Porto Selvaggio

Beautiful seaside resort of Nardò, known for its rugged coastline and its natural bays, surrounded by the Mediterranean maquis, offers an unforgettable setting for lovers of nature and relaxation.
Porto Selvaggio and its rocky Coast

Porto Selvaggio is a beautiful marina of the town of Nardò, located on the Ionian coast of the province of Lecce. This place is particular important from the environmental point of view, as its territory is included within the Regional Natural Park of Porto Selvaggio and Palude del Capitano. This is a very high cost and purely rocky, surrounded by lush vegetation, which is why we have the impression of being in a beautiful place in the mountains at just few steps from the sea.

To reach this beautiful location, it is advisable to park car along the coast, then cross walking the stretch of coast and forest leading abruptly in front of a beautiful and enchanting bay where you will spend a memorable day by the clear, colourful sea.

From the bay you can see on your right Torre Uluzzo, on the left Torre dell’Alto and a small beach nearby, characterised by some underwater fresh water sources. This is an especially popular location for its splendour, full of rugged rocky bays and natural coves, alternating with short stretches of sand.


The resort of Porto Selvaggio is partially changed through time. Formerly the territory occupied by the beautiful park, was solely a forest of oaks; over successive years, the deforestation led to an impoverishment of the area. The trees that are found in the Park area are the result of reforestation carried out in the 50s, mainly with Aleppo pines.
