If you interested in getting to the Brijuni islands from outside of the country, the nearest airport is Pula Airport. Pula Airport has good connections from the UK and elsewhere in Europe. See out Getting to Istria page for full details.

Getting to the Brijuni Islands

From Pula Airport, transfer to the main bus station in Pula, and then use a local bus to reach Fazana, which is 8km north of Pula.

The reason for going to Fazana is that there is only one way to reach Brijuni National Park from the mainland, which is a regular boat service from here to the island of Veliki Brijuni. Journey time is around 20 minutes.

Boats travel daily in both directions throughout the year, although there is a much higher frequency during the summer months.

You can view a schedule of boat sevices from the NP Brijuni website.

Alternatively, you can also visit the Brijuni islands by joining an organised tour from the mainland. Ask at a travel agency (or via a tourist office) in the town you are based in.

Getting to the other Brijuni islands

Unless you are lucky enough to have your own boat you are restricted to using one of the organised excursion boats (from Veliki Brijuni island) if you wish to visit some of the other islands that make up the Brijuni chain. A visit to Mali Brijuni is most popular.

Enquire about these excursions via the NP Brijuni website.
