A day at the beach in Puglia, Italy

Originally we were set to go on a boat ride to see the sea caves but the weather was not cooperating this morning, rain had fallen last night and the wind was still bringing in a chance for rain so we postponed our boat ride for tomorrow.

So off to the beach we went. We went to the White Beach club, set up our lounge chairs and enjoyed a sunny day. At this beach the sand is a mix of tiny shells, a bit tougher on the feet and to enter the water you need to be careful as the shore is spiky lava rock. We enjoyed watching a little school of fush scurry through the water and crabs hide from us under rocks. We gathered shells along the shore, which I love to do at every beach I visit .

We enjoyed pizza at the restaurante

and tonight we had dinner at Grotta Palazzese, set in the cliffs.

This place has a spectacular view, is a romantic spot BUT THE FOOD WAS HORRIBLE! Not even edible and expensive too. So disappointing. We had heard the same reviews but were told there was a new chef so decided to try it. I dont usually give bad reviews but this restaurant needs to step up there game and get a chef that can cook.

The town itself is vibrant with lots of cute boutiques, restaurants and gelato shops everywhere. There was also a vendor street fair and the whole town seemed to be enjoying being out on a Sunday. Definitely worth going to see this cute town but skip the Grotta Palazzese please!

Love and Light,

Jeanine on the Scene
