Beaches

Sweeping sandy beaches characterise much of the Abruzzo coastline, all provide stunning vistas of the Adriatic Sea. Abruzzo is amongst the regions that have the highest numbers of Blue Flag beaches in all of Italy, 22 of these in the nearby Teramo & Chieti provinces alone. Blue flag status means that the water quality, safety, environmental management and services are all kept to a very high standard. This means that anyone planning to visit a beach in Abruzzo, particularly those with children, can feel safe and secure swimming in the Adriatics cooling waters.

With so many amazing beaches to choose from, it’s hard to decide which one to visit. With this in mind, we are going to highlight some of the best in the local province of Teramo.  These seven seaside towns are known as the Sette Sorelle (Seven Sisters).
