resorts in 1 report: Valalta, Monsena & Koversada
HERE for German version
/ Die Deutsche Version HIER
the three resorts, Valalta is surely the best maintained
but also the most expensive one. Valalta has the
most varied beaches, a large marina, mini golf,
a large swimming pool, sauna and dance music in
the swimming pool area (if music disturbs you, you
should book closer to the bungalows area entrance).
For shopping in the supermarket you have to put
on some clothes (btw. supermarket is air-conditioned
and quite down-cooled), and in restaurants everyone
is naked, but many sit either on a towel, or cover
themselves with one. However, in the restaurant,
in which they serve breakfast and dinner (half-board),
you always have to be clothed. Valalta has its own
brewery and their beer is very popular. There are
different smaller restaurants, a fish restaurant,
pizzeria, grill etc....
Beside the bungalows there is an extensive camping
site.... At the arrival you'll be comfortably transported
(including luggage) with an electric road vehicle
to the bungalow.
The guests are mostly families, in the summer also
with children. Many of them spend their vacation
already 30 years there.
For the warm water at the camping site (showers
etc.) one must buy jetons... Otherwise, the resort
is very clean and very well maintained. A lot of
roofed car parking lots are available.
What bothers me a little bit is that there are very
few places with shade where you can lay down and
enjoy under the trees.
From Valalta one can take a marvelous sail with
its boat or inflatable dinghy into the Limfjord
or to Koversada or Monsena, or to Crveni Otok (The
Red Island) which also has a naturist beach.
Food in Valalta is very good, also in the big restaurant
where, for relatively small surcharge, half-board
is available. Directly at the beach there is a grill
and also two volleyball fields.
Valalta is a very good and very family oriented
As of 2005 Monsena is no longer naturist resort!
is visited more by younger people, the area is more
naturally preserved, and beside families many single
travelers are to be found there, also gays have
their part of the beach.
There is a small harbor with different water sport
facilities: wind surfing, jet skiing, banana, parasailing,
boat rental etc.... everything in the nude.
In the restaurant area one can sit naked. There
are also small shops where people usually enter
with some clothes on.
The apartments are particularly beautifully settled.
Majority of them have a view on the medieval small
town of Rovinj, which is only 5 minutes driving
from Monsena. In the town, there are numerous good
restaurants (those hidden and with fewer tourists
are the best) and a great open air market with daily
fresh fruit, vegetable, cheese etc.
When it comes to entertainment, Monsena has two
dance floors with music and animation. In the breakfast
restaurant you can't go naked. Breakfast is relatively
expensive, about 20 DM/ $US 9, for not too much
food (Valalta is favorable when it comes to food).
I have sailed often with my inflatable boat to Valata,
to eat over there...
The most beautiful bungalows are booked early. If
you don't care about heaving them, you don't have
to make reservations because something is always
available. The best time is July/August, when people
of different ages come. On weekends many locals
from Pula and surroundings come for swimming and
sunbathing. There is also a tennis field, a volleyball
field, beach chess etc....
Monsena is situated directly beside Rovinj, so many
excursion boats heading Limfjord (Lim channel),
with loud music on board, are passing by... also
many water jet skis are driving up and down, so
it can be sometimes irritating for those who seek
peace and quite at the beach.
What I like specially about this resort is that
there is a lot of pine trees to provide shade for
a nice nap, specially around midday. From a hedonistic
point of view, Monsena is surely the most friendly
resort, as long as you don't provoke others.
the three naturist resorts, Koversada is the largest
and Italians are the most represented guests. People
there are of mixed ages only during the peak of
the season, otherwise usually older guests. It is
actually the calmest resort.
There is a small island, which is attainable over
a bridge, where, between the pine trees, one can
stay only in tents. In the other part of the resort
there are apartments and villas. The resort has
tennis courts, a boccie course etc., however rather
fewer sport facilities than the other two resorts.
In the restaurant at the beach everyone sits naked.
Koversada is situated directly at the Limfjord (Lim
channel), opposite Valalta. In the Limfjord there
are many fish restaurants. Because Koversada is
situated north of the Limfjorde, not as many excursion
ships with loud music on board are passing by, as
in Monsena and Valata, which makes Koversada the
calmest Camp. In the evening many guests sail from
Koversada with their boats or inflatable boats to
Valalta, because one can eat there very well.
= the most beautiful and the cleanest resort, also
the most expensive, but very good meals in different
restaurants, also very good half-board and rich
breakfast, large supermarket, good beer, large marina,
large and beautiful swimming pool. Music and dancing

Monsena = very popular among younger people,
very low-priced, proximity to Rovinj, many water
sport facilites, small harbor, boat rental, view
of Rovinj, lots of shade under pine trees, long
walking paths along the beach up to lonelier places...
Koversada = largest resort, very calm, altogether
