What people are saying about Pula Arena

Overall rating

4.3
(595 reviews)

The fish was incredibly tasty, so that's saying something coming from someone who never eats fish. Highly recommended and everyone was super nice! We also saw dolphins in the evening, and there was another big sighting on the way back, so we stopped again.

Awesome boat tour around and super awesome experience just exploring the island on your own. The drinks were unlimited and the food was delicious. We went in expecting a lot and our expectations were overachieved through every part of the experience.

This was just entry ticket. But made it easy to get into the arena. We arrived at 8:00am and we were the ONLY people in the Arena for the first 30 minutes. I highly recommend going to the Arena and getting there early to avoid the crowds.

This was the best experience of my life. Unlimited free wine. This was the best trip I have made for the price of the trip.

You get a very good organised excursion. you have to try it!!
