The most photographed spot on the Bari coast, the beach at Lama Monachile is also called Cala Porto. It's named for the Roman-era bridge that overhangs it. Being right in town, it's very popular. It offers a pebble beach wedged between the cliffs on which the city itself is perched. The water is transparent. The beach gets shady quickly though because of the rocks.
