A wild-looking beach

The dense vegetation on the dunes gives the landscape a wild aspect, shade and cool. The beach is mostly free to access, however equipped with kiosks e bar, where to find drinks, ice creams and refreshments in the sunniest hours.
The beauty of this beach is also characterized by the mouth of the Chindro river that right here meets the sea directly. The very cold waters of the river (even in the height of summer), combined with the temperate ones of the sea, constitute a peculiar condition.
Many swimmers love to immerse themselves in the waters of the river to refresh and tone the body.

A sea full of history

A curiosity about San Pietro in Bevagna perhaps not very well known is that, ignored for about 1700 years, you can see them 20 marble sarcophagi of the Imperial Age (III century AD). These archaeological assets, defined "sarcophagi of the King”, are visible at approx 4-6 meters deep in the seas of the maritime hamlet of Manduria. It is the tangible testimony of how they were produced, semi-finished products, transported and then decorated once they arrive at their destination. According to the reconstructions of the scholars, these marble products could originate from the Meander Valley, today's Turkey.
