Kuje / Cuvi / Bura beach
the far south-east of Istria, among Mediterranean broom
vegetation lies fishing and agricultural village Liznjan
whose hilltop overlooks the Kvarner bay and the islands
of Cres and Lošinj. If you prefer diving through the sea
depths, the underwater coast along Marlera and partially
along the Kuja bay reveals one of the last meadows of flowering
Voga. There are many private
appartments for hire and rural tourism is also quite
common here. Try and find some of the cottages and you will
be soon convinced that life in the south Istria is beautiful.
/ Cuvi beach is located in Liznjan Marina. It is the
next village from Medulin, you go through the village, past
the Poli Ceha pub, past the school, past the Galiola restaurant
on the left, and then continue down to the sea. The beach
is grass leading onto the sea, with some trees offering
a shade. There is a paving-slab area, and the sea floor
is sandy. The beach is popular from July until the end of
August with a mix of families and young people, and a mixture
of nationalities as well.
There are pedaloes for hire, a speedboat for doughnuts,
wakeboarding and water-skiing. Kuji bay is also a popular
spot among windurfers because it is open to bura wind, but
not as much as in near Premantura.
is a popular Bura
Beach Bar, situated under the shade of a huge 200
year old Fig tree, and is constructed entirely of wood.
It was designed by 2 award-winning designers from London,
and has a contemporary feel. As a result they attract a
lot of the cool locals from Pula,
who make up the majority of their customers. However, those
tourists lucky enough to find them normally spend their
whole holiday there! They serve cocktails, beer and fresh
food from the grill and are really popular for lunch. At
night there are often events with bands and DJ's playing,
which can attract 100's of people.
popular beach is Marlera. Marlera promontory and
its beach are the most famous attractions of Liznjan. Reaching
the Marlera beach is simple, just take the road from Liznjan
to the south. The beach is facing south, and just across
there is a small island Levan with a beautiful sand beach.
The Island of Levan which is 10 minutes boat ride
from either Kuji Beach or Marlera - on it there is a bar
and restaurant, and a sandy beach! The only access to the
bar is by boat, so there are lots of jet-skis and speed
boats set along the two small jetties. It's all basic, but
another good thing to do in the area!
seeking privacy should try finding Below the Svetica
Hill beach. There are several small coves with stone/gravel
beaches. Your hosts can give you detailed explanations how
to come to these remote beaches, either by boat or taking
the macadam road.
