Excursions and nature

The Regional Park “Punta Pizzo and Island of S. Andrew” in Gallipoli is a real wellness oasis to live in its entirety. The island is the guardian of the city, with its lighthouse built in 1866 that guarantees visibility and security for the ships passing.

At few kilometres North of Gallipoli you’ll find the Regional Park “Porto Selvaggio and the Swamp of the Captain”. Take a deep breath while walking through the pine-wood and enjoy of the wild landscape around you; get dressed with comfortable trainers and don’t bring too many things. At the end of this excursion through the wood, a special award will suddenly await you: the beautiful bay, where bathing and being in the sun.

The clear waters of the Ionian Sea and the warm temperature from April offer a pleasant excursion by boat. You can taste on board the famous “friselline” with tomatoes and “taraddri” as aperitif. These guided tours give you a relaxing moment together with the charm of the caves along our coast, from Torre Palito Santa Maria di Leuca, to go up then along the Adriatic coast until Castro,Santa Cesarea Terme and Otranto. Let yourself involve into the myth and the history, swimming in the surprising sandy waters of the “Caves of the Rivers” or relaxing in the sulphurous thermal waters in Santa CesareaTerme.

Don’t miss to visit at least one of many Towers located along all the coast of this peninsula: “Torre Lapillo” in Porto Cesareo, “Torre dell’alto” in Porto Selvaggio, “Torre Pali” in Salve and lots of various and different others.
