Publication date

We visited fully renovated Istra Camping Premium Resort in Funtana, Croatia. It is a one-of-a-kind campsite with rich offer and services for pampering all family members. Istra is home of the largest swimming pools with slides complex in Croatia.

One of the best in Europe in the first year already

Camping Istra Premium Resort has been awarded with 5 quality stars and has been one of the best campsites in Coratia. German auto-club ADAC awarded it with title Superplatz which is reserved for only the best in Europe - well arranged camping pitches, rich and quality services and spotless sanitary facilities. 

Campsite is managed by Valamar that is well known by their excellent campsites and hotels, but with Istra Premium Camping they have lifted the bar even higher. They have ensured greenery through the campsite, built new sanitary facilities and upgraded the cleaning system and standards to ensure safe camping also this season.

New is Valfresco Direct - that is online ordering and delivery service that brings you the freshly cooked dishes or local products directly to your camping pitch/mobile home or glamping tent. There are also two restaurants in the campsite.

Happiness of children on first place

Several services are designed and prepared for children. Istra offers large children's playground with wooden constructions, in reception different animation rooms are arranged for children of different age. There is as well amphitheater prepared for cinema, while in the evening performances for children and concerts are organised on square Piazza. Adventurous mini golf with Istra attractions should not be missed, there is inflatable aqua park and sports centre with windsurfing courses and equipment rental. 

Special experience is walk on island Skoljic that has been with bridge connected to the campsite. Last year thematic animation was there organized for children, but this season it is great location for bathing on solitary beaches.

Highlight of the offer is certainly swimming pool complex Aquamar that offer not only two swimming pools with sea water (and heated in case of cooler weather), but also three larger and three smaller slides, swimming pool for the youngest and another one for the ones in-between. Close by are as well wellness center and sport center with courts for beach volleyball, basketball, football, table tennis and adventure mini golf.

Camping on arranged camping pitches

Camping Istra Premium has completely newly arranged camping pitches, equipped with water and electricity. There are five camping pitches Bella Vista Mega Luxury Mare for the largest campers and caravans, offering private access to the beach, shower and barbecue area with wooden pergola.

We liked the most camping pitches Comfort on the right side of the campsite that are more shaded and offer splendid sunset views.

Sanitary facilities are excellent - all sanitary building are modern and fully equipped, this season additional measures for safety and security. 

Holders of the Avtokampi camping card are entitled to additional discount - 7.5% discount on camping on all camping pitches in periods 15.6. - 2.7. & 23.8. - 8.11. and 5% in periods 3.7. - 22.8.2020.

Family holidays in mobile homes

Left part of the camping is devoted to mobile homes that are set just by the pebble beach with aqua park.

Most exceptional are five Bella Vista Deluxe mobile homes with private pool, that are set on the top of hill offering splendid view across the sea. These are large mobile homes offering 80 m2 that impresses with modern equipment and large terrace with barbecue area.

Mobile homes Sunset have additionally private jacuzzi on terrace, ensuring private relaxation.
