Saline dei Monaci

Nature Reserve, east coast of Taranto

The Reserve of Saline dei Monaci, literally translated as Salt pans of Monks, is a very small salty lake where, during the high tide, the seawater flows by a small canal.

This protected area is characterized by Mediterranean Maquis and many species of birds indeed, birdwatching is one of the main activities to practice enjoying the Reserve.

Mallards, swans, red and white herons and many others keep company to lots of beautiful pink flamingos that decided living here permanently.

Torre Colimena

Sandy Dunes

Behind the fence that draws the salt pans borders, there are the Dunes of Torre Colimena, a family-friendly sandy beach.

This lovely beach is distinguished by white sand and low sea bed long for meters, so it’s the perfect beach for families who want to leave their children playing.

Just a few meters from the beach and the reserve, you find the sighting tower that gives the name to the entire location: Torre Colimena.

Torre Colimena is one of the coastal sighting towers that has been better conserved in years: it is perfectly intact and wonderfully surrounded by prickly pears plants.
