A Morning on the Water in Polignano a Mare

We catch a tuk tuk to the harbor in Polignano for a cruise along the coast.  The tuk tuk is open and we have a great view of the city as we whiz through it.

Travelling by tuk tuk

The harbor is full and we find our ship and head out into the sea.

Heading out

As we cruise up the coast, we stop to see the rock formations and caves below the city.

Rock formations

We pass the site of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, with a great view of the diving platforms from the sea.

Just past the platforms is Polignano's beach, where the divers come out of the water after their dive.

We continue up the coast, admiring the colors of the rock formations.

We pass by our hotel and get a great view of the hotel restaurant in the grotto:  Grotta Palazzese.

We see the old and new city, both perched on the cliffs above the sea.

Polignano overlooking the Adriatic

And, more colorful rock walls under the city.

More rocks

We enter a cave along the way and explore the rock formations from the inside.

Into the cave we go

Looking away from the city, the Adriatic Sea is beautiful, with a few sailboats out enjoying the day.

A great day for sailing

And, on the rock above the sea, people (without sailboats) are fishing the the waters.

What a relaxing day on the water and great views of the coast and caves.
