Karst cliffs, lush vegetation, crystal clear water, pleasant locations, places of faith and genuine flavors are the main elements defining the area of Gargano (Region of Apulia), the “spur” of boot-shaped Italy.
This small archipelago located off the north coast of the Parco Nazionale del Gargano provides a fantastic opportunity to escape and explore a different way of life.
A pearl in nature, Gargano isa protected site within the National Park that includes the Foresta Umbra, the marine reserve of the Tremiti Islands and the coastal Lakes of Lesina and Varano. Nature trails abound, perfect for exploring and admiring the lush vegetation that gives shelter to the many animal and bird species.
You can reach the Tremiti Islands via a ferry from Termoli or Rodi which are both coastal towns approximately 30 minutes from Foggia.
San Domino and San Nicola are the main inhabited islands and provide most of the facilities for tourists.
Diving is a popular pastime here due to the beautifully clear waters and abundance of aquatic life that surrounds Tremiti. A dive reserved for the more experienced – due to its great depths and strong currents – is the one organized at Punta Secca, on the Isle of Capraia.
Apart from diving, the islands also offer a mainland ripe for trekking and strolling: admire the intensity and variety of the local nature in all its wonders!
Alternatively, you can explore the islands on foot, admire the rugged landscapes or explore the coastal caves.
