Today we went to Praia A Mare. It's roughly a 2 hour drive from Fagnano Castello up the coast.
We hire beach umbrellas and beach chairs till early afternoon and relax and swim in the beautiful ocean. Praia A Mare also has a blue grotto where you can either take a tour for €5 per person or hire paddle boats like we did for €12 per person and oddly yourself there and jump in for a swim.

But there is the hotels private beach on the other side of the pool with steps into a seawater pool. Frustratingly hardly any internet...how we get ...
... climbing but easy this time as on the road to next village, stopped for icecream and coffee. Such delightful and welcoming bar owners. Only 5 kms to village... BUT ironically we set off on the 17 mills walk....I for one saw none!!! Tomorrow (Monday) is meant to be a hard day, from top of highest mountain in the area to the sea. See how we can stuff this one up! This is the fun of these walks - the challenges presented each ...
