The Guardian recently posted an article in their newspaper about the lesser known, but spectacular beaches from all over the world, and Torre Lapillo Bay, Puglia, made their Top 10 List!
This is what they had to say:
In Salento, southern Puglia, the Porto Cesareo area enjoys a coast of white sand and shimmering turquoise waters. Known as the Maldives of Italy, there are lots of beautiful beaches to choose from but Torre Lapillo Bay is a particularly eye-catching spot where you’ll also find the 16th-century Tower of St Thomas. The town of Porto Cesareo, which runs alongside a lagoon, makes a good holiday base with its wide range of hotels, […] and cool beachside houses.
So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bikini (or trunks) and come and check out the crystal clear turquoise waters of Southern Puglia for yourself!
