Puglia is well-known in Italy for offering the some of the best beaches and clearest waters on the mainland. With over 750km of coastline, there is no shortage of beaches and each one has its own special charm. On the Adriatic coast, the shoreline alternates between rocky coves and small sandy bays. From the imposing cliffs of Polignano to the gentle sand dunes south of Torre Canne, there is something to suit everyone. Fishing enthusiast may prefer the peace and tranquillity of the rocky coves, while sun worshippers will probably head for the sandy beaches either those furnished with sun loungers and equipped with small beach bars, or those more tranquil inlets where you bring your towel and maybe a picnic to enjoy a relaxing day by the sea away from the crowds.
