I was stunned by how gorgeous this part of Puglia was. Although the seaside towns are quite concrete jungles hand a bit ugly, the beaches and the sea are just divine. I went in shoulder season so it was all manageable and not too crowded.Would...More

We were expecting at least some similarity with Maldives - we were wrong! The beach was dirty - I don’t understand how it got a blue flag. The sand is dark and water deep. It was not busy when we arrived because there was a...More

To avoid in August, too crowded and small beaches, amazing sea but the stay is a nightmare due to the enormous amount of people already there at 8am. Better July or September

Super full beach, not even possible to rent an expensive umbrella (all reserved). Beach overcrowded but definetly not “white beach”. Make sure you have your own umbrella. Parking per day 4euros so it is ok but we did bit stay more then an hour. Booking...More

The name “Le Maldive del Salento” gives completely wrong over expectations of this beach establishment. It literally has nothing to do with Maldive. - 35 Euro for cramped in sun beds in the first row having hundreds of people walking in front of you every...More

We visited the great beach area, which has private & free areas, for the day. Shallow sea is great for just lazing around. Nice white sand. The beach bar was good for drinks & food.

Maldive is just a marketing name. Over priced private beach. Sun beds very close to each other. Horrible restaurant. Water is far from being anywhere close to Maldive waters.
