The Water Mill bay is a bay whose name derives from the presence of a mill in the past.
It has a small beach that is now almost non-existent and can be reached by sea.
There are three caves:
- The Grotta Sfondata, closest to the beach, takes its name from a chasm on the vault of the cave itself, formed due to the action of atmospheric agents and the particular (porous) rock from which this stretch of coast is formed;
- The Shell Cave, the second cave in the bay, characterized by a large entrance and a tunnel that can be crossed again, being high enough to allow breathing.
Access to this bay is no longer permitted by land, but it is possible to visit it (with a swim stop) by taking part in one of our Otranto - Tuskish bay and/or Otranto - Stacks of Torre Sant'Andrea tours;
