Acquaviva is the name of a small inlet of Marina di Marittima located on the Adriatic Sea and precisely in the municipality of Diso. Acquaviva is a precious stone set among the rocks of this stretch of the Lower Salento coast. Not far from the more famous Marina di Castro, this marvelous inlet encloses all the beauty of the surrounding landscape, a naturalistic charm that manifests itself in a mixture of different colors ranging from the green of the Mediterranean scrub and the striking pine forest to the blue of the sea and the different shades of brown of the uninterrupted cliffs. The bay is found as if in an embrace of rocks and cliffs and is easily reached via a flight of steps that begins at the parking lot located at the top of this enchanted place. A typical feature of this coastal stretch that you will surely not miss to notice is the freshness of these waters due to the presence of numerous freshwater springs present here and that make your dives full of adrenaline, freshness and pleasant sensations especially on sultry days. Nature has really had fun designing these fabulous places, the charm and beauty surrounding us can be felt immediately when we get out of the car and anxiously set out towards the bay, and one step after another we can"t wait to get down to the sea for an emotionally charged swim. The water immediately becomes high, a typical feature of Salento reefs so watch out for children always accompanied, the rocky seabed is ideal for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts; the place is an absolute gem and for obvious reasons now falls under the environmental protection of the Otranto - Santa Maria di Leuca Park. Spending even a single day in Acquaviva enriches your vacation but above all your spirit because of the stupendous landscape panorama you will have in front of you, and at that point you will not even find the words to describe such a spectacle of nature. Those who come there for the first time do not forget and sooner or later return because Acquaviva represents the pride and boast of your Salento vacation, a summer to be immortalized and kept among the most precious memories!
