Vieste is the most famous seaside village in the Gargano area. The territory of Vieste has a coastline more than thirty kilometers long, bathed by a crystalline sea, where golden sandy beaches alternate with coves, shaded by fragrant pine trees, breathtaking cliffs, romantic islands, stunning caves, lovely little coves and secluded bays. A kind of wild natural beauty with Vieste nestled as a pearl which opens up to its visitors in a blaze of color. An ideal location for a quiet stopover. A huge monolith called Pizzomunno symbolizes the entrance to the city. The old town centre of Vieste mirrors the charm of the other towns of the Gargano promontory: white houses built with fragments of rocks, narrow streets, alleys and staircases converging in the central square. The castle and cathedral in the old town are worth a visit and we also recommend the panoramic views from the square of Piazzetta Petrone overlooking the sea up to the church of San Francesco with its massive bulwark and underlying trebuchet. The port of Vieste is important both for fishing and as a tourist spot, with daily departures to the Tremiti Islands and sea caves. The surrounding landscape is still characterized by olive and almond groves, Maritime Pine trees and, a little further away, oak woods. A beautiful street, bordered by gorses, leads to the cool tranquility of the Umbrian Forest. The beaches are enlivened by the spectacle of wind and kite-surfers, sport activities and sailing (thanks to the constant sea breeze). And of course, by beach volleyball tournaments!
10 nautical miles from the coast lies the archipelago of the Tremiti Islands, a protected marine reserve ideal for diving and snorkeling.
