Porto Miggiano

A body of water among the rocks

Near Santa Cesarea Terme, in Salento, there is a stunning place: the Porto Miggiano beach.

This site is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Apulia because of the beautiful sea, the unspoiled nature, and the thermal baths.

It’s called the beach with the 100 stairs

Porto Miggiano beach: heaven on Earth

The Porto Miggiano beach is located on a very particular u-shaped rock overlooking the sea and surrounded by incredible white cliffs.

Yes, in Apulia you can also see cliffs!

This beach is also known as the beach with the 100 stairs: the difficulty of access to the beach, due to all of these stairs, is rewarded with the breathtaking view that you have once you arrive! A must-see!

The seabed is rich in flora and fauna, part of an incredible and beautiful ecosystem: this is why this beach is often chosen for snorkeling but also other exciting activities!

This beach, for its shape, it’s not the right choice for families but it’s perfect for enjoying the sea with friends!


This beach seems ideal to have fun while enjoying the sun but here you can also discover some history in prehistoric caves, such as the Romanelli one!

The 100 tufa stairs are rugged: the erosion of the sea is slowly crumbling this area so you can reach the beach also by boat!

Near this beautiful beach, there is an ancient defending tower called Torre Miggiano, dating back to 1500 and recently restored, which stands on a rock that plunges directly into the sea: you must see it, it’s amazing!

The weather will be perfect anyway, trust us!

 If you are at Porto Miggiano beach, you can’t miss Santa Cesarea Terme or Castro: those wonderful places are just a few km from Porto Miggiano!

One last tip: choose May or September if you want to enjoy this place without the crowd!
