South of Bari, a seaside hamlet that is part of the larger Mola di Bari is a quieter world to itself. You can enjoy the reefs and sandy beaches of the village of Cozze, which also offers a handful of restaurants, shops and bars. Along the Lungomare Zara you can easily access the low reef and sun on the rocks and hop in the water (bring water shoes), or find the sandy parts. There are sections of free public beach, as well as a nice beach club that offers a full range of services, including umbrellas and sun beds. The Lido Coco Beach Club is an upscale resort with umbrellas and chairs scattered on a sandy cove as well as on platforms; with a swimming pool, beach bar, changing cabins, games for kids, and a nice restaurant. (Reservations recommended.)
