I have two days (two nights) to spend in the area of Rovinj with a rental car.
We are mainly looking for good beaches. Of course we want to see Rovinj but that's not the main thing. We also want to do a day/half day at Crveni Otok Island.
While looking at accommodation at Rovinj I noticed the prices are quite high (we are a young couple with no children looking for 22nd-24th of August). But we are with a car so I thought of maybe staying further away and paying for parking near the beaches.
My question is, what is best of out of this options:
1) Getting a more expensive place at the center of Rovinj and walking to the beach (is there a good beach close enough to walk)?
2) Staying on the outskirts of Rovinj and then paying for parking at Rovkinj/near-by beaches?
3) Staying in another place such as Varsr (I understand there are good beaches there) and driving one day for the trip to Crveni Otok?
If I could summarize my question: Is it necessary to stay in the center of Rovinj to get to the good beaches or can we stay further because we have a car?
Sorry for the confusion..
Thanks in advance!
