Seaside resort in Salento located to the east of Lecce, is chosen by vacationers who prefer relaxation and the sea, compared to nightlife and clubs. It is located between Spiaggiabella and Casalabate and is characterised by low urbanisation, typical Mediterranean vegetation and a large beach. The beach stretches for several kilometres, starting from Casalabate and continuing to Spiaggiabella.
The sand is fine, without pebbles and the height of the water slopes gently, allowing children to swim easily. The sea is particularly clear and clean when the wind blows from the south or west. The name Torre Rinalda, derives from the Torre Omonima, now partly collapsed, one of the many sixteenth-century towers, built to defend Salento from attacks by Saracen pirates. A few km away is Casalabate, which has various useful services (market, pharmacy, restaurant and more) and the wonderful Lecce (7 minutes by car). Also close to Spiaggiabella. Not far from Torre Rinalda, in the hinterland, there is the splendid Abbey of Santa Maria a Cerrate. Then, in Torre Rinalda, the stretch of coast is enchanting: the expanse of white sand and the sea, with its clear waters, give visitors one of the most beautiful views of Salento. Frequented above all by the locals and appreciated for the crystalline backdrop in which it is possible to admire all the shades of green and blue.
An oasis of tranquility, away from the crowds of the most famous beaches (in fact it is never too crowded). For surf and kite-surf enthusiasts, Torre Rinalda is a highly recommended destination. Part of the marina is located within the Natural Park of Rauccio, a typical example of Mediterranean maquis protected by the WWF and by Lecce, the capital of the Baroque, where you can admire the fine art and the nightlife.
