Grotta della Poesia

It’s not about sandy shores and palm trees in Grotta della Poesia. But you won’t miss them when you see the crystal clear water of this swimming hole surrounded by cliffs, ideal for sunbathing or using as a natural diving board. This postcard-worthy locale can be busy in the heat of summer, so arrive early to enjoy a few moments with the cliffs and turquoise water to yourself. The royal blue sea surrounding the pool is as awe-inspiring as the swimming hole itself. The beach is also famously called as the Cave of Poetry.

Getting There

Whether you are travelling from Rome or London, Venice or Paris you can easily take a flight to the Italian city of Bari. You can rent a car at the Bari airport and drive your way to Roca Vecchia to the Cave of Poetry.
