Splurge Into A Gallery Of Panorama Along The Slovenia Coast

Gift yourself with a beautiful and memorable vacation this year, in the luxury of the picturesque Slovenia Coast. The coast makes for a wonderful destination, along the Gulf of Trieste, constituting the northernmost region of the Adriatic Sea.

 

Slovenia's Seaside - Beautiful location, Lots of Fun

The 46 km long Slovene coast is situated in the northernmost part of the vast Mediterranean coast. The coast being at a stone's throw distance from the nearby big metro cities of Northern Italy, Trieste, Austria and the Slovenian mainland is easy to get to by cheap flights. It is a total urban constitution, with many small and medium-sized hotels, inns and fine Italian restaurants.

The Wondrous Climatic Conditions

The ace factor that pulls in the maximum crowd to the Slovenia coast is its lovely climatic condition. The weather in the region remains mild throughout the year, with much less rainfall and a moderate summer and winter season. Find out more about weather and climate in other Slovenian regions.

Though Slovenia stands for a "small" seaside state, yet the place is laden with an abundance of wonderful things to look out for.

The road winding along the coast conects he five main seaside towns, Koper, Izola, Strunjan, Piran and Portoroz so visiting all of them by car is a breeze. There's also a train service between Koper and the capital, Ljubljana (takes about 2 and 1/4 hours).

One of the things I like best in Slovenia is its compactness and versatility. One day I'm up in the Slovenian mountains hiking, or rafting on Sava Dolinka and the next day I'm enjoying the colourful scenery the last rays of the sun paint on the sky and the sea.

Considering the short distances and relatively flat paths exploring the area by bike is a very good idea. The scenic vista of the clear blue Adriatic sea, dotted with white sailboats and the backdrop of the lush green Mediterranean vegetation makes biking relaxing and fun in the fesh coastal breeze.

When to go?

Well, this a tough question to answer. During the main season form May to September the coastal resorts are packed with tourists, especially in July-August when school is out and families head for their summer vacation.

On the other hand weather is most favourable for bathing in the sea and lying on the sun in the tourist season. The Primorska Summer Festival hosting theathrical and dance performance also takes place in July and first half of August, too.

Since I don't really like crowd I prefer to visit the Slovenian coast either at the beginning of the high season (end of April-beginning of May) or at the end of it (end of September-beginning of October.

I might not be tempted to have a dip in the relatively cold sea but I'm not much of a swimmer anyway. You can paddle in the heated pools filled with seawater at one of the trendy spa and wellness resorts (Talasso Strunjan Spa Hotel or in the Salinera Wellness Resort).

Note that during off-season (October-April) most resturants, cafes, clubs tourist offices, shops, museums have much shorter opening times.

 

Besides the usual lazy beach fun the coastal area of Slovenia offers many other interesting and fun things to do that kep you busy on cold days. Roaming around the Slovenia coast will surely make you engrossed in the many fishing ports and aristocratic heritage of the historical place.
