Fazana, a town, small port and fishermen's center in the south-western part of the western Istrian coast in the Fazana Strait. |
It is located on a low part of the coast, well protected from the sea by Brijuni Islands.
Gentle hills in the interior are under orchards, vineyards and olive-groves; the landscape is dominated by pine forests.
Fazana used to be the fishermen's port of the Fazana Strait.
Today it is known as a seaside resort and the departure point of boats for Brijuni National Park.
|The town entered the history of tourism roughly at the same time as Brijuni, because it used to serve as the port of Brijuni.|
In the surroundings of Fazana there are many vineyards and orchards, which add to the picturesque aspect of this Mediterranean town.
This region was endowed with many small coves and peninsulas by nature, as well as natural beaches, and people added such features as tennis courts, hiking and bicycle paths, motor and sailboat rentals and other water sports.
