Moving away from the city and turning towards the sea, over the last thirty years, the inhabitants of nearby Pula-Pola have built a modern settlement in Pješcana Uvala, with private houses and family-run hotels. This bay boasts numerous restaurants, two of which are the leading ones in Croatia. They have been included in all gastronomic guides and have received the most prestigious tourist awards. Pješcana Uvala offers a true gastronomic experience.
One of the best equipped marinas in Croatia has been built nearby, in the direction of Veruda Bay. It provides 650 berths on 18 piers and 250 boat places on land. All piers are under video surveillance, the marina has a 30t crane, 25t hydraulic yard trailer, and boaters can also have Internet access.
