Torre dell’Orso

Beach Salento, Italy

Surfing in Salento Torre dell’Orso

While not as popular as in, say, Hawaii, surfing is definitely still a fun sport in some spots in Italy, and Torre dell’Orso with its constant wind is the ideal surfing place. Pine forests surround the sandy coasts, and out in the water sit the Two Sisters, two boulders in the middle of the sea. Legend has it that two women were so enchanted by the beauty of the sea, they jumped into the water. The gods transformed them into two big stones so they could forever admire the place they loved so much.
