This small fishing village and holiday location is situated on the western coast of Istria, between Vrsar and Porec. This part of the coast offers numerous bays and islands. The landscape is dominated by scenic hills and vineyards, cultivated fields, olive groves and fir and beech forests which stretch down to the sea. The mild Mediterranean climate has an average temperature of 5ºC in January, the coldest month of the year and with 24 ºC in August which is the warmest month of the year. The bathing season lasts from May to October. This mild climate and the proximity to continental Europe have had a strong and positive influence on the progress of tourism. The inhabitants of Funtana and its outskirts began intensively to take up tourism in the sixties, when the coast was extremely attractive. From then they started to built campsites, hotels and private accommodation that will satisfy all the guests who will spend their holidays there. Besides accommodation the inhabitants of Funtana offer numerous restaurants and the typical national "Konobas" with their excellent culinary specialities.
