Lim Bay, Dvigrad, Zlatni rt near Rovinj, Istrian Spa, Raspadalica above Buzet, Vranjska Draga near the Učka Tunnel, a site near Pazin, at Vintijan near Pula and  near Rabac.

The climbing site of Vrsar, above the Lim Bay, which is sometimes called a fjord, owes its attraction to the fact that it rises above the sea.
