Discovering the Gargano coast

The coast of Gargano it is certainly one of the most fascinating in the world, an enchanted landscape that it manages to offer us beaches of golden sand and villages overlooking the sea, high cliffs covered with Aleppo pines, ancient trebuchets and coastal towers.
The coast also hides the extraordinary sea ​​caves, so beautiful as to suggest that they are the fantastic homes of the sirens. Natural arches and stacks enrich the rich landscape even more bio-diversity, among brooms, pines, Mediterranean scrub and seagulls.
The best way to visit it is without a doubt on a boat .

Arco San Felice Vieste

Starting from the south of the Gargano, along the coastal road that leads from Mattinata to Vieste you will be able to immerse yourself in a timeless place, generous with unspoiled nature and breathtaking views. Passing Vieste and continuing towards Peschici the coast will become gentler, without losing its wild charm, alternating natural beauties with evidence of the relationship that this land has with the sea, a source of livelihood (as demonstrated by the ancient fishing tools, the trabucchi), but also of dangers (the coastal towers, built in the 500th century to counter the incursions of Saracen pirates, such as the infamous Dragut Rais). Continuing for Rhodes Garganico the bends will be less harsh, but the coast will continue to amaze you with its colors and its nature, taking you without too much effort to the oases rich in birdlife of the lakes of Lesina and Varano.
