Day 1: Check-in
Boarding available from 17:00 on Friday at the Port of Gallipoli. The skipper will wait for you at the Port of Gallipoli and after a brief presentation of the boat and the rules of life on board, you will go on to grab some food and beverages for the trip. In the evening you'll be enjoying a moment of relaxation among the many restaurants and bars that populate this beautiful city in Salento.
Saturday morning, we'll breakfast with typical local pastries, ready to leave the moorings for a sailing along the coasts, observing all the nature that this fantastic land has to offer, up to the Porto Selvaggio Natural Park (about 3 miles north of Gallipoli), an ideal place for resting on the wonderful beach, of beautiful rocks and crystal clear water, or walking in the shade of the beautiful pine trees. We take off again towards Porto Cesareo, and then you'll finally relax on the Island of Rabbits, where you can admire a breathtaking view of unspoiled nature.
Sunday morning, protected navigation up to the beautiful island of Sant'Andrea, and afterwards we'll go on, sailing southwards. We'll admire local flora and fauna, and then move immediately to Punta Pizzo, an unspoiled paradise for lovers of rocks and small corners of pristine coast and rich in vegetation.
Anchors are raised on Monday, this time sailing towards Torre San Giovanni, but first we sail among the typical fish farms, a predominant local activity. We arrive on the ground and admire the beautiful historic tower, while in the city center there will be the opportunity to visit the shops or have lunch at the restaurant. In the afternoon, a refreshing swim on the Isle of Pazze, a small strip of sand perfect for diving.
We sail a little further south-east, to reach the many caves that surround Leuca, a real marvel for the eyes (in particular the caves of the Dragon and the Lovers, for their suggestive and interesting shapes). Finally in the afternoon we'll go North, towards Tricase and Otranto.
A short morning navigation to Torre dell'Orso, famous for its fine silver sand and the many bathing establishments, which embellish the coast. Afternoon in San Foca, one of the most important marinas on the coast.
We then set off again heading north, sailing along the coast, towards the Bosco Regional Park, and the marshes of Rauccio, where we will discover an unparalleled cultural and natural heritage.
