Otranto is a beautiful old town with a long and rich history, and has amazing stone houses, narrow cobblestone streets, a lively port, and an endless blue sea edged by a small yet charming beach. Otranto used to be an important Greek, and later Roman, port and has now been taken over by tourists who roam the narrow streets, relax in the quaint cafes and restaurants, watch the local children jumping from the steep rocks, and enjoy the sun and the sea on the small city beach that tends to get very crowded during the high season.
If you are looking for a larger and more secluded beach, venture outside the city and try the beautiful sandy beaches like Baia dei Turchi. On a clear day, you can see all the way across the Adriatic to Albania – you are in the easternmost part of Italy.
