Tuesday, 02 August 2022 09:00

Puglia’s sea is the best in Italy, its bathing waters having been rated 99% and excellent,  following close control and monitoring by Arpa,  the National Environmental Protection System. This puts Puglia ahead of Sardinia, which received 97.6% and Tuscany at 96%. 

Puglia has 676 designated bathing areas

Along its 1,000 kilometres of coastline, Puglia has 676 areas designated for bathing. After this year’s results, Arpa Puglia's Director General, Vito Bruno stated “We are pleased to note that once again this year Puglia ranks first in Italy for the healthiness of its bathing waters.”

5-star Borgo Egnazia has private beach access

An excellent way to enjoy the crystal-clear waters in Puglia is to stay at Borgo Egnazia which has private access to the sea. This five-star property is located a five minutes’ drive from the local fishing village of Savelletri, and one hour from both Bari and Brindisi airports, and is an ideal base from which to uncover a trove of Italian history, cuisine, and beaches. 

A choice of two beaches 

The property offers two incredible beaches: the sandy La Fonte and the chic and stylish Cala Masciola Beach Club which is a great option for avoiding the crowds in summer. With sophisticated cabanas and a seafood grill restaurant serving local specialties, in the evening it comes alive with special dinners and events lasting until sunrise. 

Ideal for families and couples

Borgo Egnazia is in the style of a traditional Apulian village with a modern twist on the whitewashed masseria style that is synonymous with this still largely undiscovered region of Italy. Space and privacy are offered by the 63 Suites, 92 Casette mini houses, and 29 Case which are perfect for families and couples alike.  

Near a championship golf course

The nearby 18-hole 72-par San Domenico Golf is a championship course with idyllic views of the sea from each hole, and is perfectly integrated into Puglia’s dramatic Mediterranean coastal landscapes.
