Vignanotica is a very nice beach, easily accessible but a bit secluded so that you have a minimum level of services (bar, restrooms) but the beach is not overly crowded. Also, you can easily choose to rent "ombrelloni" or to go the the free beach.
The ladscape and the view is astonishing and the sea has a colour between green and blue. Watch out that this is not a sandy beach but has small stones.
One tip, although we liked Vignanotica, we prefer a smaller but hidden beach close to Pugnochiuso (~10km from Vignanotica towards Vieste). Not sure about the name of the beach but to get there, from Vignanotica, go to Vieste and then turn right when you find the Pugnochiuso sign. Keep going for ~5/6km, pass a resort and when you see a few cars parked on the side of a mountain road, park there and follow the trail. The trail is a bit steep but in 10minutes you will be in the beach we loved the most

Superb views, fascinating seeing the old Ermi built into the hillside but the climb down is not for the faint-hearted, nor the disabled.
With better mapping - either a tourist guide, better signposting or an overall map of the site, we would probably have discovered far more than we did. The Abbazia is currently undergoing restoration.

The beach with the elevator!! Outrageous, extra points for that! Picture perfect, gorgeous white cliffs, blue sea. BUT: it's a very narrow beach, feels a bit cramped, pebbles no sand, thus sun is gone early in the afternoon and basically it's the beach that belongs to the expensive hotel on top of the cliffs so very few facilities, just an overpriced snackbar with snooty staff.

Half the beauty of this sanctuary is the walk downstairs towards the cave. Suggestive and surprising setting for a sanctuary.

We've been in Mattinata in October 2015 and during our hikes/trailruns we were to this Baia several times. Every time we were alone or with 2 more people only. Wonderful Baia/beach. You should do this! Maybe with a hike from Mattinata (following Gargano hike marked blue) also.

Aptly named because of the massive first growth trees blocking the sun. It is the largest deciduous forest in Italy. As one climbs in altitude into the shade in Gargano, the temperature drops maybe 10 degrees C, and the vibe changes from beach to Nature. A member of our party was mobility impaired so we stuck with the vehicle, but there are scores of trails available. A caution, it will get very dark very early. If you aren't spending the night, leave early. Driving the twisting narrow roads in pitch black would be a challenge.

You could walk through this atmospheric part of Monte Sant'Angelo for ages and still find something new to impress you. The streets are still the narrow, twisting mediaeval places they were centuries ago and the place is full of narrow alleys and flights of steps, sharp corners and sudden magnificent views of the sea far below. There are several marked trails which cover the major points of interest and help you not to get lost, but we rather enjoyed just wandering around and eventually finding our way back.

I went to have breakfast here because of the big Illy sign outside. You cannot go wrong, the cappuccino was superb.

The scenic drive and the views alone would make this a destination. Throw In that it has history from the 6th century and a dominating strategic fortress from the Crusades and the history buff in me is inflamed. As in many Castles there is not much to see inside, and it is not curated. As others say let the stones do the talking. Take time to stroll the streets of this unspoiled medieval town. There is a large paid parking lot adjacent to the fortress.
