The crystalline sea of Apulia
Between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas
The trullara 'La Reginetta' is located in a strategic place for those who love the sea: both the sandy beaches of the Adriatic Sea and the rocky coasts of the Ionian Sea are easy to reach. The Itria Valley is full of wild coastal nature reserves to be discovered, in full respect of nature; for those who want to relax and enjoy the splendid sea that laps the Apulian coast, where you can find open beaches and beach resorts that offer all the services to make your day at the sea as regenerating as possible.
The Torre Guaceto reserve, just a short distance from Brindisi and Ostuni, is a peaceful destination for people and animals: the protected area consists of both the marine environment, around 2200 hectares, and the land area, covering 1100 hectares. The marine environment of Torre Guaceto is home to numerous plant and animal species, against the backdrop of the crystal-clear sea of the Apulian Adriatic to be discovered by snorkelling. The land area is a green lung for cycling or bird watching. These activities in contact with nature make it possible to fully enjoy a day at Torre Guaceto, for unforgettable experiences in this wonderful nature reserve in Apulia.
DUNE COSTIERE PARK
This Regional Nature Park in northern Salento, in the municipalities of Ostuni and Fasano in the province of Brindisi, extends from Torre Canne to Torre San Leonardo. Man and nature coexist in harmony in the park, creating a unique atmosphere: as you move from the sea inland, you will come across fossil dunes, ancient olive groves and the "lame" (fossil rivers), as well as fish farms, oil mills, farms and rugged villages. The Dune Costiere Park can be visited in its entirety, with absolute respect for nature and those who work to protect it.
This particular stretch of Apulian coastline, Costa Merlata, just a short distance from Ostuni and Carovigno, takes its name from its particular conformation: the rock is interrupted at times to leave room for small sandy inlets. This stretch of coastline is therefore perfect for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts as well as for those who prefer to relax on the comfortable sand and dive into the crystal clear sea of Apulia. The wild and unspoilt nature gives the Costa Merlata a thousand colours, from the white of the rocks to the crystal clear sea and the green of the Mediterranean maquis that protects the coves.
