Dock a boat in Gallipoli…

Yacht tour in Gallipoli, a different way to have fun during your holidays

The connection between man and the sea goes back to the origins of man, from this places like Gallipoli still receive great fortune to this day, also thanks to the yacht tour.

Where there is sea, there is fishing and where there is fishing there are boats. Only recently has tourism been associated with the work of fishermen that every day gather their nets and go out to sea only to come back with the treasures of the Mediterranean. Every day from the marina, boats full of tourists switch on their engines to take visitors to dive into the bluest of waters, to swim with the fish and feel a sense of freedom that only sailing can give.

Our hotel has always been tied to the passion for boats with a sailor’s knot. The exclusive panoramic view from the windows and from our roof garden includes a marvellous view of the marina with its boats, sails, the sweet lapping of the water… From the swimming pool that overlooks the sea you will think you’re dreaming. The Palazzo del Corso Hotel offers excursions on a yacht to visit Punta Pizzo, a marvellous beach in the Regional Natural Reserve, during which you can also have lunch and relax with the rhythm of the sea.

Many events are organised on boats in Gallipoli: excursions and guided visits to the caves of Salento or along the coast to Santa Maria di Leuca, fishing trips, snorkeling with professionals and guides, especially between July and September. If you want to discover the beauties of the sea floor, all you have to do is put a mask and flippers on and you will discover the typical environment made of rock walls and shoals full of flora and fauna. There are scuba tanks and diving suits for experts that want to spend a day out diving. If you are beginners and want to learn there are many different courses. The most evocative places that you really cannot miss seeing there is Baia Verde, Punta Pizzo and the Parete di Ponente on the Sant’Andrea island.

The disco soul of Gallipoli mixes well with the love for the sea. On hot summer weekends, floating discotecs are made on large boats with the most popular DJs of the moment. Among these we suggest the Gallipoli Boat Party that opens on the 28th July, and goes on every Friday in August. It foresees two boat trips, one in the afternoon with music and fun and another one in the evening from 11 o’clock pm which is a really unique experience!

If you are on holiday to celebrate some special occasion, you can rent a boat for private parties. Imagine a marriage proposal on the Salento sea, under the stars and the lights from the coast, for example.
