Puglia has nearly 900km of coastline so there are plenty of beaches to choose from for your holiday here
The beaches at Ostuni and Torre Canne are about 30 minutes’ drive away from the villas. There are public beaches which are free to access and some have cafes and restaurants backing onto them, and also miles of ‘lidos’ – managed areas of beach where, for a small entrance fee, you get covered parking, loos and showers, bars and restaurants, umbrellas and sunbeds for hire, and lifeguards. Pilone, Lido Bizzaro, Lido Bosco Verde and Viar are all excellent beaches.
There’s also a nature reserve at Torre Guaceto which has a long sandy beach and some great shallows which are perfect for small children to play in and there’s a little train that takes you from the car park to the beach. Between June and September you can take part in guided snorkelling trips on Thursdays and Saturdays.
