Yes, the drive can be interesting along the narrow dry-stone walled road but Lubenice is worth the visit (and even the drive is pretty entertaining). The view from Lubenice is stunning and the small village is fascinating. Even though we didn’t hike down to the...More

Amazing beach, not easily accessible though. At least 45 mins from Lubenice on rather difficult and steep terrain, dont try it with elderly or out-of-shape people. No amenities at the beach, so take everything with you, especially loads of drinking water

We did not go to the beach, but the views from Lubenice are stunning. You can see Pula on Istria and all the beautiful islands on the coastline. It’s worth the trip!

The road is long(ish), and narrow; expect an odd face-off with Italian RV driving in the middle of a road. The parking is straightup, free and plentiful, right at the village entrance. The views are nothing short of spectacular, not just of the photogenic stripe...More

This is an amazing beach which is accesible via a boat or a very steep and long walk. Highly recommended, amazing water and tranquility... If you can - come by boat...

without exaggeration, one of the best beach that I have ever seen it. The show repairs the fatigue to reach the beach.

The beach is nice, clean sea and pebble beach. But it is a very very difficult climb up and down. The terrain is hard and maybe a bit dangerous if you are wearing sandals. It took us almost an hour to climb down from Lubenice...More

Unfortunately, it was stormy the day my husband and I went so we didn't take the plunge to hike down to Lubenice Beach. However, the quaint little town was still a treat! We felt like we were transported back into time. The view was also...More
