Fishing boats sit in Porto Badisco, in southern Italy's Puglia region,
near Lecce. The region has some of the brightest seas.








Brilliant seas



"I said put it back, this is a natural park," a stern father told his son. He was pointing to the octopus
that sat with protruding eyes on the boy's shoulders after being plucked from the crystalline waters
at Natural Maritime Reserve of Torre Guaceto, just north of Brindisi.

With more than 500 miles of coast on two seas, the Adriatic and the Ionian, Puglia has all sorts of
gorgeous beaches. For white limestone cliffs spotted with the deep green of gnarled pine trees, try
the southernmost tip of Salento.

At opposite ends of this peninsula, I swam in the fingerlike cove of Porto Badisco, where legend has it
that Italy's mythological founder, Aeneas, landed, and I dove even deeper into history at Portoselvaggio,
where remains of Neanderthal men were found.

A few miles north, it's all about sandy expanses, like Punta della Suina, where the setting sun turns the
transparent water pink.

But it's Torre Guaceto that gets my gold medal for the baby-powder white sand, the schools of silvery
fish flitting from reef-like rock formations in pools of turquoise water, and the scent of pine needles drifting
from the pristine forest that borders the beach.
