Do you think you're going to the sea with a tent or caravan? Do you think that Italy is dear and its sea dirty, or has it discouraged Czechs overcrowded Croatia? I have an interesting tip for you. And that's how to spend your holiday in the campsite in Slovenia. There are several factors to this option. It is relatively close, virtually all the way to the sea, you will not drive from the highway, you can pay Euro and there is beautiful nature. In the Slovenian outback, the mountains and the main natural attractions such as Lake Bled you will find enough camps. There are also several of them near the sea. But we are looking for one that has a good rating, access to the beach and the children will not get bored there. After a long exploration of the Slovenian campsites on the short shore we chose Camping Belvedere near a picturesque town Izola.
As I have already outlined, the journey from Bohemia is quite simple here, and those who travel to Croatia could know it. In Slovenia, however, you are driving along the highway to the end of the Koper port and the direction of Izola. The resort is located on the spot in a magnificent view of about 2 km above the city, a short drive from the main road to Croatia. It is located in the pine forest, on the 100 of a cliff overlooking the sea in Strunjan Nature Park. The camp is not only a campground, but also a popular Hotel Belvedere, which offers other accommodation options as well bungalows and apartments.
On arrival, we parked in front of the hotel, where she also ordered a place in the camp at the reception desk. Here you will fill in the accommodation form, leave them passport numbers and other details and you will get a number on the tent and a residence card. And that's all we could choose to choose from, at your discretion, and park your car quietly in front of him. Actually, another important note. We could not connect the "memoirs" with electrical sockets because the connections are protected by a reduction that prevents their abuse by campsites who do not have a paid 220V supply. For this purpose, you will borrow a terminal at the reception desk for a refundable bail, which you will connect to the stream. But I recommend taking a sufficiently long wheel with a cable and el. sockets, because some slices may have a connection to 10 m. The campsite is about 200 m behind the hotel's resort. The closer part is on the left side of the two terraces under the pines. Here we unpack ours family tent we too. I would rather recommend this part for families with children. There are more connections to the 220 V and is also closer to the washrooms and toilets and also closer to the pool complex I will mention.
The second, larger section for camping is about 100 m on the right side of a small road. It is also terraced and situated in a magnificent olive grove. The washrooms located just off the exit of the first part of the camp are clean, modern, you can wash your laundry or buy ice in your drink or refrigerator box. Although Camping Belvedere advertises free Wi-fi, it is no longer available in the more sportible corners, and it is the strongest signal in the shower. This is the reason why there are groups of children and adults who control mails, weather, or social networks. As far as the possibilities of buying food in the area are concerned, here are possibilities a little limited. There is one stand where you can buy pastries, beer, milk, vegetables and other basic foods. But most of them have a car, so they can buy at a supermarket down in Izola. And at prices almost the same as in the Czech Republic. If you want to eat well, there is a nice Mediterranean restaurant with a breathtaking view of the city. Our secret tip is a small Grill just across the road where you can get fresh homemade burgers and salads at a reasonable price.
What is the biggest advantage over the other Slovenian campsites around is the swimming pool You will find a short walk from the entrance to the grounds. The fenced plot has an outdoor pool and several smaller paddling pools and caparty tanks. In the large pool, there is enough depth to jump, and even if strictly forbid, it's a jumping of frequent fun relish. Here is exactly what we liked in Slovenia. Austrian-German care for order and rules and classic Balkan convenience. The sailors look more into the cellphone than to yell someone. Here it is good to say that the entrance to the pool is charged and it is worth paying extra for the whole stay. At the reception, you can simply add a + BAZEN to the card with the camping number and spend the whole day in the water or on the sun loungers.
That would be a shame, for a bit below Belvedere Camping is one of the best beaches in Slovenia. It's called Bele Skale, something like White Rock, and you can reach it on a footpath, which is steeply sloping away from the moats. The creepy path will take you to the desperate sea in the shadow of the shrubbery after 15 minutes, for which the landlords are so happy to go. Since this beach can only be reached by this footpath, there is no head on the head. In addition, it is part of the Strunjan Nature Reserve, which protects marine fauna and flora, so even boats and boats can not be closer than 200 m from the brink. The water here is clean and the beach is made up of medium-sized pebbles. It is also possible to find a gradual entry into the water, but due to sharp cliffs I recommend the rubber boots in the water. Do not forget to take enough food and drink here because Bele Skale is a truly pure beach without any infrastructure. But here you can look like robinsons, and children can build shelters from driftwood and reed. In another part I will write some tips for other Slovenian beaches and attractions.
