This dramatic natural phenomenon, the Limski Kanal carves a narrow channel into the heart of the Istrian peninsula. With densely forested cliffs rising straight up to on either side and calm, green crystal clear water below, it could well be mistaken for a Scandinavian fjord and was used as the location for “The Vikings” movie featuring Kirk Douglas.
Now a designated Marine Reserve for the purity of the water, it offers ideal conditions for the mussels and oysters that are farmed here. Its majesty can be enjoyed from a number of viewpoints from the road that clings to the landscape above or from the deck of a boat as you cruise its mirror-like waters. On the bank a couple of restaurants serve the catch of the day on their terraces to tourists and locals alike.
