Any sandy beaches in Istria!!?

Hi all,

Does anyone know of any sandy beaches anywhere within easy (1-2 hours max) driving distance of Pula?

We want to see some of the area and are planning on hiring a car, will have kids in tow so a sandy beach would be nice if possible, from what I can see most of the coastline around Pula, Porec is stone..................??

thanks in anticipation.

I think that www.croatia-beaches.com should answer that question unless you sus that already and you are looking for insider information from local Croatians.

I am taking a wild guess but I would say that first (North-ish) pure sand (both towel place and the shallow sea bed) you will find at island of Rab

Rab is an island in the Quarner bay- Nort Adriatic approachable by ferry. There is a very big sandy beach called Rajska plaža

Ferry from Jablanac operates through out the year.

But during the season Rab can be reached from island Krk (Baska port) to Rab (Lopar port).

From Istria to Krk fastest way would be via bridge (at Kraljevica).

For those with vagabondo spirit there is a way to Krk via island Cres (Valbiska port)

Earlier was mentioned Medulin beach ...maybe it is a rel deal....I do not know for sure if is it good for the toddlers.

Should have mentioned baska! Great pebble beach there, with sand in some parts of the towel area and the shallow swimming area, not not completely.
