Funtana is a small town with approx. 600 inhabitants in the central part of the western coast of Istria, about 6km south of Porec; elevation 26 m. It is situated on the low and fertile coast, which provides many farming opportunities (vineyards, olive-groves, citrus fruits, vegetables, wheat). The ground is covered with a thick layer of red soil which holds water. The indented low coast with a number of islands is an attractive landscape for the development of tourism. Today Funtana stretches on both sides of the road Porec - Vrsar. Mild Mediterranean climate even in the coldest month (January) insures average temperature of +5 °C (41 °F) and in warmest (August) +28 °C (82 °F). The sea is clean and bathing season starts in April and ends in October.

In the past, Funtana was famous for freshwater springs. More intensive development of tourism started in the 1960s, when in the attractive coastal area from Zelena Laguna (Green Lagoon) to Valkanela several campsites and a hotel village were built, as well as numerous rooms and suites in family houses. The chief occupation is renting of rooms. One of the specific features of the town is a great number of catering establishments - restaurants, inns, wine cellars, etc. Apart from the rich gastronomic offer, Funtana offers sports and recreational facilities - water sports like yachting, scuba diving, water ski; on shore tennis, football, miniature golf, boccia, bowling, and horse riding.
