Scenic drive on Gargano promontory visiting stunning beaches
A scenic drive along the most beautiful beaches of Gargano, the spur-like promontory of the boot shape Italy. It is an amazing little strip of land that offers visitors breathtaking views over the sea while staying surrounded by one of the most evocative Italian national parks. Along the coast and framed by the Mediterranean forest of Gargano you will find long, golden-soft-sandy beaches and steep coves and inlets bathed by the crystal clear turquoise sea. The Gargano promontory coastline is varied greatly and different sceneries follow each other: on this tour, you will discover the most awesome places hiding in this corner of Italy.

Ponente Rodi Garganico beach
- a long, sandy stretch kissed by the sun, perfect for wild tan lovers and because of the fresh wind blowing here often it is also an ideal place for riding the waves

Levante beach Rodi Garganico
- a heavenly beach of fine sand bathed by the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea

Bay of Calenella Vico del Gargano (pic n°6)
- one of the most famous bays in Gargano, well-known also in the world for its crystal clear waters

Zaiana Peschici beach
- set among the rocks and the lush Mediterranean vegetation facing onto the turquoise crystal clear waters: it is a perfect destination for those who love privacy since it also offers several sheltered crevices

Cala Lunga - Peschici
- embraced by two rocky strips marked with "trabucchi", (they are ancient wooden constructions used by the fishermen not only here but also along the entire Adriatic Cost), this beach features fine, golden sand and it is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in this Italian national park

Cala del Turco Peschici (pic n°3)
- it owes its name to the raids of the Turks who in the past centuries plundered the Italian coasts. It is hidden among the Mediterranean scrub and can be reached via a narrow path

Beach of Bescile Peschici

Cala della Sanguinaria Vieste (pic n°4)
- it is considered as one of the most beautiful beaches not only on Gargano promontory but throughout Italy

- the view that features the white "Faraglioni" (which are huge rocky stacks that rise from the sea) will leave you breathless

Mattinatella beach Mattinata
