Abruzzo beaches stretch along 129 km of warm Adriatic coastline, 22 of which have been awarded Blue Flag Status in Teramo & Chieti provinces, always reassuring to know for anyone particularly with children swimming in its cooling waters.
Sweeping sandy beaches characterise the northern provinces of Abruzzo, and the best of the seaside towns are named the Sette Sorrelle (7 Sisters).
Pineto, one of our favourites liked and featuring by the poet Gabriele D’Annunzio.
The southern beaches’ piece de resistance is the old Romanesque fishing town of Vasto with its sandy marina, for those that prefer white pebbles underfoot, try its stunning Marine Park Punta Aderci, not too hard to walk on and beautiful against the green of the Adriatic Sea.
