SUN & SALT & SEA for you

Are you ready for a salt experience?

You’ve just discovered a fantastic destination, where experiences matter most. Unique, fun, tasty, relaxing. Such that make your holidays simply wonderful and that you'll remember your whole life.

Of course, behind the scene there is a story. About salt, which is the foundation of this destination. Salt was here even before Portorož and Piran came into existence. In the sea, the air and then in the salt pans and today—in experiences.

Come anytime, we have activities for you 365 days a year. From sports activities in natural surroundings, relaxing in salt pans or in wellness centres, and bathing in the sea or in pools with sea or thermal water to culinary pampering with food from the sea and from Slovenian Istria. Discover all the places where salt hides and experience salt adventures. 

Culinary pampering & salt

Salt, which enhances flavour of every dish, is the most important spice. But sometimes salt is not only a spice. When it fuses with fish in the sea, for example. Or when, together with the southern wind, it caresses Istrian olive trees. It pairs wonderfully with homemade bread drizzled with quality olive oil. And it tastes great accompanied by a glass of exquisite locally produced wine.

In our cuisine everything starts and ends with salt. Come and taste the salt experience.

Outdoor activities & Salt

Slovenian Istria has a very charming nature. Everyone who experiences it falls in love with the picturesque hills, vineyards and woods on one side and the sea, beaches and magnificent cliffs on the other. Salt, which the sea generously shares with the air, is one more reason to be active and breathe in with full lungs. Namely, the air, permeated with negative ions, is beneficial for health and general well-being.
