The coastline of wonders
Miles of a charming coastline and small wonders to discover. Breathtaking colourful beaches and enchanted white villages
MARINA DI LEPORANO
Marina di Leporano, boasts a rocky coastline with sandy coves, lapped by the Ionian sea. Baia di Gandoli is a natural cove, partly public and partly private, where comforts and services merge with the wonderful surrounding landscape. The crystal clear and shallow water meets the sandy and fine sand..
MARINA DI LIZZANO
Overlooking the clear Ionian Sea, which laps the Gulf of Taranto, Marina di Lizzano stretches for 7 kilometres along Salento coastline, in the strip of coast between Marina di Pulsano and Torre Ovo. After the town centre by the sea, as far as Torre Sgarrata, there are kilometres of large beaches with soft sand, lapped by the crystal clear and inviting sea.
The colour of the sand is so clear to give the water Caribbean shades ,particularly on days when the wind from the north blows. The sea beds, mostly sandy and sloping down, are perfect to swim and bathe in tranquillity
An important tourist resort in in the heart of Terra d’Arneo (Arneo Land), well-known for its golden beaches and the wonderful sea and easily reacheable as well. The small village lives according to the rhythm of the sea and is surrounded by the beautiful small port, with the fish market and the characteristic coloured boats.
The seaside town of Gallipoli, whose name means Beautiful City, rests like a mirage on the Ionian coast- The old town, perched on a limestone island, is connected to the new part of the town, on the mainland, by an arched bridge built in the 1900s. The walls, bastions, and towers, which originally defended the town from invaders, today protect it from swells, preserving the charm of days gone by.
Ostuni, the White Town, so called for the whitewashed houses of its historic centre surrounded by Aragonese walls . A magic sight made of alleys and small squares climbing on the side of a hill till the top where The Cathedral dominates the plain of ancient olive trees.
