Awash with cool beach resorts, quaint fishing villages and medieval hilltop towns, Istria, Croatia's lush green peninsula on the Adriatic coast, has been a popular holiday hotspot for decades.
Explore Istria from a Rabac Hotel
Overlooking Kvarner Bay on the eastern coast of Istria, the charming waterfront town of Rabac is known as the 'Pearl of Kvarner'. As the largest holiday resort on Istria's eastern coast, Rabac offers a wide variety of accommodation from cheap hotels and apartments to upscale resorts catering to all budgets.
Sea Views and Safe Beaches in a Charming Former Fishing Village
Dating back to the 17th century, Rabac was once a quaint fishermen's village. Today it’s a tourist destination boasting a sweep of white pebble beaches, safe, turquoise waters and vibrant waterfront bars. With most hotels and apartment resorts offering outdoor swimming pools, good-value restaurants and sweeping Adriatic views, it's easy to see why Rabac has become one of Istria's most popular holiday destinations.
What to See and Do When Visiting Rabac
If you want to explore the area further, take a boat trip over to the island of Cres or head up the hillside to Labin, a former mining town whose modern art galleries, cool cocktail bars and restaurants attract a young, hip crowd.
Another Rabac hotspot worth seeking out is Girandella Beach, a family-friendly beach just a 15-minute walk from Rabac's town centre. Alongside the beach bars, cafes and watersports on offer, it's host to the annual Rabac Summer Festival, a 24-hour house and techno music event.
Staying in Rabac with Family
Rabac has long been a popular destination for families, who are attracted by the great beaches, shallow, safe waters and child-friendly hotels and resorts. Dotted along the waterfront are plenty of places to refuel, from beach bars, cafes and ice cream parlours to lively cocktail bars and bustling seafood and pizza restaurants for when the sun sets.
