Characteristics

Description

Limski Kana is entered between Rt Kriz, located 2.4 miles NW of Rovinj, and Rt Sjole, 1 mile NNW.

The Lim bay and valley is a peculiar geographic feature found near Rovinj and Vrsar on the western coast of Istria, south of Porec, Croatia.

The Lim valley is the 35 km long valley of the river Pazincica, which transforms into the Lim bay, a 10 kilometer long estuary. It is often called "Limski Fjord", or also "Lim fjord". The Croats call it Limski zaljev or Limski kanal ("Lim Channel") and grow fish and oysters there.

Declared a nature reserve, the yachts do not have access. Valalta Marina, located at the entrance, is a naturist marina.
