Sauvage and beautiful, bring good hard sole sandals

Ah the beauty of Salento. Loved it. Be prepared with good sandals or waking shoes. Flip flops will be rather dangerous and you don't want anything to spoil the fun.

A pleasant walk to a pleasant beach. Rocky lagoon with a beautiful scenery. Just leave your car at the road and walk down the path through the woods. It is wild so bring water and whatever you nee with you. We went there in October so water was cold and for some reason colder than at the other beaches we... More

Depending from where you park your car , it might take a super pleasant 30 minutes walk amid a maritime pines wood that is leading you directly to a rocky and unspoilt bay of wild beauty . You can smell all mediterranean herbs mixed with the sea , and the natural swimming pool you will find on your arrival is... More

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.
