Torre dell'Orso

Torre dell'Orso is located along the Adriatic coast of Salento in Puglia, near the town of Melendugno. It is a beautiful beach of the length of about 800 meters with fine sand, clear sea and bordered by high cliffs. Along the cliff south of the beach there is an interesting cave, the Grotta di San Cristoforo, with some ancient graffiti, and off the coast two very similar stacks closed to each other, called 'Le due sorelle', the two sisters.

Torre dell'orso can be reached by taking the SP297 from the town of Melendugno.
