Palud Wetlands and the Two Little Sisters Islands
In the Palud Cove, located eight kilometers southwest of Rovinj, there is the first, and so far, the only 'special ornithological reserve' in Istria. Ornithologists have recorded here more than 200 bird species. Since hunters are not allowed into the park, there are also a lot of pheasants, partridges and quails here. Various types of wild duck, water-hens, grebes and common snipes, garden warblers, golden orioles, woodpeckers, tawny pipits and shrieks live and nest here continuously.
Besides thick authentic forests with beautiful specimens of pubescent and holm oak, the northern part of the wetlands includes a real rainforest with huge willow trees. The gulls nest on the Two Little Sisters Islands (Dvije sestrice), whereas the Gustinja Cape is a unique 'forest vegetation reserve' due to the very precious holm oak.
