As the camping season approaches, something I hope to take full advantage of this year, my heart calls out to the camps of Northwest Istria, a place I fell in love with at first sight. Why? Because it’s rare that anyone can find a peace of mind on the seaside. And because I love camping!
And I especially love camping in Northwest Istria, because it has something to offer for every camper out there. In the next few lines I will try to paint you a picture of its different kinds of camps for different kinds of tastes.
A family and sports camp
Sports, recreation and family vacation are what you will find at the CampingIN Stella Maris Umag camp. It’s got a great location, just two miles from the center of Umag and right next to the beach, and it’s got all the makings of a great holiday spot. If you’re on holiday with the kids, the camp offers a range of activities to keep them from getting bored – but how could a camp be boring anyway? Numerous playgrounds, kids’ pools and organized parties for kids of all ages make Stella Maris Resort (of which CampingIN Stella Maris Umag is a part) the ideal family destination! For those interested in sports, we recommend visiting the camp during the Croatian Open ATP tournament! Oh and yes, you could also learn to ride, surf or dive while there.
Total relaxation with the sounds of nature
If you happen to be going to Novigrad, you must spend a few days at the Sirena Camp. The fact that the camp is near the old town core doesn’t in any way take away from the peace of the pine forest that offers this camp the ideal setting for a holiday in the open. And if you happen to be passing by but don’t have camping equipment – fear not, Sirena Camp is proud to present the Holiday Homes cabins that offer the ideal combination of camping and the comfort of indoor accommodation. You will be able to dip your toes into the sea just a few meters from your cabin, and choose your own tranquil spot on the spacious beach right next to the camp. Had enough of the sun? Take advantage of the natural shade of the pines and enjoy the view.
An outdoor hotel
They don’t call the CampingIN Park Umag an outdoor hotel for nothing. This prestigious and multiply awarded camp (previously known as Ladin gaj), which has acquired the highest recognitions in the camping world, such as the Best Camping award, is the pride of Northwest Istria! The lush vegetation, the spacious plots of land, comfortable mobile houses on the beach, an eco park and a pirate ship make this camp a very special destination. The CampingIN Park Umag offers everything you would expect from a prestigious hotel – luxury, hospitability and an accommodating staff, comfortable accommodation, and that pleasant feeling of familiarity. You want to do a class of yoga or morning pilates, or just stretch your legs taking a stroll along the three-kilometer walking trail? No problem. Rent a bike with no hassle on the Park and Ride camp site and discover the beautiful surrounding attractions of Istria or get to know the local sites in a fun and educational park.
A stress-free camp vacation
The sea, the beach, the pine forest… The CampingIN Pineta Umag offers you an unforgettable view of the sea as the sun strives to keep you warm, struggling to get through the pine branches that keep you in the cool shade. The city noise is far behind you as you contemplate the open sea, considering whether it is still too hot to play a match of volleyball on the nearby sand court, or if you should perhaps wait for the sun to go down a little bit before you join a relaxing mini tournament of mini golf. The Savudrija Lighthouse – one of the biggest and oldest such edifices in Croatia – is also in the near vicinity, calling out to you to come visit and dedicate at least a little of your time to it. And time is on your side at CampingIN Pineta Umag! Definite recommendation for this year’s camping season!
