Torre dell’Orso | quick guide

Overlooked by the ruins of the Torre dell’Orso (the Bear Tower) this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Puglia with its stunning natural rock formations.

Beach clubs and lidos run along the length of the beach, frequented by young Italians

With soft, white sand, crystal clear sea and its gently undulating dunes dappled with maquis scrub, the Spiaggia delle Due Sorelle (Two Sisters beach) at the other end has a wonderful pine grove behind it.

Dominating the view from the beach are two sea stacks, the Two Sisters (Le Due Sorelle). According to legend, two dutiful and innocent sisters transformed by the gods into two beautiful rocky stacks in the middle of the sea to save them from drowning so they could be together forever.

“Our gaydars have never been as confused as when we first hit the beaches of Puglia. Italian men (gay and straight) take good care of their bodies and have a lot of pride in what they wear. And we love them for it!”

The beach clubs and lidos have lounger and umbrellas for and bar facilities with toilets. Restaurants and bars are adjacent and parking can be found on the street running behind the beach.
