Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Take a dip in emerald green water along the Adriatic Coast at Channel Ciolo, a rugged beach near Santa Maria di Leuca. This gorgeous piece of nature and coastline dazzles with its clear water and large limestone rocks. Walk down to the picturesque cove and go for a swim or sunbathe along the shore. Note that you'll need to bring your own towel, and expect crowds during peak season.
