Fodor's Expert Review Baia delle Zagare

Litoranea Mattinata–Vieste, 17 km (10 miles) northeast of Mattinata, Mattinata, Apulia, 71030, Italy

Overlooking one of the Gargano Peninsula's loveliest bays, this secluded cluster of whitewashed buildings houses simply furnished modern rooms, some of which have balconies. A pair of elevators built into the cliff takes you down to a long, pebbly private beach. The hotel's restaurant is decent, but the menu is limited. Be careful when approaching on the road, as the gated entrance is easy to miss.
