Things to do in Kavran
-Beach: The beaches of the nearby city of Medulin are picturesque and safe for swimming. The sands here are golden and warm, perfect for basking and the building of sand castles. Not far from Medulin is the resort town of Kazela which has lovely secluded beaches, including a separate beach for nudists.
-Cultural events: Another activity visitors can enjoy while they savour the comfort of a Kavran holiday villa is the annual open air film festival that goes down in Pula every summer. Holidaymakers can watch hot Hollywood productions or the more artistic European films while chattering in the cool sea breeze.
-National park: While in the Istria region, visitors will want to visit the Brijuni National Park. This collection of 14 small islands is known for its astounding natural beauty consisting of Holm oak forests, conifers and meadows. There are also some rare plant species local to the Istria region.
-Water sports: Most holiday homes in Kavran are not far from the Istrian coastline, which provides excellent conditions for a variety of water sports. Visitors can learn how to dive and get the gear to do so from the Dive Centre Shark.
-Historical sites: Istria is littered with emblems of Croatia’s rich history, including the Pula Arena, a coliseum originally constructed by the Romans between 27 BC and 68 AD. Far from its intended purpose, the structure now serves as a museum which contains olive and wine presses.
Weather in Kavran
Kavran’s weather is, like much of the rest of the Istrian Peninsula, mostly warm and dry; typically Mediterranean weather. For 6 months of the year temperatures in these parts are consistently above 20°C, starting in May when Kavran is discarding spring and entering summer. From then on temperatures steadily rise until their peak in August where they average about 29°C. As autumn gradually sets in temperatures drop to their teens as the year draws to a close. Most travellers therefore go seeking holiday accommodation in Kavran between May and September.
Travel to Kavran
Pula Airport is one of Croatia’s most important airports as it not only welcomes tourists on seasonal flights from all over Europe during the peak holiday season, it is designated as an alternative airport for parts of Slovenia and parts of eastern Italy. On arrival at this facility, travellers can board a taxi to Kavran, only 4 miles away, or use the fairly reliable public transport.
