Riviera Medulin

Gently sloping, partially sandy beaches and cliffs, countless bays, dense forests and a turquoise sea - that is the Medulin Riviera, the southernmost of Istria's Rivieras. Despite being abundantly blessed with natural beauty, this part of Croatia is still relatively unknown compared to the other major tourist destinations on the west coast of Istria. In summer, however, this does not mean that the capital of Medulin and the pretty little seaside resorts do not bustle and seethe with life- most visitors are pretty well distributed on the rugged coast. The town of Medulin in the summer, although, is pretty busy with visitors. Visible from a distance and marked by the bright white twin towers of the Chiesa de Medulin, the town offers everything active vacationers and sunbathers could possibly desire. It is no wonder that top European athletes and football teams occasionally check into the hotel's well-equipped facilities for special trainings!

Moreover, on the southernmost point of the Istrian peninsula, snorkeling, swimming, sailing and scuba diving are a must on the agenda. The Cape Kamenjak right in front of Medulin gates is not only a popular diving and surfing spot, as well as venue for the annual Hallowind surfers meeting, but also a fantastically beautiful conservation area, which, among other things, has 20 different species of orchid. By the way: A visit to the southern part of Kamenjak is worth a visit even at night. In the evening, daring cliff divers plunge with torches in hand into the dark, glittering sea.

Situated at the entrance to the nature park is the idyllic Premantura that has less of the large unfamiliar hotels and more charming inns, apartments and some camping. Those spending the most beautiful weeks of the year here, should  experience the fast life in Medulin and try its extensive clubbing as well as appreciate the peace and quiet, unspoilt beaches and coves. Here you have the perfect opportunity to relax on a hike or bike ride. By the

By the way: The hidden coves also provide ideal conditions for a naturist holiday in Premantura, as well as in the surrounding resorts like Liznjan and Banjole.

The tranquil, terraced and sheltered location of Pjescana Uvala is a popular summer destination for Croats and is well-known for its marina and especially for its excellent cuisine. When it comes to marinas, the fishing village of Pomer has remained for the most part largely spared from the onslaught of tourist crowds. Luckily enough, it is possible to enjoy the summer festival held here annually, classical concerts and last but not least the authentic, delicious cuisine.

The fishing and seaside resort of Vinkuran has also retained its charm and its original beauty. Pine forests and beaches are all here for a relaxing vacation by the iridescent blue of the sea, overlooking the wonderful archipelago of Medulin and the countless white sails weaving through it in the summer months. By the way: Vinkuran is known for its quarries all over the country. The building material for the amphitheater in Pula comes from here. In the summer months you can come and meet the sculptor colonies who exhibit their work locally.
