“Our beach” ….. a hop, skip and a jump from Casa Mare. A long narrow strip, with no amenities, between Torre San Gennaro and Lendinuso, with sandy bays either end. This beach is constantly changing, sometimes with long expanses of sand, sometimes a mixture of sand, shale and pebbles and sometimes with very high tides leaving only a thin band of stones at the very top of the beach.
Castro is a nice little seaside village with a harbour. It sits at the top of a hill and overlooking the blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. Castro is named for the castle
Campo di Mare has six bays enclosed by walls made of natural stone, making it safe for children and non swimmers. It has a long sandy beach with beach lidos, with sun beds and sun umbrellas, cafes and bars.
Summer has arrived ….. Puglia beach time has started. I started this beautiful May Sunday on the beach. Shorts and t-shirt were all that was needed. With the first mug of tea of the day of course. Perfect Puglia beach time has begun.
