The Bay of Sistiana

Nestled between the high white walls of the former quarry - which today is used by rock-climbers - and cliffs protected as part of the Natural Park of Duino, the bay of Sistiana opens up a breach in the limestone wall facing the sea at the edge of the Carso plateau. Once a renowned Hungarian resort, Sistiana has retained its vocation as a seaside resort and offers the opportunity to choose between up-market bathing establishments with private beaches and free-access, pebble beaches which are great for children as well. The bay is accessible by car or by boat thanks to the many jetties for mooring pleasure craft. There are kiosks and discos, restaurants and beach clubs which attract a wide cross-section of society to this rocky cove. From the careful swimmer with a young family to the carefree young diver, from the sportsman to the bon vivant, from the lover of a romantic walk among the splendors of nature to those dedicated to a frenetic nightlife, no-one will be left disappointed.

Point of interest
During the Second World War, by virtue of its strategic, protected and hidden position the bay served as a military base for German miniature submarines called Molch, hidden in a series of tunnels cut into the rock. One of these small submarines is still lying on the seabed of the bay while another is on display in the Civic Museum of War and Peace (Civico Museo di Guerra per la Pace) "Diego de Henriquez".
