Full description

Carve out a day at sea on your own boat. The crew on board will organise a tour tailored to your wishes, allowing you to make additional stops on request at places along the coast that catch your eye. And of enchanting places there are many along the Adriatic coast between Monopoli and Polignano a Mare!

You will stop in one of the coves with sheer cliffs for a dip before reaching Polignano a Mare. You will sail admiring the caves that open in the cliffs of the seaside town and reach the lonely Scoglio dell'Eremita, which emerges from the waters of Polignano's south coast.

Not only that, you will discover the wonderful Grotta Palazzese, the inlet of Cala Port'Alga and the beautiful Cala Ponte. Right here you will make another stop to enjoy a tasty aperitif on board with typical Apulian specialities. What are you waiting for?

What we will do

The appointment is at the time selected during the booking process at the port of Monopoli. Here the skipper will be waiting for you and will take you on board the boat, which will be at your complete disposal for the tour.

Once on board, the boat will head towards Polignano a Mare , sailing along the beautiful stretch of Adriatic coastline leading to the famous seaside village. You will admire sheer cliffs,small sandy bays, and Saracen towers overlooking the deep blue sea fading into turquoise and green.

You will reach the famous Scoglio dell'Eremita (Hermit's Rock ), which emerges from the water a few dozen metres off the south coast of Polignano. The islet owes its name to the popular legend that it was inhabited by a hermit.

The boat will then head for the picturesque Cala Port'Alga, with its colourful fishermen's boats, sheer cliffs and water so crystal clear that you could reflect in it. You will make your first swimming stop in one of the bays between Monopoli and Polignano, then stop near the very special Grotta Palazzese with its restaurant suspended over the water.

You will then reach the picturesque Cala Ponte where, in addition to swimming, you will enjoy anaperitif on board with a buffet of typical Apulian specialities, including focaccine, friselle and crudités accompanied by tasty sauces. It will also be possible to customise the itinerary according to your preferences.

The trip lasts a total of 7 hours.
