Vrsar

A picturesque fishing town with more than 2,000 years of rich historical heritage, Vrsar is a place of unique, serene beauty recognised by those seeking to relax on its clean coast, as well as those seeking excitement along its biking and hiking trails.

The people of Vrsar are mostly farmers, wine growers, fishermen and tourist hosts, not necessarily in that particular order however.

With an archipelago of 18 uninhabited islands just opposite the town and more than 190 permanent quay side berths in the marina, open all year round, Vrsar is a sailor`s paradise too, with aeronautic sports leaning in for the second place with parachuting, parasailing and panoramic flights in sports planes. Of course, there are many other options for an active holiday worth exploring around Vrsar, whether you are a walker, biker, swimmer or diver.

All of this is made possible by the gentle Mediterranean climate working hand in hand with a beautiful, indented coastline and the pristine nature that surrounds Vrsar.

Adventurers and wanderers will find Vrsar a perfect base for indepth exploration of Istria, maybe even Croatia, but whatever you do, you must visit the Lim Bay and then Rovinj.
