Medveja

According to Greek mythology, the sorceress Medea, the granddaughter of the sun god Helios and wife of the hero Jason, who went searching for the Golden Fleece with the Argonauts, found a beautiful beach while wandering which she could not resist. The place where she bathed in the crystal clear sea became famous across the Hellenic world and soon a new settlement emerged here. The Greeks left these coasts a long time ago and Medea remained only in memories and myths, but the beautiful beach and the place that was named after her – Medveja – today still attract the attention of every visitor to this area. During the day, the beach is ideal for leisure and relaxation, and in the evening it becomes a centre of entertainment with attractive after-beach parties. In addition to a wide range of private accommodation, Medveja also offers a modern campsite located next to the beach.
