Tremiti islands Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The Tremiti Islands are an exceptionally isolated archipelago in the Adriatic Sea approximately 40 km east of Termoli and 20 km north of the Placencia peninsula (the "spur" on the east coast of central Italy). The islands can be classified as arid or semi-arid limestone bluffs broken up by sections of heavily wooded land. Each island is extremely small and the largest of these can be crossed on foot in a matter of less than two hours. Accessible only by boat from Termoli (1 hour) or Pescara (3 hours), the islands are a favorite summer weekend retreat for Italians from Pescara, Ancona, and Bari. Although the small beaches can be absolutely jammed with the day-trippers, late afternoons and early evenings are the perfect time to enjoy the sunset and relax on the sand.
