Welcome to Strunjan, an old salt-making village on the Slovenian Adriatic

Introducing Strunjan

Strunjan is a charming old salt-making village on Slovenian coast, located between the magnificent Venetian old town of Piran and the charming old fishing town of Izola. It lies in the bay of the same name, which is known as one of the sunniest places on the Adriatic with more than 2300 hours of sun a year. There’s a public beach and a rougher, more difficult to access beach within walking distance. It offers numerous possibilities for sports and leisure and there are lovely views of Piran, good walks, tennis courts and a mini golf playground.

In the village there are three hotels with renowned restaurants, as well as several taverns, all offering a variety of Mediterranean cuisine. Outdoor pools, summer baths and especially the well-acknowledged thermal spa are available too.

Places to stay in Slovenia

Much of the area is a nature reserve that lies along a 4 km stretch of Adriatic coast to the north of the village. The Strunjan Nature Reserve is the longest section of unspoilt coastline in the entire Gulf of Trieste. It gives us a pretty good idea of how our nature should look like.

The salt pans in the village are situated at the end of the bay. They were formed at a slightly raised flat land created by the Roja stream. They are the smallest and northernmost salt pans in Adriatic and were first mentioned in the statute of the town of Piran from year 1274.
