This place is so beautiful. The water is cristal clear and turquoise and the same time. You can jump. In some areas you can stand up and you can swim outside the cave. Because it’s open you can feel the heat of the sun.

Very good place to visit, and dive into! It's a good experience to enjoy for everyone. Unfortunately, during the summer is totally crowded BUT the joyful atmosphere is also very amusing.

This place is something really unique so definitely worth a visit if in Puglia. Usually it is overcrowded with people but you can still take some pictures and a dive in the turquoise waters.

A beautiful Grotta. You just want to jump off the cliff into the refreshing, crystal clear water. Not too busy, especially in September.

A must-do if you're in the Salento with a few adventurous types e.g. teenage daredevils. If you're brave enough, you can jump off a 30 foot high cliff into the sea, for those less foolhardy, you can jump from around 15 feet into the central...More

Yep, do not park on the road! No matter how many cars there are parked! You will get a ticket! When we got there, there car-park was full. But then - we were there in August.
