A charming, small island, a stone's throw from Rovinj harbour, with a hotel complex. Free boat trip if staying at island's hotel or at the fabulous Adriatic hotel in Rovinj. Lovely coastal walk through pine forests, with great views back to Rovinj. Some nice little secluded beaches. On our walk around the island, we encountered no one else, but beware... More

If you want peace and quiet, go to this island. Go to the far side and enjoy swimming in the open sea. So clean. There are shady areas around as well as in full sun. There is a hotel there serving lunch, dinners and drinks with stunning views. One of my favourite places of Rovinj.

A lovely island to walk round. Lots of wildlife and little coves to sit in, a very pretty island. The hotel looks lovely too.

We took the a picnic and took the ferry over to the island and explored the area and found a great place to snorkel. Nice quiet getaway from the busy streets of the city.

This island is so quiet and tranquil. If you are not staying at the Island Hotel Katarina you can find a quiet spot to swim, read, visit the restaurant or enjoy the sun away from the business of Rovinj. Must arrive by boat.

You can easily get to Katarina Island outside the Adriatic Hotel or further along the harbour though if yo're staying at the Adriatic your get free boat tickets but it's only a few pounds and about 10 mins. The main hotel, built at the turn of the last century had pretty painted vaulted ceilings and a grand reception/entrance area. doors... More

The fee is nominal and you can spend as much time as you like as the ferry boat runs every hour from Old Town Rovinj to and back from Katarina Island. Katarina Island is beautiful. Nice resort hotel with patio seating with views of the Adriatic sea and their pool. Highly recommend!
