Porto Selvaggio, Nardo

4.3
#1 of 144 in Beaches in Puglia
Beach Nature / Park
A forest near the sea gives the nature enthusiast a contrast in environments to explore at Porto Selvaggio. Pine and lemon trees grow in the warm, dry air among the juniper, mastic, myrtle, and gorse plants that give off the recognizable scents of the Mediterranean. The High Tower that was once used as a lookout is now home to the Museum of Marine Biology, which focuses on life in the Ionian Sea. The land also intrigues archaeologists, who study prehistoric settlements near Uluzzo Bay. Nearby, the 17th-century Uluzzo Tower is still partially intact. When you're ready to enjoy the water and sun, the beach's chairs and umbrellas are up for grabs. Using our international travel planner, Nardo attractions like Porto Selvaggio can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We recommend the large parking lots, watch out for the fines at machines let along the way. After a pleasant walk in the woods you will reach the sea, where there is a small beach or numerous reefs. Spectacular sea cold water currents very pleasant!

  • the place from a landscape point of view is really nice. Rocks and Sea blend perfectly. The beach is smallish but the rocks offer useful locations to stay a few hours in the Sun with a pool of water available especially attractive rich in fauna and pleasant for swimming. Obviously attention to time when you visit may be very busy. But nice anyway.
