Vinkuran has the very nice Vinkuran bay. It is surrounded with park Soline and you can find places with some shade.
There are a couple of choices to make.
Your house for holiday, Contrada 45, is located in centre of Valbandon, but is also very close to a couple of beautiful beaches. Valbandon and Fažana are located over the national park Brijuni, so the quality of the sea is great.
Just 5 minutes of driving with a boat and you can see the wonderful Fratarski Island.
Fratarski Island is a little island infront of Vinkuran bay. The perfect place for the one day trip. A wonderful place for a nice walk and slipping in the shade. The beach bar on the spot also has an option if you'd like to make your own grill, you just have to take your own groceries with you.
If you like clear tirkiz water, and love stone beaches, then Lungo mare is just the perfect beach. Lungo mare is a 3 km long, stone beach with deep water, perfect place for jumping into the water. In the middle of the beach is the well known Gortan bay. In the bay there is an easy entrance to the water with pebbles. In the woods there is a beach bar for refreshment.
Children always love sand and to build castles out of it. One of the solutions for swimming is sandy beach in Medulin. This is the only big sand beach.
The specificity of the beach is that it is very hard to swim there. You will have to walk throw through the water for 250 m, and water will still be up to your hips. So it is fantasy for the children, and people who don't like deep water.
