The peninsula is covered with pine trees, mediterranean vegetation and with loads of beaches.

According to the legend, it was named after the German emperor Barbarossa - Otto - who during a sea battle in 1177 against the fleet of the Pope Alexander III tried to hide in a water cistern.

‘Salvo re’ (the saved king) becoming ‘Salvore’ or ‘Savudrija’.

The abundance of plants growing at the coast, such as laurel, palms, evergreens, oak, pine, cypress and olive trees combined with the high salt concentration in the sea keeps the air ‘clean’, a particular health benefit, making this an idyllic spot among the many on the Istria coast.

Along with a campsite and a hotel, holiday accommodation can also be found in private houses, bungalows, apartments and rooms with modern furnishings and conveniences along the whole coast of the Savudrija peninsula, at the very water’s edge or just a little further inland.

Cafes, bars and restaurants provide the catering, with regular night-time entertainment on the outdoor terrace, with DJs, live music, and not to forget the annual Miss Savudrija contest!

The whole coast is suitable for swimming, although most beaches are either, rock, concrete or grass.

The sea temperature ranges from 9°C in the winter to 26°C in August

There is a different wind blowing to each side of the peninsula: to the north, the ‘Bura’, and to the south, the ‘Yugo’, which can blow for a few days at a time building biggish waves, and on occasions, the westerly ‘Tramontana’ a bit of a hooley!

Typical wind speed in the summer is 10-20 mph nearly every day. If there is no wind at one side of peninsula, it’s just a short hop to the other side.

The weather in June, July and August is likely to be hot, sunny and settled, with bigger wind conditions in May, September, October and November.

The sheltered waters of the Ravna dolina lagoon makes an ideal spot for beginners and there is nearly always enough wind for novices to develope, making the Savudrija peninsula a great place for both the novice and the more experienced.
