Crystal-clear sea and fine white sand surrounded by green pinewoods
Marina di Ginosa is a bathing locality, fraction of the municipality of Ginosa, in the province of Taranto. An enchanting town full of monuments and places of interest framed by a heavenly landscape. The entire coastline is surrounded by mediterranean-scrub pinewoods that are included in the protected area of "Pinete dell'Arco Ionico".
Marina di Ginosa offers a unique landscape, a crystal-clear sea whose bottom is covered in Poseidonia, coral seaweeds, sea anemones and sponges that became the home of many fishes and sea turtles. Marina di Ginosa's sea was awarded with a "bandiera blu" for eighteen times and in the 2009 it received the sails of Legambiente. This award is a result of the many initiatives took to promote the environmental sustainability, waste management and attempts to promote the environmental themes. On the coastline, green areas of mediterranean scrub alternate with beach clubs and accommodation facilities.
Marina di Ginosa offers, together with its wonderful sea and uncontaminated nature, many natural and artificial places of interest: the Salinella lake is one of the best natural attractions, on the border between Basilicata and Puglia, and is the perfect place for bird watchers; Torre Mattoni, a medieval sighting tower; the two pinewoods called "Polmoni verdi dell'abitato" (green lungs of the inhabited centre) Pineta Regina and Pineta Cavese.
