Regional Nature Reserve of Punta dell’Acquabella

The Regional Nature Reserve of Punta dell’Acquabella is south of Ortona, on the edge of the Adriatic road 16, following the Moro River Canadian War Cemetery. Set up in 2007 to protect and revalue the Chieti coast, it is about 28 hectares wide from the port of Ortona and a hundred metres south of the green cliff of Punta Acquabella. The toponym describes the clearness of the waters that lap on the narrow pebbly and sandy shore.

The staff of VisitAbruzzo has joined some environmental associations in promoting the constitution of the National Park of Teatine Coast to protect that wonderful coastline from negligence, industrial and building speculations.
