Funtana

Funtana is lodged about halfway down the west coast of the Istrian peninsula spanning from the Green Lagoon (Zelena laguna) in the north-west to Valkanela Bay on the south-east. Funtana with its numerous bays, inlets and islands has one of the most indented coastlines in Istria.

Funtana is a green oasis of rare beauty, with its own sweet water springs, framed by the blue Adriatic.

A picturesque fishing town with special charm and beauty, unpretentious with just one stone palace and a church with a bell tower circled by rows of quiet stony little streets.

Funtana is also known for the large number of (fish) restaurants.

Funtana Fountains

Water means life. And Funtana, whose name comes from the Latin word fons or fonticus, meaning spring, is a place where you can hear the babble of water in its very name.

So what is the story of these springs?

Ask one of the town’s gentle inhabitants who will be happy to guide you along the main road to the nicely structured green area close to the sea.

Funtana - R&R

This is the place of Šterna and Perili – the famous water springs of Funtana, after which the town has been named. It is the meeting point of many paths, trodden for centuries by many thirsty, curious souls in need of refreshment.

Funtana has more springs than these two, but, right on the sea, they are the most important ones – the ones that blessed Funtana and made it such an important place. In antiquity an aqueduct led all the way to the Roman villa in Zelena laguna.

There were less happy times when there was a lack of water during which its value could be compared to that of gold, and people from the surrounding area would walk for hours to the springs of Funtana.

About beaches and boats

About beaches and boats

One can find various types of beaches in Vrsar. The beaches of the Belvedere Resort and the Valkanela Camping Site are covered in fine gravel, with some sections paved with Istrian limestone slabs. The area of Koversada has both gravel and rocky beaches, but there is also a specially furbished beach for the youngest. The area adjacent to the quarry and the Montraker Peninsula is a rocky beach offering breathtaking views of the old town.

Exceptionally beautiful beaches can be found on the Island of Sveti Juraj (Saint George), in the bay at the central part of the island, where the island is narrowest, and in some small points where sand has clustered to create inviting swimming and sunbathing spots.
