Vrsar is a pretty little town located on the west coast of Istria. This former fishing village has been settled since prehistoric times. Over the years, Vrsar has been slowly expanding, developing from a tiny hillside settlement into a much livelier coastal town and today boasts an appealing mix of beautiful beaches, an upmarket marina, top-quality restaurants and much more.
From hidden coves to sandy bars, Vrsar is home to diverse and beautiful beaches. One of the best beaches in the area is Belvedere Beach, a pebbly beach with facilities including parasol hire. This pretty beach has Blue Flag status, making it a great choice for families with young children.
Another popular beach is City Beach, which is just 500 metres from Vrsar’s centre. This pebbly beach is extremely well-facilitated with two restaurants, a sports centre, two beach bars, a park for children and a lift for disabled people.
After a lazy morning on the beach, heading to the town’s beautiful marina to watch the elegant boats bob up and down in the azure water would be a great way to spend an equally as lazy afternoon!
The marina is located to the north of the harbour and boasts a vast 200 berths in the sea and 40 berths on land. A café, restaurant and bar at the marina means visitors can watch the stylish boats whilst enjoying sipping on a refreshing drink or tucking into some tasty Istrian cuisine.
