Enjoy shows beneath the stars in the amazing Roman amphitheatre
Pula holidays will find you in the north of Croatia near the base of the Istrian Peninsula. Pula boasts a tremendous coastline that varies from long stretches of pebbled sand to rocky coves, secluded bays and attractive promenades.
Pula is also famous for its fabulous summer festivals and if you are lucky enough, or with a bit of careful planning, your holidays in Pula will coincide with a concert or show performed beneath the stars in the crumbling Roman amphitheatre. Nearby beaches such as Porec, Rovinj and Umag attract sun lovers to their pebbled sands with the resorts of Stoja and Verudela just to the south being particularly popular, while Premantura and Medulin are well known for being excellent wind surfing beaches.
Pula has a very well established natural harbour cradling calm waters ideal for sailing enthusiasts and a great place to start a guided tour of the breathtaking coastline where you can simply fall across secluded bays and little islands dotted along the coast. The Brijuni Islands are found in this area and have a spectacular National Park, archaeological site, Roman ruins and a stunning array of flora and fauna, something not to be missed on holidays in Pula.
