Labin and Rabac are two towns located on the south eastern part of the Istria peninsula. This area has some of the best beaches in the region and wonderful nature to go hiking and biking. There are trails for all ages to explore and bikes can be rented easily once you arrive. Both towns are full of restaurants where you can indulge in the local Istria flavors as well as the great wine varieties. In the summer, you don’t want to miss the Istria Lifestyle nights where local producers gather along with music and a great time!
