I'm having trouble deciding where my "home base" should be in Istria, in other words, where I will book a small private room. I've been looking at Rabac or Rovinj so far. Being walking distance to a beach and restaurants is important for me. Also, I would like a place with good nightlife and things to do when the sun goes down.
On another note, I am wondering how easy it is to get from town to town by bus, or would it be best to rent a car to travel around?
