Marcus my favorite beach is in Novigrad which is 33km from Oprtalj. Once you get downhill to Livade @ 60km/h there is a 100kmph road all the way to the beach. I don't know which way you went really but in peak season I splash and some back within the hour.. But then that's me.. I used to live in Sydney - we are spoiled like that.. Come back and I'll show you.
Thanx guys - this is such a funny feedback as our biggest concern has always been that this pool heats up in August beyond the safe level as of course bacteria love the soup feel and normally we add cold water this time of the year to keep things in balance.. But ye with global warming we should be getting prepared for the fact that perhaps this structure is not sustainable. I hear people absolutely crying about the weather there this year while we had heaven in coastal Devon.. Thanks for your compliments and references. All the best, Carmen
