Top Ten Italy Classic Adventures

Kayak the Tremiti Islands
By Valerio Diotto

An archipelago of five little islands lies off the coast near Gargano. The main island, San Domino, has a wonderful coast with fjords and caves to explore by kayak or in boats hired from local fishermen. The sea bottom is wonderful for diving; a Roman shipwreck lays 24 meters underwater off Zio Cesare Point. Beyond that, the "sea calf" cave hosted the last of the mediterranean seals. Inland, the island is covered with mediterranean bush, indian figs, and some olive trees. Boats make the two-hour journey to the islands daily from Vasto or Rodi.
