TREMITI ISLANDS: in summer the port of Punta Penna provides daily transfers from the abruzzese coast to the Tremiti Islands. The lush and uncontaminated nature, the crystal water, the colour variety of the depths, the charm of their history make the Tremiti Island a must destination, visitors keen on sea cannot resist. The wonderful coves Cala delle Arene, Cala degli Inglesi, Cala Matano on the St. Domino island can be reached easily on foot, in order to spend there whole wonderful days under the sun, swimming in very clear and colourful waters.
The Tremiti are not only a seaside resort. Visiting the island of St. Nicola means stepping into the past, recalling the fights of the warrior abbey, defended by the strong Fortress walls against the attacks of the Saracen and Dalmatian pirates.
NATIONAL PARKS: it is interesting to see how easy in a few minutes the hills and the countryside areas are reachable, and just in half a hour drive you can find yourself on the highest peaks of the Abruzzo’s Appenine.
