Ližnjan – The Construction of a Golf Resort Has Begun
The construction of golf courses and resorts has begun on Marlera near Ližnjan, and it is expected that the entire resort will be completed in two years. The project was started by a famous former Croatian football player Dražen Ladić.

Marlera will, following the golf course at Crveni Vrh near Savudrija which is a part of Adriatic Kempinski Hotel, become the second professional golf course in Istria. Marlera will be a genuine golf resort with an elite hotel-apartment complex. According to the project plans, a five-star hotel as well as 80 apartments and 27 villas will be built on 16 acres, while the green areas will spread across 14 acres.

This is a project worth 150 million Euros and is being built in a fishing-agricultural village in the far southeast of Istria that overlooks the bay of Kvarner and the islands of Cres and Lošinj. This hidden corner of the blue sea and the coastline which plunges its rocks and gravel beaches into it will enable each visitor to discover the beauty of some 30 kilometers long, uninhabited coast. The picturesque port tells the story of the place that has always lived from the benefits of the sea. In addition to golf, Ližnjan offers to lovers of active holidays a center for horseback riding ‘Libora’ and for those with a passion for hunting there is a large hunting ground that in its dense oak forests hides wild rabbits, partridges, pheasants, deer and boars. Ližnjan and its seas are drawn on the maps of many windsurfers and divers who consider it one of the best and most beautiful locations for their passion. Other unique destinations are the coastal cycling routes through landscapes of exceptional beauty.

7000 year old archeological sites are witness to the fascinating history of Ližnjan, which was first mentioned in 1149 as Lisianum. There are the remains of Roman villas, pieces of amphoras and old sunken ships which are still found underwater, the old lighthouses, which still show the way to sea travelers, ancient churches and the typical Mediterranean charm of densely packed houses in village centers.

An undiscovered jewel is the island Levan, located in front of Ližnjan’s coastline with a beautiful sandy beach and two restaurants, which is ideal for those looking for adventure and an alternative seaside experience.
