Umag Town
Town center

 

Umag Old Town
Old Umag

On the northwestern coast of Istria, Umag is a small town and port with a population of only 4900. (See Umag on a map of Istria).The tiny old town is on a peninsula between two bays and features typically Istrian winding streets and cozy squares. You can still see parts of the 14th-century town wall as well as an 18th-century baroque church.

Most visitors head to the bay north of town which has been developed for hotels. Despite the visitor numbers, hotels are well-spaced, separated by pine groves and woodsy paths.

If the pace gets too hectic in Umag, head to nearby Savudrija for a restful break.

Umag is most famous for its tennis tournament, the Croatia Open which attracts a number of the world's best clay court players.

Getting to Umag

Umag is the Istrian city easiest to reach from Italy and Slovenia; it's only 40km from Trieste and 150km from Ljubljana. In addition, there are summer ferries from Venice to Istrian ports from which you can take a bus or drive to Umag.

     Accommodation in Umag

Most accommodation in Umag is northwest of the town centre and along a sheltered bay lined with pine groves. The "beaches" are mostly slabs of smooth rock. The shallow waters are ideal for kids which is why Umag hotels cater to families above all. There are also plenty of activities such as badminton, table tennis, basketball and football fields, swimming pools and the like to burn up youthful energy.
