Torre Guaceto

Nature Reserve and Protected Marine Area

Torre Guaceto is a Nature Reserve and Protected Marine area located on the Adriatic Coastline, in the area of Upper Salento and between Ostuni and Brindisi City.

Its name originates from the sighting tower that is part of the system of coastal sighting towers built by Charl V to protect the regional territory from potential marine attacks.

Many people visit the Reserve and the Marine Area to study and observe their fauna and flora.

The vegetation diversity of Mediterranean Maquis and the number of different animal species offer the opportunity to enjoy many naturalistic sports.

Birdwatching, snorkeling and sea watching, trekking, cycling, hiking, and walking across the reserve are some of the many activities to do in the Torre Guaceto area.

Furthermore, for the sandy beaches and sun addicted, the Torre Guaceto’s beach “Punta Penna Grossa” is a must to enjoy and relax in, and maybe you’ll also be lucky to meet up a beautiful giant sea turtle.
