Description of Torre dell’Orso kayak trip

On the way we will show you hidden caves and ravines, all to be explored! After putting on the life jackets and entering our kayaks, we will be ready to sail south along the splendid coast of Roca. We will visit the famous Cave of Poetry , the most famous place on this stretch of coast. It is one of the most beautiful 10 natural pools in the world . The Cave of Poetry is a natural cavity without a roof and is connected to the sea through a canal that can also be passed through by swimming. At this point you can go back or land on Torre dell’Orso beach, a strip of land 800 meters long and bordered on both sides by high cliffs, renowned for its silver-colored sand and crystal clear waters. Once back in our kayaks we will pass under the two famous stacks of the Torre dell’Orso bay, called The Two Sisters. Finally, the return to the base will follow.

Torre dell’Orso is a marina of Melendugno (LE). It has a beautiful, very extensive and crescent-shaped beach between two cliffs. Offshore you can admire the two famous white stacks, the Two Sisters . Despite the extension, the beach is always crowded with people in summer. A great way to visit it is to get to Torre dell’Orso by kayak, directly from the sea.


It is a circular shaped cave which can be accessed from the sea via a narrow tunnel. It lacks the vault and therefore you can also access it from the ground with a dip from a few meters in height. The Cave of Poetry is actually made up of two distinct caves: Big Cave of Poetry and Small Cave of Poetry. They form a complex of underground caves near a source of fresh water.


On the south side of the bay, while going away with the kayaks from Torre dell’Orso, you pass under two spectacular sea stacks. They are two very similar rocks, so much so that the locals call them the “two sisters”. On their origin, a legend is told that these two stacks were born from the homage made by the Gods to two sisters, drowned in this stretch of sea. To convince the Gods to perform such an act there was the courage, alas vain, of one of the two sisters in trying to save the other.
