swam here for the day - 21 euros for parasol and two loungers. great pizza for lunch in site. amazing rocks to swim amongst with easy access via steps and pontoons to dive off. book beforehand to get the best pitches! also a small kids play area. well worth doing one day at least!

Booked by the hotel meant we had a sea side table. Lovely staff and good food. Service a little slow between courses but ok. Nice wines and reasonable cost.

Very interesting swimming area with huge boulders leading directly into deep water swimming. Good for the entire family...provided you can swim. The Water is clean and cool. The location offers umbrellas and beach lounges for a reasonable price. There is also a restaurant that specializes in pizzas, but serves a little of everything. The pizza was fabulous. Would d finitely... More

If you like seeing new things you will love this one. Its just a five minute drive south of the old town.

In June the beach was just being reopened so the spot was very quiet. The surroundings are really stunning with these arches of stone and an easy access to the water. We had a wonderful day enjoying the Mediterranean and just enjoying "farniente"...

We were very lucky to find this great beach with clear clean water. Best to buy rubber shoes as rocks and platforms are slippery.

This was my favorite beach during a week vacation across Salento (southern Puglia) The location is fantastic, the water beautiful, price for umbrella and chairs reasonable. There's a restaraunt on top where we had a good meal. One glitch, in the afternoon the wind changed and started blowing from the south (scirocco); this event seemed to have caused a certain... More

Thrid time around, and we could not visit Puglia without our visit to this Lido. Still as lovely and vintage as before. The bathing experience is great. The restaurant has had a bit of a makeover and looks a bit classier, but the Pizzas are still the best we've eaten, the wine list is great and the service with a... More

Came here for an afternoon swim. Beautifully located Lido with a very 1920's feel to it. Not a sandy beach but the rocky outcrops so typical of this side of Puglia. Pizzas recommended and even if the restaurant looks like a simple beach bar, have to say the enormous Pizzas packed a punch of taste and thin crust that qualifies... More
