Beautiful beach of Ionian Salento, characterized by large expanses of sand (for lovers of relaxation) and crystal clear water with blue-green shades, which, together with the seabed, and the water shallow for several meters from the coast, recall tropical destinations

It looks like a pool. Light blu water with soft sand. A section is a bit more wild while the section closer to the parking is more crowded. For family

Clear water, nice people and not that expensive. Try it and you will not be disappointed! Can be romantic or can be perfect for familes. Your kids will love it!! The water is as clear as any place in the carribean or similar places!
