Among boats and white houses, the suggestive fishermen's cove of Polignano a Mare


Coves Polignano Mare PortalgaThere are places in Polignano a Mare where time seems to have stopped, this is the case of this fantastic cove in the southernmost area of ​​the town.

It is a small and characteristic corner of Puglia which still manages to preserve that typical atmosphere of a fishing town which adds to the color and transparency of the splendid sea of ​​Polignano . It is obviously not a beach with all the comforts, but rather a cove that deserves to be visited and, why not, also a dip in its splendid sea; in fact, despite the presence of the typical boats , people do not give up taking a bath in the inviting waters of Cala Port' Alga , so clear and clean.

Being very small, Cala Port' Alga obviously does not have ample space to rest with towels and umbrellas, however, as it is not a full-fledged beach, the turnout is not noteworthy, which is why a small place on the shore by the sea it is quite easy to find. What should be highlighted, however, is the great interest of travelers and tourists in immortalizing this lovely landscape from above, with the fishermen's terraces overlooking the sea (almost reminiscent of the typical locations in Greece) , the colored boats on transparent water and the rock that frames this almost picturesque landscape.

This suggestive glimpse of Polignano a Mare , therefore, could certainly be the ideal place to spend a few hours enjoying an almost surreal atmosphere, where sea, history and tradition come together in a mix of relaxation and lots of good health given the uncontaminated nature of the area.

Speaking of relaxation, there is another truly curious aspect that you will inevitably find during your little excursion in this splendid cove ; it is a bookcase made from a boat (you can find it in the next images by scrolling down this page) whose message reads "Take a book, leave a book" .

Coves to see Polignano a Mare An attraction located in the middle of the vegetation that characterizes this place and which you will most likely not fail to notice during your walk. How do you reach this cove? Luckily there is a road that can be easily traveled by car and which leads to an area dedicated to car parking ; from this point you will find two passages exactly in front of you, the first is a white door (photo on the left) which allows you to enjoy a panoramic view from above, while the second passage is the one that will take you right inside the cove passing from the small terraces of the fishermen's houses.

During your journey you may also find some cute cats that frequent the area and that every day doze on the surrounding walls (just as happens in Greece) , a small detail that will create even more enthusiasm for those who love animals and nature.
