Paradise in your palm since 1906

Exotic plants fill the landscape, spaces full of art and relics excite the imagination, and local aromas and tastes delight the senses.

Palmižana’s richness comes from the Meneghello family which for over a hundred years has been devoted to creating a paradise of cultural tourism. Renowned for the absence of traffic and with extensive footpaths and trails, kids can run around safely, parents can relax with no worries, and lovers can discover hidden bays and crystal-clear sea. Even though in July and August the scene gets bustling and eventful, one can still find moments of tranquility just minutes away, in numerous bays and coves, easily reachable by boat or on foot. Palmižana is an ideal location for everyone, and even your pet can come along!
