Walking paths & wide choice of beaches

Porec Croatia

Porec is probably the best known resort on the Istrian coast and a long standing favourite of visitors from Britain. 

Porec is perfect for people who don’t like hills and the old town is home to the UNESCO listed Basilica of Euphrasius with amazing golden mosaics, where there are frequent concerts, piazzas and beautiful gardens at almost every turn.

Porec is a regular winner of tourism awards for best kept resort. The town is replete with Roman history with parts of temples and floors beautifully preserved. 

Porec is also famous for ice cream shops and jewellers.  There’s a great beach club over on St Nikola island, just a five minute shuttle boat ride away from town.

Some quirky bars and eateries exist – we will just say “look out for the towers with rooftop terraces”.  An excellent daily market just off Trg J.Rakovca is the place to stock up on ingredients for picnics.

The island of Sveti (Saint) Nikola, just a five minute shuttle boat away, is a great place for sunbathing and swimming with the beach club Olivia offering sunbeds, cabanas and parasols (at a charge) in addition to the resort’s own pebble beaches set among pine woods and a toy train operates around the resort in the summer.
