Torre Lapillo beach

The Torre Lapillo beach is located within the municipality of Porto Cesareo, in the province of Lecce, Puglia, in the northern end of Salento and on the Ionian coast. The town takes its name from the ancient Tower of San Tommaso, which dominates with its 17 meters high. It is a beautiful beach, long and wide, with high attendance, which has nothing to envy to the beautiful exotic beaches. The beach has the shape of an arch and extends from Torre di San Tommaso to Torre Chianca, is composed of fine white sand with cliffs, low dunes and crystal clear water, and multicolored shades ranging from turquoise to emerald green, shallow water and sandy that slopes gently, thus making it suitable for families with children . Behind the beach there is a luxuriant Mediterranean scrub where the junipers stand out with their unmistakable scent. For the beauty of the seabed and the presence of the coral reef, this beach is perfect for lovers of diving and snorkeling . The beach of Torre Lapillo is made up of stretches of free beach that alternate with stretches that host bathing establishments, so there is no lack of all the services available to bathers.

  1. Review of Gian Gian 3.7/5 IT, 18 July 2019

    Spiaggia visitata 1’ settimana di Luglio 2019
    Spiaggia bella e pulita , bel mare di colore verde turchese. E’ molto frequentata, da evitare sabato e domenica. Attenzione ai divieti di sosta; conviene parcheggiare nelle stradine a “monte” della strada litoranea che và a Porto Cesario.

  2. Review of Melissa83 Melissa83 2.7/5 IT, 25 June 2019

    Il mare è bello e anche la sabbia, ma il grosso problema sta che è la spiaggia più frequentata nella zona. Ci siamo stati e non c’era neanche spazio dove passare a Giugno… Molto frequentata soprattutto dalla gente del luogo.
