Porto Selvaggio

Nature Reserve Salento, Italy

Secret Seaside Porto Selvaggio

Porto Selvaggio is the name of the protected coastline near Nardò, which stretches from the seaside town of Santa Caterina to beyond Torre Uluzzo. The coast road that cuts through part of the park is a lovely scenic drive and at certain points, there are car parks and roadside parking so you can get into the forest and head down to the beach. Baia di Porto Selvaggio is not accessible by car but you can walk to it, along paths through a magnificent pine forest, accompanied by an orchestra of a million cicadas. Some inspiring trekkings on Wikiloc. Your efforts will be rewarded with an idyllic bay where you can bathe in some of the cleanest water in the Med. The cliffs and rocky terrain of the Porto Selvaggio coast are popular with teenagers who put their nerves to the test by diving from great heights into the deep water.
