Crveni otok (Red Island) beach
otok is a small island, 15 minutes by taxi boat from Rovinj.
There are approx. two boats an hour.
The Red Island is really a piece of earthly paradise, a
summary of everything astonishingly beautiful adorning Rovinj
and its fascinating surroundings. By a magical game of nature
- through a fanciful story - ennobled by the human hand,
this pearl surrounded by the sea put together two tied islets
- St. Andrea and Makin. The fact of more than 180
kinds of various plants growing there witnesses the richness
of the nature's gift.
The island is covered with lush pinewoods, it has idyllic
bays and a nice cape with rocky beaches.
On St. Andrea island Hotel
Sol Club Istra is located while the Maskin island is
reserved for naturists. St. Andrea offers many facilities
within the hotel, while Maskin has an attractive terrace
and al Carte restaurant, showers on the beach and volleyball
court. Unfortunately In 2002 a violent storm 2002 denuded
the island of almost all of its mature trees thus removing
most of the shade. It is therefore rather barren and many
people now take their sunshades and stands.
