Spas, boat excursions and other waterborne activities are Portorož specialities. Diving is possible, while guided snorkelling trips are also an excellent, easy way to explore the underwater marine environment.
Boating & Cruises
In summer, a couple of boats make runs from the main pier in Portorož to explore the immediate coastline, visiting various combinations of Piran, Izola and Koper, possibly including Strunjan or the saltpans at Sečovlje.
Full-day trips are offered in high season to Venice (by boat or bus) for around €70, and there are bus excursions to Slovenia's big-ticket attractions (Ljubljana, Bled, Postojna).
Stroll along the pier to see the offerings, or visit travel agencies like Go Portorož.
All the major hotels have wellness centres. If this is your cup of tea, don't miss the Lepa Vida Thalasso Spa at Sečovlje Salina Nature Park.
