Torre Guaceto

Torre Guaceto is a protected marine area and widlife reserve located about an hour's drive south of Molfetta. The reserve includes a stretch of coast six kilometers long, strongly characterised by typical Mediterranean landscape ranging from the sea to sand dunes, Mediterranean scrub and marshes, bordered by centuries-old olive groves.

So that's what it means to lay around like a log!

What a gorgeous place...reminds me a bit of the Panhandle area in Florida.

How much beauty in a beach without people! Think of it in August...

Great colour across this frame. I've never visited this part of the world, but I will one day!

This beach is beautiful and I can only imagine what the rest of the reserve is like. I think it's wonderful when people set aside much-desired land for wildlife sanctuaries.

Wonderful composition with the driftwood and rocks.
