Banjole, a coastal village in the southern part of western Istria, 6 km southeast of Pula, located between the coves of Solin and Paltan. The coast is well indented, under pine forests. Main occupations include fishing, tourism, fish-processing industries and cultivation of oysters.
Banjole is a fishermen's village with a naturally protected harbour, whose inhabitants rely on the sea, so that fresh fish is an everyday gift. Almost every house offers a room or a furnished apartment. Accommodation is also possible in a boarding house or campsite.
A number of coves, peninsulas, natural beaches, sports and recreational facilities - tennis courts, walking and bike trails, renting of sailing and motor boats and other water sports - make Banjole a pleasant place to stay.
In the cove of Kanalic are the remains of the church of St. Nicholas (St. Mikula, 7th-8th c.), with a semicircular apse, whose width is that of the whole nave. Church walls used to be decorated with pilaster strips (lesenes).
