Le Canne beach
The first beach of our itinerary, about 500 meters from our villa, is Le Canne beach (among the sand dunes grow the characteristic wild reeds). It is a beach of extraordinary beauty, especially during the months of June, September and October. For the presence of the El Cohiba ’59 private lido, it is now known as “Cohiba Beach”. There are: ice cream, restaurant, self service, pizzeria, pub, tobacconist, canoe rental, skates. The beach also has two public parts, on the sides, which we suggestduring the closure of the bathing establishment or, in the evening, for a walk or a night swim on warm summer evenings.
La Fontana beach
The second beach of our itinerary is the Fontana Beach, today also known as Spiaggia del Gabbiano, due to its proximity to the well-known hotel Il Gabbiano. The beach is not very large but is divided into two small sandstones, with some rocks in the central part. It has a small and nice Capitan Morgan lido. In the evening it is possible to admire the Spiaggia delle Canne with the lights of the coast that are reflected in the water.
Lido Silvana beach
Beautiful beach with the well-known Fatamorgana lido which is one of the best equipped and also has entertainment for children. It has a Self Service restaurant, pizzeria, bar (in 2019 it will probably be closed for maintenance). On the right side there are some free parts very popular with the boys which we suggest you if the private lido is closed. On the left (seeing the sea) there is still a military beach and, towards the promontory, a free beach that is very suggestive, especially in the early morning and at sunset. The sand is fine and white, the colors of the water range from turquoise to emerald green. The promontory is a very important archaeological site and, a few meters below the water, there are some relics from the Roman era and probably treasures of ancient boats buried by sand. That stretch of coast was in fact one of the oldest trade routes of Magna Graecia and some finds are visible in the new Archaeological Museum of Pulsano (MAP).
