Since ancient times, the 14 islands of Brijuni have stunned generations with their beauty; unsurprisingly, they are now a national park. Veli and Mali Brijun are the largest of the group. Apart from their beauty on land, the islands also have an interesting underwater seascape. Although the North Adriatic is shallower than the south, and visibility may be reduced, there are still wonders to be seen. For example, at the diving site at the Pt. Peneda lighthouse on the south point of Veli Brijun.
