It seems that the all the Lidos and beach clubs of this small kind of peninsula near Otranto are closed due to a kind of failure of the terrain. The good news is that a 5 min drive takes you to bahia dei Turchi, packed...More

We drove an hour out of the way to go to this beach club that showed it was open online last weekend. It was a Saturday so not sure if it is closed permanently or if that was a one off, looked deserted.

The way to La Dolce Riva leads you through the outskirts of the city of Otranto and along the way you expect a lot but not a beach club like that. La Dolce Riva is a pretty modern, posh beach / lounge club, with plenty...More

A beach/water experience with a difference. Totally relaxed atmosphere, excellent facilities, private parking, crystal clear water and best of all friendly and helpful staff. A little bit expensive but totally worth it. By the way nice food for lunch as well.
