Travelling to Croatia from Trieste

Due to the price of flights to Trieste being significantly cheaper than flying into Croatia I decided to fly into Italy on a Sunday.

However can anyone recommend any good beach areas in Istria (rocky beaches are fine) and what would be the best mode of transport to get there?

EXACT dates.

There are various bus services from Trieste going into Slovenia and Croatia.



There are a number of more well known popular places.

Portoroz in Slovenia is the closest. Has a sandy beach area as well as more rugged coastline

Then on down to Umag, Porec and Rovinj in Croatia with the more gravelly/stony beach areas than sand

Just depends how far you wish to travel

Portoroz is always crowded, I recommend you to go in Croatian Istria, where you can find various beaches.

Triestelines offers also a daily boat service to Porec, but bus services are more frequent and cheaper.
