The most beautiful gulf of the Slovenian Coast is the gulf of Portorož. In Summer days the sand beach becomes a rainbow of coloured umbrellas and deckchairs. Little ones build sand castles, children enjoy playing volley-ball and sailing, parents sunbathe. Tourist boats sail to short trips from the main pier. Nice restaurants, little shops and cafettarias with delicious coffee and ice-cream follow one after the other on the coastal promenade. At night hotels are illuminated with delicate Mediterranean colours and they offer guests several massages, beauty salons and thermal facilities.
