Gargano coast from Peschici to Baia di Manacore

Peschici to Manacore bay

This part of coast that starts from the small coastal village of Peschici up to the bay of Manacore is characterized by a series of large and small bays, such as the Manaccora bay, the Turkish and the Gusmay bay and, also, the very beautiful and suggestive San Nicola bay. All of them have beautiful beaches with fine sand surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation and pine trees. They are also easily accessible by land and most of them have very well organised lidos with all the necessary services for bathing.
