Distance from ostuni 12 km.
Located on the northern Adriatic coast of Salento, not far from Carovigno and San Vito dei Normanni,  the Protected Marine Area of Torre Guaceto stretches for 8 km (5 mi)  between Punta Penna Grossa and the cliffs of Apani. The reserve's  landscape is characterized by coastal dunes, with some tracts of gray dunes reaching a height of 15 meters (50 feet). South of Torre Guaceto's coastal watchtower, the shore is linear, consisting mainly of clay cliffs.   But near the tower towards the northern side, the coast unravels into a   series of crags with jagged edges, creating a fretwork of small  inlets.  However, continuing towards Punta Penna Grossa, the shore  becomes a sandy beach with shallow waters. Patches of rocky seafloor are ideal for sea-watching and snorkeling, while areas of soft, sandy seabed are covered with Posidonia oceanica (Neptune Grass) and Coral biocoenosis (biotic   communities known as Apulian pre-corals). Torre Guaceto's beach is  also  accessible to disabled people thanks to a ramp running down to the   water.
