The Istrian peninsula is crammed with picturesque walled old towns on the sea but few are as fetching as Novigrad. The core of the old town lies on a limestone peninsula that was once an island. Medieval walls topped with restored crenellated towers run along the port and the historic core is replete with 15th to 18th-century houses and palaces. Novigrad is similar to Rovinj but less visited.

A sightseeing highlight of Novigrad is the baroque Rigo Palace with a beautifully sculpted facade. The tip of the island is devoted to a park shaded with parasol pines and there's a lungomare--seaside promenade--that runs along the coast to the Novigrad marina, one of the most sheltered in the Adriatic. There are "beaches" in Novigrad but don't expect sand; they're concrete!

There is a delightful beach club to stretch out and relax on a lounge chair. Try Beach Club Macumba, a humble, unpretentious hangout.

If you're driving down from Slovenia, it would be hard to avoid Novigrad (see Novigrad on a map). It's an easy drive and good day trip from the Istrian towns Umag, Porec or Rovinj and there are a number of daily buses as well.
