Although there is so much to see and do in Rovinj (and Istria in general), one of the best things to do is to sit back and enjoy a day on the beach. The sparkling waters of the Adriatic Sea and the Dalmatian Coast should be embraced, and there are some fantastic beaches in Rovinj that you can visit. The best time to visit the beaches are in the summer months between June and September, but it’s worth noting that the months of July and August can get very busy.
Some of the more known beaches in Rovinj include Amarin Beach, Porton Biondi Beach and Borik Beach. These are all within walking distance of the main town and offer a range of facilities to make your beach day comfortable (nearby cafes, toilets, deck chair hires and showers). There are some beaches in Rovinj that are more obscure. Baluota Beach can be accessed from the center of the town, and offers views of the Church of St. Euphemia. This ‘beach’ is unique because it’s essentially a rocky bay. Although it isn’t the most comfortable, it offers a sun trap within walking distance from the main square.
