The Brijuni National Park consists of 14 islands, that stretch along the south-west coast of the Istrian peninsula, near Pula. Divers will be admired with the exceptionally rich, diverse and well preserved marine world of Brijuni National Park. As far as this area is under special protection since 1983, diving is possible only with authorized diving centers and in small group sizes. The diving options to explore are nearly endless: rocks and shoals, bays, tunnels, passages, caves, walls. Also there are some archaeological underwater sites to explore dated from Roman times, such as a part of the ancient complex of a sumptuous Roman villa from the first century. Marine life has very attractive flora and fauna.

When to go

Diving is possible all year round, though from May to September conditions are the best. The average sea temperature throughout the year is from 12-24C/53-75F.

What to see

Divers will spot untouched expanses of coral, sponges, urchins, algae, crustaceans, shellfish, and an abundance of crabs, lobsters. Also divers can see numerous populations of fish, such as large groupers, forkbeards dentexes, breams, blennies, wrasses, dolphins, and even the rare date -shell and pen- shell.
