Raša Bay I Croatia holiday accommodation

Croatia holiday accommodation in Raša Bay

The Raša is one of the most important rivers on the peninsula. The river arises in Potpićan at the adjoined confluence of small streams from the Učka Mountains. It flows into a partially deep valley to the south and empties into the beautiful Raša Bay. Although the river is only 23 kilometers long, it has an incredible natural ecosystem, and therefore attractive tours are available from your Croatia villas. The Raša winds pass through lush meadows, woods and steep mountainsides. Book a holiday home in this area of Istria and discover these romantic surroundings.

Exploring Raša Bay from your Croatia villas

The approach to the estuary is reachable from your accommodation in Pula or Medulin from street 66. In Barban, there is also a serpentine road leading to Raša Valley awaiting your discovery. Before Raša Bridge is a small road to the port of Bršica, on the left side of the valley. From here you have a beautiful view of the mouth of the river. Continue to the fishing village of Trget and Polje and in the harbour, you will be able to find some delicious seafood in the cosy restaurants there. A few kilometers away is the 539 metre mountain of Goli, where you can enjoy a hike before returning to your Croatia holiday homes.
