Porec Introduction

Porec is located on a beautiful peninsula in Istria on the north-west coast of Croatia. There has been a settlement here for over two thousand years which has seen its share of troubles both in ancient times and in the recent past. Porec lies around a harbour which is sheltered from the sea by the small island of St. Nicholas. A canal separates the old town from the mainland and to the south of the town the tourist areas of Playa Laguna and Zeluna Playa are found. Porec has much to offer visitors particularly those who enjoy sporting activities. The beaches here are comprised of pebbles and shingle, the waters are crystal clear and a wide variety of water sports are offered. Modern accommodation provides excellent amenities, restaurants cater for all tastes and nightlife is lively. The warren of narrow cobbled streets in the old town are filled with wonderful buildings and churches as well as many small shops and pavement cafes. A Porec holiday offers much more than lazy days on the beach or lounging by the pool. Visitors can enjoy many sports both in and out of the water, sightseeing in the old town, visits to St. Nicholas Island and, since Venice lies just across the bay, a day trip to what is considered by many to be the most beautiful city in the world.
