If buying fish off the board at 6am and fresh figs from the farm is your thing then head to Porto Cesareo! Spent a week in here in July and highly recommend the experience. Excellent boat rental and diving off an amazing shoreline.

This is a really super little coastal resort with good access to the sea and beaches. The town runs along he beachline and the hotels follow that. I stayed at the Isolated lo scoglio and they have access to the sea directly. Overall I wouldn't...More

We decided to change our itinerary a bit to get away from some of the nice but crowded and traffic-filled towns in Puglia to enjoy a coastal drive for a while. I'd remembered reading about Porto Cesareo while researching our trip, so we headed there,...More

Visited during the off season so it was wonderfully peaceful. It was still hot so we were able to sunbathe and go for a swim! Highly recommend checking out if it's not too crowded. However, many restaurants may be closed off season.

Porto Cesareo lies on a coast with blue/turquoise crystal clear waters and sandy beaches. The town has a very nice harbour with fisherman boats. It's a little bit step back in time both for the attitude of the people then for the infrastructures. We visited...More

Its not the type of place you want to stay for a longer visit. Its close to some nice beaches but definitely there are better places in Puglia. Some good places for seafood in town (Lu Cannizzu) and pizza but not much else.

Porto Cesareo is always nice, you can walk, have a drink, make shopping all near the sea. Tipical sea environment. Only bad point is that it's very crowdy, and you will spend a lot of time to find parking. It should be solved this issue,...More
