Alan Rogers Review

There are some campsites where you can be comfortable, have all the amenities at hand and still feel you are connecting with nature. Under the pine and eucalyptus trees of the Bay of Taranto foreshore is Camping Riva di Ugento. Its 850 pitches nestle in and around the sand dunes and the foreshore area. They have space and trees around them and differ in size since the environment dictates the shape of many. The sea is only a short walk from most pitches and some are at the water’s edge. The site buildings resemble huge wooden umbrellas and are in sympathy with the environment.

There are swimming and paddling pools, although these are expensive to use in high season. A free cinema screens special events via satellite TV near the main bar and restaurant area. The area is sandy but well shaded, and the sea breezes scented with pine give the site a cool, fresh feel. This site has an isolated, natural ambiance that defies its size. Cycling along the kilometre of beach, we enjoyed the tranquillity of the amazing pitches – shaded, private and inviting. We were sorry to leave the site, which was by far the best we found in the area.

From Bari take the Brindisi road to Lecce, then SS101 to Gallipoli, then the SR274 towards Santa Maria di Leuca. Continue to Felline exit, and continue towards Torre San Giovanni, following the signs for Riva di Ugento. Site is well signed, turn right at traffic lights on SS19.
