The place on the coast nearest to Ostuni is Villanova which can be reached taking the road SP20. It is a typical small port that was originally called Petrolla. There is castle built by the duchess of Bona Sforza in the XVI century. It is a castle made of three wings. Above the central one rises a tower that was used as a lighthouse.

Torre Pozzella consists of a succession of small inlets protected by cliffs all covered with a beautiful Mediterranean vegetation. It is a wild and untouched coast of enchanting beauty. It is so named after a 16th century tower. The tower was built between 1565 and 1569 and is called "Pozzella" for the abundant number of "pozzi" (wells) of spring water in the area. It is also locally called "Torre sgarrrata" meaning "fallen tower". The area
Torre Guaceto is a bit far from the usual routes but certainly a beautiful series of inlets with fine sand, which are not to be missed.
