Pirates cave in Lim Bay

So called pirate's cave is supposedly associated with pirate Captain Morgan who traveled by his ship a long time ago trough Lim Bay. The cave is situated on the coast of Lim Bay (Limski Canal) - a wonderful region, densely covered with evergreen and deciduous trees, home to badgers, foxes, deer and wild boar. The Lim bay and valley is a peculiar geographic feature found near Rovinj and Vrsar on the western coast of Istria, Croatia, south of Porec. The name comes from the Latin limes for "limit", referring to the landform's position at the border of two Roman provinces (Dalmatia and Italia). The Lim valley (Limska draga or Limska dolina) is the 35 km long valley of the river Pazincica, which transforms into the Lim bay (Limski zaljev), a 10 kilometers long estuary. It is often called "Limski Fjord", or also "Lim fjord". Although the movie The Vikings starring Kirk Douglas was shot there in 1958, it is not a fjord but a ria, since it was not carved by a glacier but by the river eroding the ground on its way to the Adriatic Sea when the sea level was lower. Due to its narrow width it is also referred to as the Lim channel (Limski kanal). In the smal pirate's cave there is a bar where you can buy drinks and enyoj beutiful view:
