Set on a turquoise bay, Medulin is a laid-back resort on the sun-drenched Istrian Peninsula. The resort is built around a picturesque harbour lined with atmospheric cafes, bars and seafood restaurants. Relax on the golden sand of Bijeca Beach or rent a car and day trip to rocky capes and centuries-old ruins.
Things to do in Medulin
Colourful umbrellas and sun loungers dot Bijeca Beach. The water is calm and shallow, making it ideal for families. Challenge your crew to a game of beach volleyball or rent a kayak and paddle out into the bay.
In the town centre, St Agnes Church will charm you with its twin bell towers and arched windows. At sunset, head down to the waterfront promenade to dine at a local seafood restaurant and browse colourful souvenir shops.
At just eight kilometres from Pula, Medulin is a great base for visiting the enchanting coastal city. Stroll around the picturesque harbour, visit the ancient Roman ruins and dine at upmarket restaurants. The Istrian Peninsula is famous for white truffles, which is featured in many local dishes.
As well as Pula, Medulin is ideally placed for day trips on the Istrian Peninsula. Explore hidden coves on Cape Kamenjak and watch daring locals fling themselves off clifftops and into the crystalline Adriatic Sea. Further north is the small town of Fazana, a gateway to Brijuni National Park. Boats depart from Fazana and take you to an offshore archipelago where you’ll find sugar-white beaches, centuries-old Roman villas and dinosaur footprints from the Cretaceous Period.
Getting around Medulin
Medulin is pedestrian-friendly and easy to get around on foot. Bikes are a fun and eco-friendly way to get around. Local buses run to Pula in around 40 minutes while international buses travel to Trieste, Venice, Milan and Slovenia. Rental cars offer the freedom to explore the Istrian Peninsula at your own pace.
