There's enough here to keep you occupied for weeks, and Istria County vacation rentals make it incredibly easy to explore this stunning part of Croatia.

Things to do

Count on Istria County for rich history and spectacular olive oil

The peninsula has a fascinating past and Istria County vacation rentals near Pula make it easy to delve right in. The city's Museum Olei Histriae tells the story of olive growing in the region, while Arheoloski muzej Istre is filled with prehistoric and medieval artifacts. Pula's well-preserved Roman amphitheater definitely merits a look. Enter the Baredine Cave near Porec and swap the warm sun for a mystical world of stalagmites and stalactites. The Dalmatian Coast to the south is famous for picturesque islands such as Korcula and Hvar, but Istria has its own jewels, and the Brijuni Islands off the coast of Pula are certainly worth visiting.


Lounge like a lizard or fly like a bird in Istria

There's no denying Istria is a sun-seeker's paradise where you can sprawl on warm rocks and cool off in azure waters to your heart's content. Its rocky west coast is home to leading resorts such as Umag and Porec, both of which are within easy reach of popular beaches such as Kanegra and Aurora. Ready for some action? Kayaking, sailing, diving, and fishing are just some of the water-based activities on offer in Istria. Why not hire a mountain bike and discover Cape Kamenjak on 2 wheels? Perhaps head to the area around Buzet for hang gliding and a chance to take in Istria from a whole different perspective.


Find more space for your sunbed in June and September

Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, the Istrian peninsula tends to enjoy mild winters and warm, dry summers, with lots of sunshine throughout the year. If you're planning a summer visit then be sure to pack plenty of t-shirts and sunscreen, as temperatures typically nudge up into the low 80s. Expect daytime highs of around 50 degrees between December and February, while nighttime temperatures usually fall back into the high 20s. Consider traveling in June or September, either end of the peak summer holiday period, if you're after quieter beaches and the best deals on Istria County vacation rentals.
