Just a short 40 minute car journey from Pula Airport, rent a car and explore the western coast of the Istrian peninsula.
Enjoy Some Time in Rovinj
If you are not a fan of stony beaches, why not try Kuvi Bay and Lone Bay which have been covered with fine gravel.
Journey to the Old Town and discover times past, including the remains of the city walls and gates. Visit the castle on the island of St. Andrija which was once a Benedictine Monastery. You can even stay here should you wish as it's now a hotel.
Try to grab yourself a bargain at the open air market. Local treats such as fresh olive oil, truffles and seafood are readily available. Visit, even if you simply go to soak up the atmosphere.
Things to See in the Local Area
Head out to Zlatni Rat, which is only a short drive away. There are a myriad of activities that you can engage in, including rock climbing or exploring the forest park. If you fancy relaxing for a while, laze on one of the many beaches and perhaps even go for a swim.
If you enjoy a spot of bird watching, then a visit to the Ornithological Park Palud should suit you down to the ground. Filled with beautiful and tranquil wetlands, take a stroll along the many trails in the park.
Journey to Porec which is home to some fantastic architecture. The mixture of buildings is rather unique, don’t miss the Pentagonal Tower or the Gothic House. There are also numerous beaches in this area when you’ve had enough of the town.
Drive down to Pula and view the array of Roman monuments here. The Roman amphitheatre is probably the most well-known, but don’t forget to visit the castle where you can soak up fabulous views over the area.
