In this hilly landscape, the natural Mediterranean vegetation alternates with vineyards, olive groves, fields, as well as small oak and spruce forests, which often extend to the sea. The coastline of Porec, including its offshore islands, extends to 37 kilometers.

The mild Mediterranean climate ensures an average temperature of around 5 degrees Celsius even in winter and 24 degrees in the hottest month of August. The sea water quality in Istria is excellent and the bathing season here lasts from May to October.

The Istrian landscape is famous and popular for its colorful nature, green forests and numerous orchards. The coast is popular with boat charters because of its diversity and the many secluded and sheltered bays.
