Only a 20 minute boat ride from Rovinj is the wooded Crveni Otok or Red Island and what a gorgeous day we spent out there. I hadn’t been for years and was surprised when some locals told me that there was no more “FKK”, that is, that it was no longer an official naturist site. Red island is actually an island and an islet separated by a causeway. The main island isÂ Sv Andrija island a hub for water sports. The islet Maskin,Â is utterly quiet and peaceful. Paths run through the pines, making it beautiful for walking. Even though not an “official” naturist site, the secluded coves are perfect for getting that all-over tan. A pair of rubber shoes comes in handy for getting into the crystal-clear water.
We were delighted to eat at the one restaurant on the island. Lavanda served up perfectly respectable pasta, seafood and salad.
