Sail with us along the rays of sunlight through Istria's azure coast plunging into picturesque Mediterranean motifs - secluded bays and beaches, boats that float on the surface of the crystal clear Adriatic Sea...

In the distance on the hill you can see Labin whose walls have protected its people for centuries, and at its foot smiles Rabac spreading along one of the most beautiful beaches in Istria. And then further, to the southernmost tip, Kamenjak, protecting the western coast where you will be welcomed by the ancient Pula. Look around and cherish the view of the city and its magnificent Arena before you let yourself be seduced by the pearls of Brijuni islands.

And when you regain your breath and continue on your way, with the vast blue horizon bringing you to Rovinj, let it spin you through its streets and embrace the Lim Channel. It will take a boat to invite you to join them with song and flavors of the Mediterranean takes you to Vrsar and then on to the beaches of Poreč. Say hello to the bathers and surfers, and if you encounter a buoy, know that somewhere in the silence of the azure divers search for other worlds..
