Beautiful water. We parked on the road - didn’t get a fine but take your own chances ;-) we brought food but there were kiosks there at reasonable prices. Maybe cause it was July. Brought an umbrella but then stayed in the pines. Recommend it.

Ah the beauty of Salento. Loved it. Be prepared with good sandals or waking shoes. Flip flops will be rather dangerous and you don't want anything to spoil the fun.
