2nd of June at the sea or on the lake?

There are so many ideas to spend this long weekend away from the usual daily grind, alone or with the family, starting with the seaside places that in Italy, from North to South, are so many and ready to satisfy every type of request and requirement.

Salento is one of the destinations that offers a crystalline sea, shallow waters and spectacular views for a first taste of summer. Especially on the Ionian coast, in fact, it is possible to find expanses of white sand and shallow waters suitable for entertaining even children.

There is no shortage of very suggestive coves surrounded by dense vegetation, where you can enjoy the most complete relaxation basking in the first warm sun of June, without having to give up the services offered by the bathing establishments on site. In Gallipoli, for example, there are easily accessible beaches suitable for younger guests, who can play safely and quietly. Another ideal destination to spend this long weekend by the sea is the Cilento coast, where you can enjoy wonderful natural landscapes by taking a boat trip.
