12 suggested campsites
Whether you're a motorised camper, a pure camper or just a holidaymaker: the Gargano region is perfect for everyone. The spur of Italy hosts some of the most beautiful beaches on the coast, with its windy bays - perfect for surfers, kite surfers and windsurfers - caves and breath-taking coves and forests, ideal for trekking enthusiasts. Despite being a wild country where mother nature reigns, this area of Puglia is full of well-equipped facilities to satisfy any desire. Thanks to its many campsites and villages, Vieste is a great place to start exploring the Gargano region. First, a look at the Pizzomunno, a sea stack that dominates the Spiaggia del Castello, then on to the trabucchi - fishing huts turned into seaside restaurants - for a taste of Gargano cuisine.Other areas recommended for those looking for villages and campsites on the coast are Peschici and Rodi, or around the lakes of Lesina and Varano, overlooking the sea. Those who prefer the interior can visit the ancient village made famous by Padre Pio of Pietrelcina. But San Giovanni Rotondo also offers evocative scenery to lovers of unspoiled nature. From Monte Calvo, the highest peak on the promontory, you can admire an extraordinary panorama: the Tremiti Islands to the north, and the Gulf of Manfredonia to the south.Now that you know all about the Gargano, you just have to find the campsite or village that's right for you!
