It is absolutely a beautiful town. Has a turquoise sea which is die for and I am pretty sure it is a heaven for scuba divers as well cause the town is literally on rocks and caves. One cave has already been turned to an...More

Leave the Grotte di Castellana behind and come to Polignano a Mare instead. It's a bright and beautiful little shore town. Park on the outskirts and walk in. You'll find nice shops and eateries.

Stayed in Polignano a mare and visited the town a handful of times. Plenty of old shops and scenic views of the coastal caves and enough cafes for a coffee an hour. Beautiful place.

What a lovely laid back Old Town this is (if you ignore the modern concrete town nearby!) A magical place full of tiny family run shops and restaurants and one of the loveliest cliff fringed beaches I have ever seen. A friendly, welcoming, relaxed place!

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.
