A quick boat ride away that will cost you 40 kunas, but a good alternative to the town beach in Rovinj. The whole island is managed by a hotel that has placed sun beds on every possible part around two islands and are asking 50kunas...More

We took the boat from Rovinj to the island. As me and my girlfriend are not big fans of mainstream, crowded beaches, we looked for the other side of the smaller island (not knowing that it was used by naturalists). I would totally recommend the...More

Fantastic place. A mix of entertainment (castle in the water, volley, surf, banana boat etc) or nature (if you just walk away 10 min from the main beach you my be totally alone on the rocks). Good service to arrive and back. A good stay

When visiting Croatia, the town of Rovinj is a must see location. It’s a nice, little place, great for recreation and superb food. You should visit the old town of Rovinj, with its narrow lanes and a beautiful church with an amazing panoramic view of...More
