Via S. Vito, 70044 Polignano a Mare BA, Italy
Very photogenic and relaxing despite the nearby bar’s pounding music. It is very small so plan accordingly if you’re going, it seems to get packed even during off season I do not know if the water is normally calm and pool like, the day I went was windy and the water was swelling in a way only strong swimmers could have fun swimming in the water, so take not and be careful you’re surrounded by big and sharp rocks here.
Busy but not packed on a Wednesday in July. Don’t go expecting a long relaxing day on the beach. We found a spot and then enjoyed jumping off the rock platform and swimming around the cove and enjoying the magnificent surroundings. Rock shoes highly recommended to fully enjoy the ocean.
Beautiful, wonderful rocky beach! I came on a Saturday and was still able to find a spot for my stuff close to the beach. The water was very warm and clear with waves. I enjoyed cliff jumping. Would definitely come again!
I give it a 4 because the views are incredible and hey it’s a cool Italian beach!! It’s a rocky beach. You are much better off wearing flip flops or shoes. Better yet if you have shoes you can wear in the water you won’t regret it. Everyone will envy you. Someone could make a killing selling shoes at this beach but they just sell hats, sunglasses and random jewelry that you see all over at every other stall. You can go off to the left through a cave like area and to a place where you can swim but I didn’t let my 9 year old because it was really wavy and it looked like it would be hard to get out of the water. Someone from the cliff above our head jumped in and startled me. It’s nice to look at this place and take photos from the bridge behind and from the upper right viewing area. Btw that whole area up there is a must see. Great shops and cafes!!!
Fantastic !!! Must see ... We parked car a few streets away and walked 10mins to get to this amazing and beautiful place. The family had a fantastic swim and we all dived off the rocks. Highly recommended for day trip.
