Hello traveller!

Are you ready to explore the nature of Istria, Unije and Cres? On this journey, experience the island lifestyle, take a walk through history and take a swim in the most interesting beaches of the adriatic. Embrace the wind in your hair and begin the trip!

You depart from the magical old city of Pula. 

This is the largest town in istria and is largely known for its historical sights ranging from ancient Roman monuments to Venetian towers to Austro-Hungarian villas. In its prime it was a city of culture, science and art. You can see festivals and happenings almost year round, and that’s why it’s a great place to come back to, it’s never the same. The Pula Film Festival, the Days of Antiquity, Outlook, Dimensions and countless others. Which one will you happen to catch?

Pula is more than its history. It is its people, its tradition and culture, its festivals and nightlife, its parks and squares, its old and young. So wave goodbye before you head on.

Now, let’s sail over to the heavenly little island of Unije. With dappled seas, pebbled beaches and cliffy shores. In its heart, a little fishing town. A quiet land, far from the rush of the urban world. 

Explore the coast and find your perfect beach without crowds or litter. See the farmland and the old town with locals living traditionally, but also with seaside restaurants and bars. Take a step into the life of the Medditeranean people as it was once lived, and explore the clear blue sea.

Your next stop is an interesting one. A lonely hidden gem among the cliffs of Cres, Lubenice beach is a sandy piece of paradise. This unique cove breaks the cliffy shores of Cres, resting under the hilltop village of Lubenice, with breathtaking views reaching all the way back to istria. 

Stop time, relax, swim, snorkel, and sunbathe in the cove shielded from the urban worlds. Breathe in the fresh air and smell the sea. Experience the Adriatic with all your senses. Leave your worries aside.

Last but not least, a visit to Cres town is in order! This is a relaxing seaside getaway with nice beaches, a lot of great restaurants and waterfront cafes. The traditional lifestyle of the local is visible from the very first step on the riva through the maze of narrow streets to the lovely town square, with an old Venetian tower and a museum. Seaside cafes and restaurants offer traditional delicacies and a few beach bars offer refreshment. It’s a short walk to quiet pebble beaches, relaxing and sunny, with the crystal clear sea present throughout the Adriatic.
