Tourist destination info Valbandon

Valbandon is a tourist town located on the southern coast of Istria and the fact that it is very close to Pula and the “Bi Village” camp, this is the perfect destination for families with children. Also, the vicinity of the Brijuni National Park, consisting of 13 small and 2 large islands, make it an attractive tourist destination. Brijuni National Park is one of the most beautiful national phenomena where you can experience the fantastic cohesion of human, plant and animal life. Valbandon offers a special advantage for small children in its long pebble beaches which are ideal for children’s play, while the thick pine tree forest guarantees fresh air in the hot summer days. You can taste traditional Istrian cuisine in restaurants “Pineta Mare”, “Bi Village”, “Vala” and “Istarska Hiža”. Every year, Valbandon hosts a festivity called “Valbandon ispod črpinje” (“Valbandon under a Dutch oven”), where traditional Istrian meals are prepared (lamb, donkey, mushrooms, octopus, ray, various types of fish and others). There aren’t any places for evening entertainment in Valbandon so we recommend you visit Pula, Medulin and Rovinj for that purpose.

While in Pula, the largest city on the Istrian peninsula, do not miss the opportunity to visit its cultural monuments and taste the rich culinary offer of this region (Istrian prosciutto, truffles, etc.). Experience Roman architecture and view the amphitheater, the triumphal arch of the Sergijans, the gates of Hercules, the Lowe Gate, Augustus’ temple, the small Roman theatre in the center of the city, the Forum, the city center and many others.

Medulin is a place with a long coastline. A town that previously lived from fishing is now a modern tourism center. This town has completely adjusted to tourism and can provide its guests with a dynamic and content rich vacation. Sports and recreation lovers can enjoy scuba diving, soccer, cycling, golf, tennis, riding, sailing , windsurfing and kitesurfing. Medulin has some of the most beautiful sand, pebble and rocky beaches in Istria.

Rovinj is a small city located on the western coast of Istria. It is famous for its historical landmarks, of which we emphasize the following: Old Town, City Walls and Gates, Church of St. Euphemia, Baptistry of the Holy Trinity, Franciscan Monastery, and the castle on the island of St. Andrew. Apart from its historical landmarks, Rovinj is rich with natural beauty, as well. Be sure to visit sights such as Limska Draga, the Rovinj islands and coastal region, “Zlatni Rat” Forest Park, “Fantazija” quarry, “Palud” marsh and the Dvije Sestrice islands.
