WHY TO VISIT RED ISLAND ROVINJ..?

 

Red Island Rovinj | Premium boat tours Istria, Funtana, Dolphin tours Istria

Located south of the city of Rovinj, the Red Island (St. Andrew Island, Crveni otok) – is the biggest island of the Rovinj archipelago and represents an entity composed of 2 artificially connected islands: St. Andrew Island (Otok Sveti Andrija) and Maškin Island.

The island is uninhabited and has an area of 0.233 square kilometers. It’s lined up with the island of Maškin, Šturag, Saint Ivan, and Saint Ivan on the Horizon – what proves that once it was part of the mainland.

Today, Red Island is a popular touristic destination beacause it offers beautifull beaches, amazing nature and accommodation in the solely hotel on the island – Island Hotel Istra.

It is very interesting that many couples from all over the world has chosen Red Island as their wedding place so its fair to say that the Red Island has also became a popular wedding destination.

The known fact is that the first inhabitants were the Benedictine monks who came to the island in the 6th century and stayed till the 13th century.

It’s assumed that the Red Island was settled in prehistoric times.

During their stay they built a church and founded a monestary. Even today, there are visible remain of the church – the central part including the dome and the walls built in the shape of a Greek cross.

After the Benedictine monks, in the XV. century the Franciscans came to the island and reconstructed the monastery and the church. The Franciscans lived there till the arrival of the french in 1809., when they left the monastery and the island.

There was an oil mill and a cement factory on the island till 1890-91 when the Baron Georg von Huetterot (back in 1891.) bought the whole island.

He filled the island with soil, planted many different sorts of trees and rearranged the monastery into a family summerhouse or castle.

Baron Georg von Huetterot fulfilled the castle with artworks which remains are exposed in the town museum in Rovinj. The preserved section of the castle is today a small naval museum and can be visited by an arranged announcement.

The Huetterot descendants lived there till 1945 and then the island became a social property and repurposed for tourism. Hotel Istra was built In the 70ies as tourism reaches it’s full swing.

There is a Huetterot family mausoleum located on the Maskin Island, right on the location where once was sitauted an old Histrian gradina (fort).

Red Island offers mainly gravel-mixed stone beaches popularly called peebly beaches. Southern side of the island (near the Island Hotel Istra) features a peebly beach marked with a Blue flag mark which means that the quality of the sea on that specific beach is outstanding.

Also there are many beach facilities such as bars, restaurants, showers, dressing cabins, toilets, different rental facilities (rent a boat, rent a pedal,…) and children playgrounds. The gravelly and rocky beaches on the southern side give a special charm to the whole island.

On the the western side of Red Island you will find several higher rocks favorable for jumping into the sea. For FKK (nudists) fans there is also a beach intended for nudism.

In case You have a boat or You rented one, near the Island Hotel Istra there is a little dock featuring the possibility of boat mooring and achoring.

There is something about Red Island which causes a special feeling among its visitors. Along the whole islands there are numerous paths and walkways decorated with conifers, flowers and pines providing the visitor a special charm and scent of a true Mediterranean.

During the walk, the visitor can rest and sit on one of the many wooden beaches located throught the whole island.
