Full description

Experience the sunset over the sea in the beautiful Salento on a3-hour boat trip.

A local skipper will take you to discover the coast of Santa Maria di Leuca and its extraordinary natural caves on the Ionian and Adriatic sides. You will admire the suggestive Grotta Cazzafri, Grotta Terradico and Grotta del Diavolo and enjoy a dip and a swim in crystal-clear waters.

The tour also includes an aperitif on the boat with prosecco, soft drinks and taralli.

What we will do

We will meet at the marina in Santa Maria di Leuca (LE), where the skipper will be waiting for us and will accompany us on the excursion. We will board an 8-metre boat, approved for 10 people and equipped with every comfort.

Once everyone is on board, we will set off on our tour along Punta Meliso. We will thus have the chance to admire the beauties of Santa Maria di Leuca from the boat: the Basilica Santa Maria de Finibus Terrae, the Leuca Lighthouse, and the Monumental Staircase.

We will then encounter Grotta Cazzafri, followed by Grotta Terradico, Grotta delle Verduselle, Grotta del Soffio and Grotta della Vora. These are the caves that make the coastal stretch of the Adriatic side unique.

The boat will then head towards the Ionian side. We will reach Punta Ristola where there is Grotta Porcinara, a man-made opening in the rock dedicated to the worship of deities. We will then head towards Grotta del Diavolo, Grotta del Fiume, Grotta delle Tre Porte, Caverna dei Giganti and Grotta della Stalla.

We will have the opportunity to admire the coast at sunset as the sun sets on the horizon, a moment that makes the excursion even more magical and unforgettable. During the excursion, we will have the opportunity to dive into the sea for a refreshing swim or snorkelling.

The tour also includes an aperitif on the boat with taralli and prosecco or carbonated soft drinks (orange and coke). The tour will last about three hours.
