Poliginano e Mare is easy to reach by Trenitalia trains from Bari. Don't visit on a Sunday as the trains do not begin until 10.05am. This means you will be there with a lot of tourists and local holiday makers. Weekdays are the quietest. Polignano...More

Been coming to Puglia for the last 10+ years and while some might argue Polignano a Mare is overhyped, I’d definitely say it is worth a day trip to. It’s very pretty, amazing views out to the Adriatic Sea, lots of little streets to wander,...More

Perfect for diving. Not great beach. Photographs well but too crowded and the worst to walk on. Large rocks to gravel. Slippery and uneven. Lots of waking. Worth going if you also want to see Domenico Motugno statue. If you have lots of free time...More

Hello, surely Italy is the right place. However, the Italian coasts are very varied. you need to find something specific and then ask for the type of beach that it is.
