The Tremiti Islands are the only Italian archipelago in the Adriatic Sea and are located about 12 miles off the coast of the Gargano, in the north of Puglia. Also known as Diomedee, the Tremiti Islands represent a small corner of natural paradise.
Every year they attract thousands of tourists thanks to the clear sea, the clean seabed, the pleasant climate, the pure air, the still wild and uncontaminated nature, the bays and promontories, the low and sandy coasts, but also high and rocky with cliffs to overhanging the sea.
“The archipelago is made up of five islands: San Domino, San Nicola, Capraia, Cretaccio and Pianosa. San Domino, the largest island, is the most beautiful from a landscape and naturalistic point of view, covered as it is by a forest of Aleppo pines, so much so that it was once called the Garden of Paradise by the Benedictine monks.”.
Between a dip in crystal clear waters and a sunbath in one of the many romantic coves, there is so much to choose from. It looks like an exotic destination. Looking at the transparency of the seabed, with shades of light green, blue and turquoise, it is hardly believed that it is the Adriatic Sea.
Once the Tremiti were known as "Insulae Diomedeae ', from the name of the Greek hero of Homer buried here and still today, it is said, mourned by his traveling companions, transformed from Venus into the seabirds" diomedee ", with a very particular song and like the cry of a child.
