In high season, you will find all kinds of attractions at Delfin Beach: jet skiing, parasailing and a water park cater for action and bars and snack bars provide you with food and drinks. In the off-season it is pleasantly quiet and tranquil.
Sandy Beach Lanterna (Val Adria Family Beach)
Another dream beach, a little north of Poreč, is the beautifully laid out Val Adria Sandy Family Beach, a magnificent white sandy beach in the beautiful holiday resort of Lanterna. Fantastic at this about 200 meters long bay is not only the fine white soft sand, but also the fantastic turquoise blue sea colors. Guests can rent sun loungers and parasols here, and those who like can treat themselves to a cool drink at the cosy beach bar. There are many more bathing spots, most of which are a bit quieter, close by, along the Lanterna coast lined by pine forests.
Tip: This bay is located in the famous Lanterna Premium Camping Resort and is especially popular with families with children. A really great beach to spend your holiday in Porec.
Bellevue Beach (Plava Laguna)
The beautiful Plava Laguna, i.e. the Blue Lagoon, is particularly idyllic and impresses with its many small bathing spots. This lagoon is located in the area around Poreč, in the Laguna Bellevue holiday complex and can of course also be used by non-hotel guests. Especially recommended is the beautiful Bellevue beach, which is located right below the Bellevue Apartments. It is a well-kept stone beach, where several stairs and entrances make it easy to get into the sea. The lush pine forest that lines the entire coast of the lagoon creates a wonderful ambience.
Pical Beach, also known as Parentino Beach, is located opposite the old town and is another beautiful city beach in Poreč. A clean pebble beach and great water quality await you here. The picturesque view of the city’s peninsula, which you can enjoy while sunbathing and swimming in the blue sea, is particularly beautiful.
Tip: The new Valamar Parentino Hotel is located just 150 meters from Pical Beach, which is especially popular for families with children.
Another beach gem is the picturesque Astra bay. It is located in the Zelena Laguna area and fascinates with a wonderful idyllic ambience. The dense pine forests provide shade here and you can also rent sun beds and umbrellas on the pebble beach. A bit to the north are wonderful natural bathing areas – perfect for those who appreciate peace and relaxation. The sea is uniquely beautiful here and also offers fantastic opportunities for snorkelers.
Parentium Beach (Zelena Laguna)
Another highlight among the best beaches in Poreč is the beautiful Parentium beach. This beautiful pebble beach is located in the Zelana Laguna, i.e. in the green lagoon, south of the city center and belongs to the 4-star Hotel Parentium of the same name. For many it is one of the most beautiful bathing spots around Porec! A visit offers you an extremely idyllic ambience, fantastic blue sea colors and wonderfully fragrant, shade-giving pine forests. The sea is crystal clear and just perfect for snorkeling and swimming.
Bijela Uvala Beach
The beach Bijela Uvala, which is located inside the same named Camping Uvala, is a very well-kept stone beach, which also offers small pebble bays as an entry into the sea. You can expect excellent water quality for an ultimate bathing experience and snorkeling is also possible here in the crystal-clear sea. There are very few natural shade spots along the beach, which especially sun-addicts appreciate.
Another one of the best beaches is the fantastic Polidor Beach. It lies between Porec and Funtana and delights its guests with three wonderful bathing bays, including a dog beach, a pebble bay and even a sandy beach, which is ideal for children. The sea is also fantastic here and glows in the most beautiful turquoise watercolors. If you visit this beach, you will not only enjoy a picturesque coastline, but also find the stylish Polidor beach bar, which is located directly on the beach and a real highlight in the Porec region!
Tip: Guests of the Polidor Family Camping Resort are offered a free shuttle service to the beach, which is only 800 meters away!
Val Marea Sandy Beach
Beautiful and another top beach in Poreč is the fabulous Val Marea Sandy Beach. This hotel beach of the Valamar Collection Marea Suites delights with powdered snow-white sand beach and wonderful sea colors. Families with children appreciate this sheltered bay, where the beach slopes very gently and thus offers a relaxing bathing experience. Also, the sea is crystal clear here and was therefore marked with the blue flag. Behind it is a large lawn where you can rent sun beds and umbrellas.
