Positioned at the base of tree-filled Ucka Mountain in a seafront location, the town of Medveja is a nature lover's dream just outside of Opatija.
The town is immersed in the green of indigenous Mediterranean plant life, offering numerous walking and biking trails, ideal for the active vacationer. Also very family-friendly, Medveja rests on the Adriatic Sea and features a long pebble beach, one of the most beautiful sights in the Kvarner region.
A major draw to Medveja is the natural pebble beach, a rare view along the Adriatic Sea coastline. The beach was formed over time as the brook from Ucka Mountain flowed over the limestone karst, which was the original surface. The limestone eroded into smaller pieces which have been smoothed into the pebbles they are today by the sea water.
Surrounded by thick vegetation with plenty of fresh air, the most popular form of accommodation in Medveja is camping. Autocamp Medveja and Holiday Resort is situated at the foot of Mt. Ucka and very close to the sea.
Not only does it boast fully-equipped camping pitches, but premium mobile homes, private apartments, spacious bungalows and a seafront villa are also available. The accommodations take camping to a new level of comfort.
The campsite is also equipped with a sanitary block, guaranteeing sterile and clean atmosphere.
Numerous restaurants – including a pizzeria and an a la carte menu – and cafes will ensure your hunger and thirst will always be satisfied in Medveja.
Set at the base of Ucka Mountain and on the banks of Kvarner Bay, Medveja puts you right in the center of nature. Trails for biking and walking can be found throughout the area.
