Discover relaxing spas, magnificent beaches, an exciting nightlife and maritime heritage at the oceanfront resorts in Slovenia’s Port of Roses.
Among Slovenia’s most popular seaside resorts is Portorož on the Adriatic Coast. Charming red-roofed buildings look out into the azure-blue ocean from rolling green hillsides in this region. Portorož has a long history as a luxury getaway destination. Experience the buzz in the resort town’s local bar scene or relax at one of the spas that source water from natural thermal springs.
Treat yourself to a rejuvenating tour of Portorož’s wellness spas and indulge in a saltpan mud treatment or soak in the thermal springs.
Make your way to Portorož Beach, which is surrounded by resorts and hotels. Amble along the pier for excellent views of the sea and the picturesque shoreline. Swim in the clean water, relax on the sand and watch a stunning Adriatic sunset.
Stroll to one of the bars or nightclubs that line the foreshore. Try fresh seafood at a restaurant or sample local wines in palatial hotels and modern bars. Gambling is a popular pastime in the town’s three casinos.
To the north of the town are the 19th-century salt warehouses of Magazen, Grando and Monfort, some of which house historical exhibitions.
Continue north to the lively resort of Piran. Stroll through the narrow alleys of Piran Harbor and people-watch or spot boats sailing by from a bench on the shoreline promenade.
In the heart of the town, you’ll find Tartinijev Trg, Piran’s main plaza. Enjoy the spacious setting of this square, which is partly pedestrianized in summer. Gaze up at the statue of Giuseppe Tartini, the violinist and composer after whom the square is named.
Find Portorož in the Coast and Karst regions of western Slovenia. Ride one of the free shuttle buses that take passengers between Portorož, Piran and a selection of other resorts on the Adriatic Coast. Expect a mild climate with warm summers and cool winters.
Blend relaxing family trips to the beach with cultural discoveries in the pretty coastal towns of Portorož and Piran.
