Torre Vado, thanks to its strategic position in Salento, between the Capo di Santa Maria di Leuca and Gallipoli, due to the nature of its landscape and the presence of many services, offers the possibility of a perfect holiday for every type of tourist: young people will love the fantastic beaches of Pescoluse, Posto Vecchio and Torre Pali with their equipped beaches that turn into disco pubs at night; families will appreciate the presence of services and spaces for children; sports enthusiasts a long promenade where to practice physical activity other than that in the water.
The sea of Torre Vado is one of the many riches of this land. Clear and fragrant waters, a sea full of fish and rich in many species of fish that arrive every morning on the Paranze dei Pescatori directed to the restaurants and fishmongers of Torre Vado. The sea in Torre Vado is not only fishing, but also fun, sports such as scuba diving, surfing and long swims.
Along the coast that precedes Piazza Torre, the coast of Torre Vado is low and easy to access; the white pebbles are smoothed by the action of the sea and allow you to lie down comfortably for sunbathing. Here the scent of the water is particularly intense and you can have fun exploring the seabed with a mask, rediscovering a spectacular underwater world.
After passing piazza torre, near the tourist port, there is a small sandy beach where, in the summer, water aerobics and gymnastics courses and other recreational activities take place. Throughout the promenade, the coast is always low and easily accessible, there are also platforms for access to the sea by the disabled, and then arrive in the locality of Sorgenti: here there are many pools of spring water, fresh and very fresh and considered by many to be a cure-all for improving blood circulation. Finally, adjacent to the Sorgenti we find the beautiful sandy beach of Posto Vecchio and Pescoluse. Here is one of the best known sandy beaches in Puglia: “the Maldives of Salento” a true paradise for lovers of sandy beaches and equipped beaches that truly offer many services and comforts here.
The beach of Pescoluse, together with that of Torre Pali and Posto Vecchio (municipality of Salve) have obtained over the years the recognition of the four sails of Legambiente. A well-deserved report as these beaches are among the most beautiful and clear in all of Puglia. You have the feeling of really being in an exotic beach thanks to the white color of the sand, the clarity of the water, the high natural dunes that embrace the beach.
The sandy beaches offer all kinds of services to make a beach holiday on the beach pleasant and comfortable: there are many equipped bathing establishments, perfectly integrated into the surrounding environment and respectful of natural resources; you have the opportunity to rent umbrellas and deck chairs, pedal boats, participate in the various activities of the bathing establishments such as aerobics, mini club, water aerobics, or simply use the various refreshment points that offer drinks, ice cream or truly delicious cocktails.
For lovers of long nights under the stars, some refreshment points and bathing establishments become clubs and discopubs at night where the music and the desire to have fun continues until dawn when, after a hot croissant, you can safely return to to sleep.
Nature lovers, on the other hand, can have fun organizing excursions by boat, horseback or trekking to discover the many archaeological and landscape beauties that Capo di Leuca offers.
