Walking

Walking, trekking or simply strolling is the best way to get to know and see Poreč, its old city centre, the entire Riviera and stay in excellent physical shape.  An active holiday in contact with nature will positively affect your health and mood and is recommended for all ages.

Poreč is filled with walking paths and thanks to long promenades in the shade of pine trees all romantic strollers will find their place on benches along the sea stretching from the city centre to Plava Laguna.  If you have the strength you can continue your walk further along towards Zelena Laguna and discover Poreč’s idyllic lagoons and small coves.

For recreationists with insatiable spirits, a trail on the northern side of Poreč stretches from the recreational zone to Materada where you can walk in the fresh air while being caressed by a sea breeze.

Thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate you will surely not be alone as you head out on Poreč’s walking trails no matter the time of year, from early spring right up until the end of winter.

Almost the whole path by the sea (lungomare) is in shade of evergreen, and during the night most of the path is lit (except the part Sport center Mediteran - Istarska Hiza, but the shortcut right along side Hotel Mediteran is lit). During summer season along whole path there is a large number of places to refresh, sport centres on land and at sea (tennis , minigolf, table tennis, aquagun-water slide, etc.) Suitable for roller-skating (the land trail around peninsula Brulo can be avoided by paved shortcut through the woods).
