Infos & Booking

Imperia tour details:

The IMPERIA tour will accompany you to discover the coast NORTH of Otranto.

The FARO BIANCO, or “lighthouse of the tip” is the first to present itself to passengers to welcome them.

We will continue towards the LA CASTELLANA beach and then towards the small but safe STAFFA, a bay with very fine and abundant sand. Its name takes the shape of a horseshoe and has a “defensive” function against the calm from the summer north wind, very capricious.

The journey continues by visiting the Cala della CAVE MONACA, whose name derives from the “monk seal” that was believed to inhabit it. On calm days, you can enter, albeit with caution.

We will then reach the BAY OF THE WATER MILL which with its beautiful limestone caves is an oasis in the waters of Otranto; is a pristine beach in Salento where you can enjoy a clear and crystalline sea.

Later we will arrive at the suggestive BAIA DEI TURCHI, known for the famous landing of the Turks in about 1480; the bay belongs to the precious protected oasis of the Alimini Lakes, one of the most important ecosystems of Salento and Puglia.

Once we reach this last location, we will return and end the tour at the port of Otranto.


From north to south, the excursions will make you experience Salento and its wonders as you have never done before. The sea hides secrets and only by plowing it is it possible to discover them.
