took boat over at night just to look around and enjoy the city views. Looks like a nice place to stay...I think going at sunset might be the best.

Catherine island located five minutes from Rovinj, boat ride. It offers a choice of peaceful and beautiful beaches. If you choose to eat on the island, is quite expensive, as well as a return ticket for a boat.

We caught the boat from the harbour, leaves every hour and returns every half hour. You pay at reception 25 Kuna each. The path around the island is broken with the bricks sticking up, must be very wary where you walk, still worth a visit.
