Lake Lesina , situated in the north of Apulia between Tavoliere delle Puglie and the promontory of Gargano, is the ninth largest lake in Italy and the second largest in the southern part of the country. It is about 22 km long, an average of 2.4 km wide, and covers an area of 51.4 square kilometres.
Two canals, Acquarotta and Schiapparo, link it the lake to the Adriatic Sea, from which it is separated by a long hill known as Bosco Isola, between one and two kilometres in width and sixteen in length. Numerous streams provide the lake with a modest supply of fresh water.
