  • Is a beach far less note than many others in the area, but it's really worth seeing: the view from the top (from rocks or from the street) is special, the sea is just beautiful. A few drawbacks: it is a rocky beach so a little uncomfortable for sunbathing and there are no shadows.

  • The fantastic Bay of Ciolo, named derived from magpie or Crow, birds of this area, can be reached along the coastline that connects Santa Maria di Leuca in Novaglie. This site gives the visitor an unusual and beautiful view overlooking the sea: to unite the two sides higher than rocks, there is a large deck from which and also by the high surrounding rocks, some foolhardy plunge into the sea below the green shades. For those who do not want to be so bold, there is access to the sea via a long staircase (caution for poor or absent maintenance) that come out of a low and smooth cliff; with a bit of goodwill and a little bit of swimming you can admire the fascinating Grotta del Ciolo "made even more beautiful by the presence of a pond inside. Everything wonderful, although it should be noted, unfortunately, the repeated entry of rudeness (garbage spread) of which many are.
