Istria - a gorgeous area of the Mediterranean suitable for beginners. Istria is a peninsula in the Adriatic, the Croatian part perhaps being the most famous. Here you will encounter an incredible variety of landscapes. A good place to begin your trip is Pula, a lovely historic city and the largest in Istria. If visiting in July you will coincide with the Festival of Croatian Film. After Pula, you can head south towards Kvarner Bay where the island of Losinj is considered the pearl of the Adriatic - bursting with lavender, lemon and olive trees. The lively city of Mali Losinj is a magnet for visitors during the summer and offers a range of cultural activities from theatre to fine dining. Near Losinj there is the sunny island of Rab that has over 2400 hours of sunshine a year. You might also want to stop by the island of Krk to admire the diverse flora and fauna. Next, Cres promises a peaceful and relaxing stay. From Cres you can sail to Medulim, a well-known seaside resort on the southern tip of Istria that offers wonderful views of the famous blue water of the Adriatic. We suggest a detour through the park to Vrsar Brijuneninseln, and then finally back to base.
