Polignano a Mare | PUGLIA ON FILM.

Polignano a Mare, Puglia. 

A very blazing, bright light after a very long, dark tunnel which was the last four months since I last posted on here, came in the form of an extended weekend to Puglia at the end of September with some very fabulous friends and oh my god was it wholeheartedly appreciated. To be by the sea for five days was a luxury that felt very out of reach, and to be by Polignano A Mare, one of the most beautiful spots I've been to for sun-basking was surreal. Not to mention the Italian food. So much so, I photographed it about once every five minutes, as evident from my digital photographic showcase below. Not quite one of the instant go-to's when it comes to hotspots in Italy, Puglia is drop-dead gorgeous and somewhere I'd go back to in a heartbeat. Scroll for some recommendations...

EAT | Pescaria 🐙
Wildy popular for their speciality seafood menu - particularly the octopus burger - completely lives up to the hype and the best recommendation we had for the trip. I had the salmon, burrata mousse and crouton salad with a very delicious bottle of rose. 

FOOD | Il Grottino 🍹
A great spot for a long lunch with delicious food, aperols and alfresco tables perfectly placed for people watching. Didn't have pizza on the menu for lunch but apparently they do very good pizzas, too. 

LUNCH SPOT | Pietra Piatta 🍕
On our last afternoon in Polignano a Mare, we got takeaway pizzas and sat on the cliffs overlooking the Porto bay. So dreamy. A couple was getting their wedding photographs behind us which is testament to just how beautiful a spot on the rocks can be. 

SWIM | Grotta Piana 🐚
The most picturesque beach going - beautiful water next to a small (but perfectly formed) sunbathing spot. 
Side note: one of the most uncomfortable beaches to walk on - bring flip flops - there is absolutely no graceful way to walk out of the sea without them.
