"Rabac - A Beautiful Spot On The Adriatic" Rabac by cheekymarieh

Rabac Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 46 photos

Rabac is a coastal resort on the Istrian Peninsula. This was where I spent my first holiday unaccompanied by my parents and it is a spot that I have returned to several times since.

The resort is located around a scenic harbour area where you find fisherman working side by side with tourists wandering along the short promenade.

There is a pebble beach with watersports on offer (how can I forget getting a pedalo stuck on a rope holding buoys in place!) and also several little coves along the coastline in the area.

My memories of the area are pre-collapse of the former Yugoslavia. At the time photos of Tito were to be found in many shops, cafes and restaurants. On the last trip there though I noticed there decline in number. This was obviously a sign of things that were to come. We also saw some signs of unrest between the different ethnic groups within the area. Of course, this area is now safe to visit again and compared to many areas of Croatia it escaped relatively unscathed.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Some excellent little coves in which to relax
  • Cons:Pebbles instead of sand

    To sit there by the sea watching the world go by at this moment in time sounds blissful :-)

    Hey no night life tips!? Techno party is quite new - I don't think Rabac was popular night life destination in Istria when you were there. You must go again!!! Nice photos of Rabac - I want to go now...

    Croatia as a whole is a magical, enchanting place. Viewing this page just roots me deeper in my belief.
