Veruda Marina is a pleasant and well-organised marina situated just south of Pula on the Istrian peninsula, North Adriatic, Croatia. This well-developed touristic area is good base for further exploration. Three-thousand-year-old Pula is Istria's yachting mecca and attracts many sailing enthusiasts. A succession of purpose-built resorts are scattered along the shore, but it’s the long stretches of unspoiled rocky coast that give the area its character. The peninsula’s picturesque western coastline includes the archipelago of the Brijuni Islands National Park, one of Croatia's most beautiful National Parks and a sailors dream come true. Starting in Pula you can also sail over to the Kvarner Islands (Krk, Cres, Pag, Rab, Losinj) or cruise along the smaller and less crowded islands ( Unije, Ilovik, Susak, Silba, Premuda) These pretty islands boast clear waters, great bays for shelter, short distances between them and mostly ideal sailing conditions. You will see why Croatia is famous for its natural beauty.
