There are four restaurants and café/bar. The tourist trade is restricted mainly to bed and breakfast and private apartments rental. The neighbouring village of Medulin (less than 2 kilometres distant) has a much more extensive tourist trade with several hotels and a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants.

The principal town of the area is Pula some 7 kilometres away. Pula has several modern resort hotels, a historic town centre with a number of Roman monuments, including a well preserved first century amphitheatre (the sixth largest in the world), museums, a busy port and shipyard, extensive shopping and a colourful fruit and vegetable market. Day trips to areas of interest such as the islands of Brioni or to Venice, can be booked through local tourist offices.

The coastline in the area is mainly rocky but heavily indented with many sheltered bays, pebble beaches, spectacular headlands and, in Medulin bay, many small islands lying close inshore. The water is exceptionally clean and perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Most of the coastline around Liznjan is totally undeveloped and it is possible to find stretches of coastline, accessed by foot or along farm tracks which will be virtually deserted even in mid summer. Sandy beaches can be found in Medulin and on some of the small islands.
