Discover Puglia’s most picturesque landscapes with a relaxing boat tour
With as much as 865 km of coastline, Apulia is a true wealth of beauty. The coastline alternates between sandy beaches and rocky, jagged stretches. The Gargano area in northern Apulia is characterized by white cliffs that plunge into the azure sea, creating a striking contrast of colors, complemented by bright green vegetation. Moving down the coast of Salento, you encounter caves and bays with transparent water that bring out the clarity of the seabed. Impossible to resist the urge to take a dive from the boat!
