Sunsail opens new base in Pula, Croatia

CroatiaSunsail is opening a new base in Pula, northern Croatia.  Sunsail’s third in Croatia alongside Kremik and Dubrovnik, it will open in May 2009 and offers sailors the opportunity to explore the most northern Croatian sailing area.

Noonsite, the popular sailing website (see below), says: "Croatia is one of the prime cruising destinations in the Mediterranean. It is an especially popular destination for Italian motor-boaters, particularly during August, and many marinas are full by mid afternoon."

Located on the Istrian Peninsula, which borders Slovenia and is close to Italy, the city of Pula is packed with museums and steeped in history, with traces of Byzantine, Venetian and Austrian cultures still evident in the city today.   Pula is also home to one of the world's largest Roman amphitheaters; certainly the most beautiful by its elegance.
