Salento - Porto Miggiano

porto miggiano

Porto Miggiano is one of the most memorable spots I've seen in the last years - despite various travels around the Caribbean and South East Asia. It's the almost hidden location, the vibrant azzurro, the wilderness (you'll have to bring water, food and anything else you need to survive, as there's literally nothing but pristine waters and few rocks to lay on down there) that make it so magical. As you access through broken stairs and fences, down to that bunch of rocks half covered by concrete, you wonder about the background story.

Lucky us we had Fabri. Friend, Salentino native and guide during those days, he explained that while the original plan was to build some saltwater pools, environmentalists managed to stop it, leaving the spot half finished but notoriously amazing, just like many other things in Italy I have to say.

There are a bunch of parking spots near the beach, maybe the easiest is to drive towards 19 Summer Club, park and walk towards Porto Miggiano Beach in the map below. Bring water, sunscreen and snorkeling gear, the rocks are home to a bunch of cool fishes.
