From the Apulian Gargano coast to the Tremiti Islands
The Gargano is a paradise for seaside holidays with a pleasant and cool climate, a constant breeze, crystal clear water and golden sandy beaches, also for sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing and diving enthusiasts.
The only promontory in Apulia, the Gargano slopes down to the sea giving rise, to the South – to the beautiful Gulf of Manfredonia. The area, which is part of the Gargano National Park, includes the Umbrian Forest, the Protected Marine Area and the Tremiti Islands. Sandy beaches and towering cliffs provide the backdrop for ancient hamlets and villages.
Panoramic roads follow the Gargano coasts, from North to South, winding through very different landscapes. Rodi Garganico is the stretch of sand that separates the sea from two lakes, the Lesina and the Varano. Peschici with its charming hamlet is one of the most beautiful bays in Italy, and further South among the beaches and coves, Manaccore Bay, and the tourist resort par excellence of this area: Vieste.
Crystal clear water and white beaches alternating with rocky peninsulas.
With its white houses, alleys and Mediterranean vegetation it is dominated by the imposing Pizzomunno, a large vertical rock embedded in the sand.
Continuing we come to Vignanotica Bay, Campi Bay and, finally, Zagare Bay, an inlet with crystal clear water with its 2 characteristic stacks just a few metres from the shore. In this stretch of coast visit the caves, accessible by sea excursions, such as the Cave of Dreams, Cave of Bats and Smugglers Cave.
Follow the Gargano coast southwards, with the vast beaches of Mattinata, the “white butterfly of the Gargano” resting the hill like a butterfly on a flower, and Manfredonia, an ancient fishing hamlet rich in local folk traditions.
More secluded, to the North opposite the Gargano, the Tremiti Islands, the Pearls of the Adriatic.
