Adventure at the water sports club – Borgo Egnazia, Puglia

It has its own private beach, Casa Masciola, where guests can enjoy water sports and adventures galore, from kayaking to motorboat excursions and exploring hidden coves and caves. The water sports club allows guests to take part in fishing trips and boat trips, ideal for first-time fishermen and experts alike.
