THE 8 MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACHES IN PUGLIA
Puglia has become a very popular tourist destination in recent years and this is confirmed by thousands of tourists from all over the world who choose this enchanting region for their summer holidays.
Among the naturalistic and cultural beauties of Puglia, the crystal clear sea is the most sought after tourist attraction.
The sea of Puglia is something wonderful that can be partially compared to that of the Maldives; the sand is fine and clear and the sea is a crystalline blue, also very demanded by children. The beaches of Puglia are in fact ideal for those traveling with the family!
Puglia is a very large region and extends vertically dividing itself into two main areas: the Gargano in the north and Salento in the south. In both areas you can admire a still wild nature and a countryside full of centuries-old olive trees and vineyards.
From the Apulian countryside the step is short to get to the sea and in this article we want to show you the most beautiful beaches for a fabulous holiday!
We are in the Gargano Park, north of Puglia. Vignanotica Bay overlooks a rocky wall that falls sheer to the crystal clear sea.
The beach is very extensive and allows you to enjoy the sea 100% walking, swimming and kayaking.
BAIA DELLE ZAGARE
Baia delle Zagare is probably one of the most famous places in Puglia, as its rocky arches immersed in the crystalline sea are now a symbol of the region.
The huge beaches of light sand and the proximity to natural parks allow a real immersion in the green of the forests and in the blue of the sea.
POLIGNANO A MARE
The splendid Polignano a mare is a delightful town with a characteristic historic center overlooking the sea. Polignano a mare is one of the most popular travel destinations in Puglia and the most famous beach is that of Lama Monachile, present on every postcard of the city.
The entire area is full of beaches surrounded by accommodation facilities, clubs and restaurants where you can spend a holiday full of fun and relaxation.
We now go down further south, in Salento, a tourist destination par excellence and the most coveted. Both the Adriatic and Ionian coasts offer incredible scenery and crystal clear waters.
Salento is also famous for fun and offers many clubs and restaurants to enjoy your holiday with joy, without neglecting the cultural and food and wine heritage that Puglia can offer.
The first Salento beach that we recommend is certainly Porto Selvaggio, a nature reserve located between Gallipoli and Porto Cesareo. Its path leads directly to the sandy beach.
TORRE DELL’ORSO (Melendugno)
The sandy beach of Torre dell’Orso, almost 1 km long, is dominated by two limestone stacks, called "the two sisters", which are reflected in the transparent waters.
PORTO BADISCO (Otranto)
Porto Badisco is a natural inlet characterized by limestone rocks that embrace the sea, whose seabed is a true paradise for snorkelers.
Pescoluse is located between Ugento and Santa Maria di Leuca and is known as the Maldives of Salento.
The very long 4 km long white beach is characterized by dunes and white lilies and its crystal clear waters and its shallow waters are the ideal destination for families with children in tow.
SALINA DEI MONACI
Salina dei Monaci is a marine reserve a few steps from Manduria, one of the most evocative but less crowded places in Salento to spend a day at the beach in total relaxation.
Salina dei Monaci is surrounded by dunes and rich vegetation that attracts pink flamingos and other bird species that bird watchers will appreciate.

In addition to culture and good food, wild nature and the sea are the protagonists of a holiday dedicated to
