Vrsar Beaches – Sunny Shores for Play and Leisure

Vrsar abounds in beaches whose beauty springs from the charm of the coastal landscape where rocks and tiny pebbles mix.

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.

The beaches of Vrsar are well furnished and are maintained on a regular basis, hence the Blue Flags fluttering above them.

Blue Flags fly in the camping sites Orsera, Valkanela and Porto Sole, and in Holiday Resorts Belvedere and Koversada.
