This beach is one of the reasons Polignano a Mare is such a fantastic place. It's located between 2 cliffs on which the town is built and the view from either side (and also from the beach itself) is fantastic. Not sure how it is...More

We visited in October and I’d advise not to go earlier or it might be too crowded. It was a bit smaller than we expected from the photo’s, but still very nice. The water was as clear as expected and still warm enough to go...More

Astonishing cove. Sitting on the beach I think it results more beautiful than it seems from the bridge view. A place of a timeless beauty. Really fascinating.

This beach is stunning. It is great for a short visit and/or a walk on the rocks. It is also nice to swim in if the water is calm. Be prepared for rocks, and uncomfortable sitting. If you know what to expect, this is a...More

Small, rocky but very lovely beach, hidden among rocks. From the cliff, great views of the sea and the town as well as crystal clear water whose blue merges with the blue of the sky

This is a stunning place to visit. It is a hidden gem in the middle of a historical town. There are caves all around if you like to go adventuring.
