Tremiti Islands one of the best Beaches Wordwilde

  1. Located in the Adriatic Sea, the Tremiti Islands of Italy sit just 22 nautical miles off of the Gargano Peninsula on the east coast of Italy. Parts of this island group today along with the Gargano Peninsula form the Gargano National Park. These islands, also known as the Pearls of the Apulian Adriatic Sea.
San Domino

Tremiti is from an ancient word for “tremors”, as these islands are all volcanic in origin. MRising out of the Adriatic Sea, they are surrounded by beautiful clear waters. Now a tourist destination, this group of five main islands and numerous crags peaking out of the water’s surface, has had a varied history including being the location of internment for both Julia the Younger, Augustus’ granddaughter during Roman times and for political prisoners of Mussolini in the 20th century.

Of the five main Tremiti Islands, San Domino, San Nicola, Caprara, Cretaccio, and Pianoso, only San Domino and San Nicola are inhabited. San Domino is the most visited today by tourists as this island has the only sand beach in the whole island group. San Domino is also a beautiful island, covered in vegetation including blooming myrtle, and geraniums. Although the largest of the Tremiti islands, San Domino can still be walked across in 20 minutes.

San Nicola is where the bulk of the population of the Tremiti Islands resides and has the only year round inhabited village, along with a monastery, once home to the monk Nicola, where his remains are buried. Legend states that anytime the remains were tried to be removed from the island a huge storm whipped up from sea foiling the attempt. San Nicola is a rough and craggy island with a wilder feel than San Domino. An extensive fortified castle and abbey form an impressive silhouette against the rocky cliffs, and are open to visitors to be explored.


On San Domino, choose from numerous picture-perfect coves such as Cala dello Spido on the west coast, sunbathe on the golden sand beach of Cala delle Arene or follow scenic tracks to find your own secluded cove, wandering past fragrant pine trees and hillsides covered in maquis sprinkled with rosemary and foxgloves.

The island can easily be crossed on foot in around two hours

No automobiles are allowed on the Tremiti, but the islands are small enough to be explored on foot. Small buses connect the port of San Domino with the town in the central part of the island.
The closest Italian mainland (20km/13 miles away) is Puglia’s Gargano promontory, where the towns of Vieste, Peschici, Manfredonia, and Rodi Garganico have ferry service in spring/summer to the Tremiti
