An oasis of calm in a magical forest
Visit Golden Cape forest park. Also known as Punta Corrente, the Golden Cape is one of the most significant nature parks in northeast Adriatic. Only a 15-minute walk from the centre of Rovinj and spreading over an area of 52 hectares, the forest park hides a world of unbelievable diversity, numerous plant species and deep shade that provides cool shelter during long summer days.
The most significant park in the northeast Adriatic
Also known as Punta Corrente, this forest park is one of the most significant nature parks in northeast Adriatic. It includes thousands of domestic and foreign plant species. Himalayan cedars planted to create the shape of a six-pointed star, cypresses and stone pines, meadows surrounded by Douglas firs, and exotic solitary cypresses create an impressive and unique forest oasis.
The history of the park
The Golden Cape was first landscaped by count Johann Georg Hütterott at the end of the 19th century. His wife’s pavilion and the forest ranger’s house have remained in the forest park to this day. There are also remnants of a small shipyard, old docks, a quarry, a drystone wall and a large perimeter wall that marked the border of the Count’s property. The Golden Cape was pronounced nature’s rarity in 1948 and in 1961 it was included in the protected forest park category.
Things to do in the Golden Cape
The Golden Cape is an ideal destination for both enthusiasts and professional athletes alike. Activities range from walking, cycling, running, and exercising, and for those who want to feel an adrenaline rush, there’s also free climbing.
Take a swim in the crystal-clear sea during the summer days. Stone beaches are perfect for peaceful relaxation. Families with children can visit one of the many pebbly coves. Drop by one of our beach bars after your swim for refreshments.
