This is the Punta Corrente Forest Park which the Park Hotel backs right up against. It's a great combination of woodland trails following the curve of the rugged coast. A dedicated Eco cycling trail is in place here and the map and details are clearly displayed ( Photo 1). Apart from the hilly part of the Old Town, Rovinj's long, long harbour and surrounding areas are ideal for cycling. You can hire bikes all over town for a fairly reasonable price and every morning as we left our hotel, cyclists heading for the Forest Park, streamed past us on the marina . Despite my very best intentions and threatening to go without him, I could not persuade my other half to ride a bike and eventually the time drifted by and I'd missed ny opportunity. We walked here a lot though and found some excellent trails through the trees. At any point you can leave the forest and go carry on your walk at the edge of the sea. In summer this area is the most popular for swimming which was obvious from the flattened rocks and the shingle beach. Deep in the forest are two more large hotels but they are not visible at any point . This sort of planning seems to be what prevents Rovinj from turning into a resort. All development is out from the town and the concept of high rise just doesn't exist.
Equipment: There are bike hire outlets in several places in Rovinj but the one opposite the bus office is the one that I observed doing most business.
This is a map of bike track around the city, usally very usefull, with few important point that is good to know.
Equipment: any bicycle:)
