Spiaggia Porto Selvaggio, Nardo
(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
A forest near the sea gives the nature enthusiast a contrast in environments to explore at Spiaggia 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 Spiaggia Porto Selvaggio can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • To get to the beach of Porto Selvaggio must begin in a 1 km long, steep descent and full of rocks and stones, which can be reached only on foot (walking shoes) at the end of the descent you see this beautiful Rocky Bay enriched with the wonderful crystal blue water and clear ... on the promontory you see the high tower. Me and my friends we lay in one of the stumbling blocks and then did a long and enjoyable bath in these clear waters, was a pleasure to stay underwater, to see what's underneath. It's a crazy cool ... I recommend it to everyone! :)

  • It's a beautiful small Cove with crystal clear water (not the brand) and lined with pine trees. It is relaxing and very friendly to land, diving, dry in the Sun. It is less awful feeling to be sitting in the middle of a giant ashtray. It's not dozens, or hundreds, but thousands of cigarette butts (and capsules of cans) which are stuck around the rocks. Amazing and incomprehensible. Sad, too.

  • A pinewood of about 1 km and then you get this natural port embedded in the rock where the colors Blue and green are mixed up to reflect the green of the pine forest seems to be on an island, then when you get into the water you hear the sorganti of water splashing from the bottom, if you look on the left you can see the fresh water springs that flow from the rocks. A very relaxing experience
