Terrific Tremiti

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of exploring a part of Italy that I had never seen before, despite it being only an hour or so from where I live. The place is question was the Tremiti Islands. For those of you who aren't too familiar with them, these islands are an archipelago in the Adriatic Sea, just north of the beautiful Gargano Peninsula. In Italian, 'tremiti' actually means tremors, which relates to the fact that this area has a history of earthquakes (luckily we didn't experience any!). The islands are a major tourist attraction, and you can get a ferry from the following locations: Termoli, Vieste, Rodi Garganico and Capoiale. We left from the latter, but instead of taking the ferry, had the pleasure of touring this wonderful islands on a private boat. There were 12 of us in total and the whole trip was simply amazing. Stunning weather, great company, and some of the most beautiful sea I have ever seen. I'll just let the photos do the talking now...

If you're thinking of visiting the islands, definitely try and get your hands on a private tour. As before mentioned, there are lots of ferries available, but these often drop you off on the main island, and there is only one main sandy beach.  A private boat may cost a little more, but if there is a group of you, it is definitely worth it. Oh and another thing; if you go in July or August? Take a family sized bottle of suncream, a hat, and more water than seems necessary. You will need it!
