Torre Dell'Orso is a bathing locality of Salento in the marine of Melendugno, in the province of Lecce. It is known for its wide beach with fine silver sand and crystal-clear water thanks to the currents of the Otranto canal. Beacuse of this, Torre dell'Orso is populated by many tourists during the summer and was awarded multiple times with a "Bandiera Blu" for its clean sea. The beach is a 800-meter inlet delimited by two high cliffs. Behind the beach there are low dunes with an "artificial" pinewood planted during the fascist regime. South of the inlet, there is the estuary of the Brunese stream.
Places to know and visit
In the southern part of the bay of Torre dell'Orso, at a short distance from the beach, there are the two sea stacks called "Le due sorelle", the two sisters. According to the legend, they owe their name to two sisters that skipped work and decided to go to the sea. When they reached Torre dell'Orso, they jumped from a cliff in a stormy sea and never returned to the shore. The Gods were moved by their story and decided to transform them into the two suggestive cliffs.
