Porto Cesareo beach
4.0 Green Flag 2019

The beach of Porto Cesareo, in Salento, is one of the most beautiful on the Apulian coast and has been awarded several times with the prestigious Green Flag for beaches suitable for children. The beach is composed of fine white granulometry sand bathed by a wonderful sea with a turquoise color that fades towards the blue as you move away from the shore. The seabed slopes down quite gently and snorkelers can admire many species of flora and fauna that live in the Porto Cesareo Lagoon like the Geodia sponge . Of particular naturalistic value: the sand dunes that preserve all their wild beauty covered by thick Mediterranean vegetation. The beach of Porto Cesareo overlooks the Isola Grande, also known as the Isola dei Conigli. This town boasts ancient origins: from the Romans it was called Portus Sasinae . Torre Cesarea is also characteristic, a sighting tower located between the main beach of the city and the port; built in the 16th century during the period of Turkish invasions.

  1. Review of Sara Montanari Sara Montanari 4.0/5 IT, 15 July 2018

    Il posto è spettacolare. Ovviamente sovraffollato nel weekend. Peccato perché con un po’ di buona educazione e di impegno da parte del Comune si potrebbero pulire le spiagge dalle cose abbandonate e dalla sporcizia. L’inciviltà e la noncuranza regnano in un paradiso!
