The beautiful camps of Northwestern Istria
Amazing surroundings and vistas are certainly an important part of Istria, especially along the shore. On the northernmost part of the shore region, you can find any kind beach you like: rock or pebble and lush vegetation with various Mediterranean plant and animal species, which is definitely a main draw of a good camp. The naturist camp Kanegra near Buje is especially known for its lovely beaches and has one of the most beautiful beaches in this part of Istria, which is not surprising since the camp is in one of the most impressive Istrian bays. Also, the camp offers a great view of the Piran bay. The Novigrad camp Mareda, which lies in an oak forest and stretches all the way to the sea, gives you the feeling of being one with nature. Here, camp visitors can also take a walk in one of the several vineyards surrounding the camp. Although made by human hands, the unique Eco Park introduces its guests to the traditional Istrian way of life, local customs and lush local vegetation – all good reasons for fans of camping, as well as families, to choose Umag park.
Most camps in this part of Istria include restaurants with quality offers of local delicacies and traditional food. You’ll find seafood specialties such as calamari, scallops or grilled sole. Although it’s often prepared very simply, the local fish has an exquisite taste due to spending most of its life in brackish water. Since Northwestern Istria is home to some of the best wines and live olive oil in the Mediterranean, camp guests should definitely make use of the nearby wineries and go for olive oil tastings. There are also camp souvenir shops where you can get tasty and fragrant mementos that will make your friends want to join you in Istria next year.
Events for campers
A good camp is not just location and quality accommodation but also additional content. Camps in this part of Istria offer various music and cuisine-based events, sports competitions, beauty pageants and children’s programs, ensuring that even those who aren’t fans of such events get caught up in the ambiance and good company and maybe make their first dance steps there.
