In an evening the harbour and promenade area is a good place to sit with a drink in your hand and admire the view. Many of the locals (and some tourists) like nothing better than to have an evening stroll. This is a good place just to sit and watch the world go by.There are a few restaurants, bars and ice creams parlours to sit in and relax. The...more

For sure take some shoes to the water because there are sharp stones and sea urchins. It is also handy for beaches because many people still prefer "taking" rather than "sharing" and you can find broken glass as well as cigarette ends on the beaches.
You can also buy very practical shoes on the main promenade, the price is around 50 KN.
We were advised to take the bus from Rabac up to old part of Labin (note: bus runs every two hours). After having a look round the old town and having a cooling beer the way back was down a track in the mountain. The start is near the bus stop at the bottom of old Labin. It's well signed so should find it easily. The descent can be steep and tricky so is not advised for anyone who has mobility difficulties. Take water as you can get hot even though you are shaded by trees.
It takes about an hour to do the full trip but is worth it for both the exercise and the scenery. Next time I fancy doing it the other way round, climb up, have several beers and then take the bus down!
Feeling in an energetic mood we decided to hire a pedalo and admire the views of the area from the water. We were pedalling out when we happened to find a rope to catch the blades on. Fortunately we found a knight in shining armour to come to our rescue! On the main beach you can hire the pedaloes for an hour. It isn't too expensive.more

There are too many favourite things to list. It's the whole package for me; the people, sights, amazing beaches, even the nightlife, I'm biased it's my home town :DI'd like to recommend a great cocktail bar though - Tropic. Reasonable prices, great service and even better view; what more could you ask for? :) Just being there and inhaling all of...more
The first port of call on a trip to Rabac would be to the ice cream parlour. I am afraid that if I have one great weakness it is ice cream. In Rabac I found my paradise with lots of different flavours on offer. Over the course of the hoilday I had to sample them all of course. As well as excelling in icecream they also served some of the best...more
