    Rovinj - the most beautiful magical place. Along with other destinations, we have holidayed here yearly since 2017 (except for 2020 pandemic!) and never tire of wandering this fabulous town. Picturesque and charming with a friendly vibe. Our most recent visit being June 2024.

    In the Old Town, you are fooled into thinking you might be in Italy with the narrow alley ways and Venetian style buildings. There is something to see around every corner. Tucked away bars and restaurants to find, along with art galleries and shops displaying many hand made quality goods. Our favourite restaurant is "Mali Raj" (Little Oasis in English) serving outstanding steaks and seafood which is found high up through meandering streets. Our bar of choice is "Mediterraneo", where you can sit on the rocks or on low stools looking out to sea and the Istrian Island of Katerina.

    We have stayed in many private apartments within the Old Town, and all have been extensively modernised inside to offer excellent accommodation. The great thing about the Old Town is that the exteriors of the buildings cannot be altered to detract from their old charm.

    Bars and restaurants also line the waterfront in the harbour giving many other options to enjoy wonderful Croatian food and drink. There are no English bars in the town, and long may that continue.

    Away from the Old Town, there are many outstanding luxury hotels, of which we have stayed in too. The Hotel Lone is a superb choice. There are many beaches (cobbles) ;, those in front of the luxury hotels with loungers and parasols, and more secluded ones reached by leisurely walks or taking a bike ride.

    I could write endlessly about this idyllic town/resort which has not been influenced by the tourists but instead draws them into enjoying Rovinj just as it should be - Croatian.
    See you again in September Rovinj xx

    Nice seaside park with a rock climbing area and views of the sea. All bars and restaurants were closed.

    It costs €4 to climb the tower which does not take long. The stairs are very dodgy, some bowing when you step on them, others are very thin. You can see to the bottom between steps which is not good for those who are scared of heights.

    The view at the top is spectacular and worth the cost. Great 360 degree views of Rovinj.

    It would be good to see the € go towards replacing the stairs and making it safer. I can see an accident happening soon and it being closed which would be a shame

    We went for a one day trip with taxi boat and it was everything we hoped for. Clean, peaceful and wonderful. There is a few thing you could see on the island but I recomend to just enjoy clean blue sea and drink few coctails in beach bar. Mind body and soul reset !

    Incredibly beautiful beach, lovely and clean with a cute little bar/coffee shop. Great chilled out music in the bar, giving it an Ibiza chill out vibe. Will come back!

    This should be part of your wanderings in town, a long street with shopping and eating plus a lot of charm from the old structures.

    Dropped in on a whim whilst touring the area. The winemaker Juraj treated us to an amazing organic wine tasting experience.
    This included exquisite and unique boutique wines complimented with family produced cheeses and assorted meats.
    Highly recommended.
    Not normally a wine buff, but was extremely impressed by what was offered.
    If you’re in the area this is a must do!

    Easy boat ride across from Rovinj, rocky beaches, but organised sunbathing available. Nice place to spend the day

    The visit to Rino's farm was organised as part of a Yoga Retreat in Rovinj. So, we went with a group of people. The whole farm is biodynamic, which is rather impressive. We were invited to taste exquisite wine and olive oil and treated to a delicious vegetarian dinner. It was a great experience overall and the host was lovely.

    This is the waterfront area at the Old City and was very pretty even on a rainy day. One should take a walk along the water's edge, enjoy the old architecture and the views of the sea.
