For a long time, during the era of Tito, in the shadow of the Brioni Islands Fazana was closed to the commercial tourism and served only as the supply centre for Brioni Islands. In the 1980s Fazana slowly started to open up to tourism, after Brioni Islands were declared a National Park. In the past 10 years Fazana has seen tourism flourish and it reflected in the offer and the decoration of apartments. This small village, located 8 kilometers northwest of Pula, has always been known for its fishing tradition, fish processing, construction of smaller fishing boats, and glass processing.

The importance of the fishing tradition and particularly one type of fish - pilcharde, to the people of Fazana is visible in many events and celebrations: Fazana's Delights and Delicacies, Sea on the Table, Pilchard Festival, Things that Fishermen Know, Rhapsody in Blu, and other festivals that should be mentioned: Stars, Candles and Lanterns, Gastronomy Festival, Fazana tanac, Fazana's Twilights - classical music concerts, Tales from Fazana's Waterfront, Traditional Evenings at Fazana's Waterfront: Hand Made Fair and Istra Gourmet.

Pilchard Small Fishing Academy! What is especially interesting within the academy is the Fazana's School of salting pilchard. Even a park was named after the fish - Pilchard Park, made of sculptures dedicated to it. To come to Fazana means to take a walk along the waterfront or the promenade that extends from Fazana to Puntizela, to participate in one of the numerous events, try Istrian delicacies, enjoy malvazija, teran or istarska supa, taste olive oil or go for a swim on one of the Fazana beaches. It would be a shame to visit Fazana only to board the boat to the Brioni Islands. One should visit Brioni Islands and explore the charm of Fazana. Accommodation is available at Hotel Marina, in Villetta Phasiana, Camp Pineta, hostel Amfora or in private apartments in Fazana and its surroundings.
