One of the loveliest beaches in Europe. White sand and crystal clear water. The water is perfect for kids or less confident swimmers as it stays shallow for as far as you can walk. Not many decent places to eat unless you venture in land...More

Great beach and crystal clear waters. Even better in September when far from crowds and not an issue to find a comfy space for couple of chairs and umbrella.

Was our first beach on salento and I was told by my friend it would be the best one. I disagree. Went to punta suina and torre lapillo - both were far superior.

I had read lots of reviews, here and elsewhere about how spectacular Punta Prosciutto is. So we were pretty disappointed when we drove one hour from our accommodation in Ceglie Messapica to find what ressembled an overcrowded junk shop on the beach. Sure, the water...More

This beach is really nice, with white thin sand and a wonderful sea water that resembles the best caribbean beaches. It is a bit narrow so it quickly becomes packed but well deserves a stop.

Clean, shallow enough, white sandy beach, just perfect. No need to go anywhere else (we went to all major beaches of Salento).
