Polignano

Polignano a Mare is a pretty seaside town on the Puglia adriatic coast that attracts many visitors every year for its high rocky coast and beautiful caves. The best known and most photographed places are Lama Monachile, the only beach in Polignano, and the sea caves. All these places can be explored by kayak along the high rocky coast on which Polignano stands.

Porto Selvaggio

Salento is certainly one of the most popular holiday destinations in Italy. Here you can find beautiful pristine beaches, bathed by the crystal clear sea of Puglia. One of the most famous and unmissable beaches during a trip to Salento is Porto Selvaggio. It is a Natural Park, a magical place, surrounded by nature, which offers visitors one of the most evocative landscapes of the entire Salento coast.

Leuca

The beauty of its coast and the blue of the sea make Leuca one of the most visited and loved places in all of Salento. The coastline is predominantly high and jagged, with rocks falling sheer into the sea. From the kayak you can visit a breathtaking coastal landscape dotted with endless caves, from the largest to the smallest.
