Full description

The settingsun. Lu mare dello Ionio. Lu ientu that caresses your face. Here is a tour of the coast in perfect Salento style!

Sailing from Torre Vado in an inflatable boat, you can admire numerous coves from the water and then be fascinated by iconic caves, each with its own history. Get ready to discover the origin of the name of the Grotta dei Giganti and the Grotta del Bambino.

Then dive into the clear waters as the sun dips into the horizon. It will be a unique experience: aperitif included!

What we will do

The rendezvous is in Torre Vado, 20 minutes before the time indicated in the booking.

Welcomed on board by the skipper, we will immediately set sail on our adventure to discover the caves that line this fascinating stretch of the Salento coastline.

We will discover the Grotta della Stalla, an ancient shelter for fishermen, and the Grotta dei Giganti, whose name derives from the discovery of the bones of a prehistoric elephant. Continuing our navigation and illuminated by the light of the setting sun, we will then stop at the Grotta delle Tre Porte, which houses the Grotta Titti and the Grotta del Bambino.

Continuing on through evocative coves, where we will dive into clear and beautifully coloured waters, we will enjoy an aperitif on board with typical Salento delicacies, prosecco, lemon tea and water. All framed by the spectacle of the sunset.

We will then reach the Grotta del Fiume, the bed of an ancient watercourse of karstic origin, before heading towards Punta Ristola, the heel of Italy. This last stop will mark the end of the trip, and we will return to the port after a three-hour tour.
