The Limska draga fjord
With its emerald green sea and varied vegetation this is one of the most beautiful fjords on the Adriatic coast. Romuald's cave is situated here.
The Rovinj islands and mainland
These natural sights have been justly described as ‘outstanding scenic wonders,’ because of the pristine beauty of the indented coastline and its forests, consisting of holm oak and Alpine pine trees. This area ‘of outstanding natural beauty’ extends from St. Ivan promontory to Barbariga, including all the Rovinj islands and the mainland 500 metres from the shore line.
The ‘Zlatni rt’ Forest Park
Together with Dubrovnik's Trsteno park, the ‘Zlatni rt’ is the most important park on the Croatian side of the Adriatic. Apart from thousands of indigenous and domesticated plants, such as the groves of holm oaks and Alpine pines, the deep shade in this age-old park is also created by many foreign plants, such as the cedar, the pine and some ten species of cypress, which all contribute to the park's distinctly Mediterranean atmosphere.
The Palud marsh and the Dvije Sestrice Islands
The Palud marsh is a ‘special ornithological reserve.’ Its brackish water and lush vegetation attract many bird species, either for nesting or as a stop-over on the way to other destinations. The Dvije Sestrice (Two Sisters) islands are a nesting site for seagulls. Because of its thick holm oak forest the Gustinja promontory is regarded as ‘a forest vegetation reserve.’
The Fantasy Quarry
This is a geological spectacle acclaimed around the world. It is a unique example of the geological phenomena that formed the Karst, of its structure and of the forces that created this abandoned quarry.
