- tips - A popular day trip from Rovinj is a boat ride to the lovely Crveni Otok. Only 1900m long, the island includes two islets Sveti Andrija and MaSkin, which are conected by a causeway. From the 6th century, Sveti Andrija had a Benedictine monastery, later kept by the Franciscans. In the 19th century the island became the property of Baron Huterodt who transformed it into a luxuriantly woded park. Maskin is more woded since Sveti Andrija has been taken over by the Hotel Istra complex. There's an hour1y ferry to Crveni Otok, and frequent feries to nearby Katarina Island, which was forested by a Polish count in 1905 and now houses Hotel Katarina.
