The protected area of Irakli is located at 7 kilometers north of the village of Emona. It's remote from the large resorts and is mainly visited by people, who are looking to get in touch with the surrounding nature. You can see there the tents of many people, who prefer alternative tourism.
Irakli has been declared as a protected area on 6 May 1994 and I really hope that we will be smart enough to save this incredible place for the future. Especially because there aren't so many left of them.
The Vaya river stands between the Vaya beach, where some construction works are already in progress and the Irakly Beach. The last one hopefully will remain untouched. Sometimes I think that it will be much better if we just don't know that such places exists so they can survive :)
However I also need to say that, compared with the other resorts here at least you can still hear your own thoughts. If you have been to Sunny Beach or Sv. Vlas for example you know what I am talking about. :)
