Located near the city center and right next to a 5-star hotel, Mulini Beach can be reached on foot via the seafront promenade, past the marina and a wonderful forest park.
One of the best beaches in Rovinj, it’s covered in pebbles but it is also partially concreted. The latter is the part at which hotels place their deck chairs and umbrellas- which you can rent. There’s no entry fee to Mulini Beach.

Over the years, Lone Bay has become the most popular beach in Rovinj. It is located near many hotels, such as Park, Eden, Lone, and Monte Mulini. Moreover, the yacht marina is within easy walking distance.
The beaches in Lone Bay are ideal for children and seniors who can enjoy swimming in the calm waters of the bay, playing, and sunbathing. There are many sports and tourist facilities nearby, such as boats and surfboard rentals, jet skis as well as several snack bars.

Cuvi Bay is less than two miles from the center of Rovinj. The bay stretches for half a mile along the coast. In this coastal part, the beaches are very well-attended due to the gravel and pebbles and the easy access to the sea.
