2017 CALENDAR

PORTO CESAREO

Porto Cesareo sits on a prestigious part of Italy’s Ionian coast, enjoying a long stretch of beach and sparkling clean seas. The popular seaside resort has an amazing 17kms of golden beach facing an archipelago of low-lying islands that form a protected bay, a beautiful small port and a marina.

Porto Cesareo is also the home of a nature preserve that is a marine protected area rich in flora and fauna with very rare species. Underwater excursions allow for viewing of the unique coral formations, turtles, sea horses, and other marine life.

Low rocky bluffs offer coves and snorkeling holes. Porto Cesareo has a beach-town atmosphere with loads of restaurants, cafes and some discos. The main focus is on the water and the beach, and the townspeople maintain their active fishing fleet, along with agricultural endeavours on the fertile plains that stretch inland behind the town.

Every year, Porto Cesareo puts on a Palio event, a unique water-based boating competition of skill that celebrates their fishing and seafaring traditions.
