is a pleasant and popular summer resort on eastern coast
of Istria, not far from Labin, situated in a nice cove dominated
by the pebble beach and rich vegetation. North for the town,
hotel complex and beach are situated. The beach is combination
of sand and rocks and a good place to enter the sea with
your surfing equipment. Cars are not allowed all the way
to the beach, but if you say on the reception you are surfers,
they will pass you through. Interesting wind for surfing

windsurfing. When it blows, bura there is usually at about

It is a pleasant and warm southwestern wind reaching up
