Because of the conference I didn't have much time for sightseeing but the walk that I took on the island was very relaxing, Position of the hotel on the island is very good for business conferences as there is no dissipation...

I stayed in hotel-Istra for a business-conference several times now, always at the tail-end of the season. We think the hotel uses our business-conference to extend its own season a week or two. The island is lovely, quiet and a slightly isolated place. But the punctual hourly ferry will pick you up at the terminal or at the village-waterfront. Parking... More

The views were stunning especially when you walk around the islands (there are 2 separated by a concrete wall/bridge.
