Snorkelling in sea grottosPuglia, Italy
If those blue waters of the Adriatic Sea weren’t dazzling enough to look at, try snorkelling in them beneath the white limestone cliffs of Cala Corvino Bay. With the help of a mask and snorkel you can explore the spectacular string of caves, arches and grottos that scatter the coastline. Thanks to its rocky base, the waters here are renowned for their clarity and aqua hue.
Professional guides know where to go to show you the best spots: sites such as the Aquarium, a semi-submerged cavern full of sea sponges, the Sirens and the Pacchi caverns. At the Grotto of the Fairies, a little-known pool on a tiny beach with fine white sand, you’ll even spot marine fossils in the rock.
A head torch will help you explore inside caverns while shallow pools are ideal for poking around in search of critters. Guides are knowledgeable in marine biology and will give you a heads up before jumping in so you know what to look out for.
