The beaches of the busy town of Otranto have been voted the cleanest beaches in Italy. If you like your beach to come with a bustling town life, this is the one for you. Beach or no beach, Otranto, is definitely a day trip not to miss.

Take the litoranea south via San Cataldo, San Foca, Torre dell’ Orso and many other beach towns. When you reach the Alimini lakes, investigate any of the sandy beaches along the coastline or head into Otranto itself for the town beach. And of course in Otranto you will be spoilt for choice for somewhere to lunch or to have dinner after a long relaxing day on the beach.
