away if you don't spend a day in this location. There are many organized structures with sunbeds and umbrellas if you need them. But it is better to go early in the morning.

We were recommended this beach by 2 friends and they weren't wrong. Go to Samana beach club for a clean, chilled vibe :)

Great beach and crystal clear waters.
Even better in September when far from crowds and not an issue to find a comfy space for couple of chairs and umbrella.

Water is fantastic, but on a Sunday in August our jaws dropped when we stepped on a beach. There was not an empty spot on the beach. We put our umbrella and chairs right next to the water and had people’s butts parade in front of our noses the entire stay. If you abstract from that, the water is fantastic. and it’s great for little children as it’s shallow for a long while.

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.
