Tremiti are a delightful archipelago of three islands (San Nicola, San Domino and Capraia), 36km offshore of the Gargano peninsula, in the Northern part of Apulia.

Its picturesque sight of raggedy cliffs, sandy coves and thick pine woods, surrounded by the glittering dark-blue fascinates the happy few travelers happy enough  to spend there a few days . Tremiti islands are a maritime reserve, and their surprisingly clear deep blue water make them a real wonder of nature for snorkeling and. diving enthusiasts.

Evocative sunsets can be admired from the Island of San Nicola where, at sunset, a soft rosy color paints the whole panorama.

Like many other awesome islands (such as Ponza and Procida), the islands were used for the internment of political prisoners during Benito Mussolini’s Fascist regime. Indeed, a good reason to fight for political freedom!

Ferry services from the mainland operate from Termoli, Foggia, Vieste, Rodi Garganico and Capoiale.In order to savour the islands’ tranquillity visit during the shoulder season, avoiding July and August, when the small islands receive a sometimes excessive quantity of tourists.
