My favorite place in the world! We come here every year in winter, it is still warm if you have a jacket, we bring sandwiches and wine and have a picnic. Beautiful scenery and very romantic.

Best visited during low- to mid-season (as most things), the Natural Reserve of Porto Selvaggio is a wonderful place to stretch your legs, burn off some pasta pounds, and have a leisurely swim. The closest parking is off the litoranea near Masseria Tafuri/Fumarola, but the more adventurous can park below the Torre dell'Alto where the coastal road from Santa Caterina... More

A paradise and heaven on earth, this place is not. It is nice and not too polluted, but there is a campsite there and the best bit of the beach is reserved for happy campers. Swimming off the rocks is not so good and cam be slippery. Throughout our visit we heard the music playing out from campsite entertainment and... More

One of the best places in Salento. The water is super fresh and clear surrounded by pines tree. No need for an umbrella as there is plenty of shadow under the pines. There is a small walk for 1.5 km to reach the water from the road, so I found it more comfortable to walk in tennis shoes other than... More

We have been there in June and it was just perfect: not too many people, calm and transparent waters and a nice short walk to reach the seaside. Try to go early in the morning during the busiest months.

This is one of the great hidden treasures in Italy's south. If there were no beach here, the hiking would be enough to fill a day with breath-taking view. But there is a beach - one of the most beautiful in Apulia! There are several trails leading down to the beach, but my favorite is the one with the trail... More

This us a rocky wild beach attached which you get to going through a protected forest. The beauty is undeniable and so is the quality, cleanliness of the Chrystal clear water is undeniable. However if you're going with small children remember that it's a little walk from the road. You also need to get some snacks and water as there... More
