Welcome to Portorož


Portorož’s beaches are relatively clean (if wall-to-wall with people in summer), and there are spas and wellness centres where you can take the waters or cover yourself in curative mud. The vast array of accommodation options makes Portorož a useful (if less atmospheric) fallback if everything’s full in Piran, which is only 4km up the road.
