The characteristic karst landscape of the Buje Region opens up towards the sea at the coast of Kanegra, shrouded in low Mediterranean vegetation and lush and spacious pine wood touching the beach of sea washed pebbles.

The village of Marušići originates probably from the 16th century when this area was settled by Slavs. The area was settled even earlier according to fragments of prehistoric pottery found in a nearby cave. The village consists of some thirty houses.

On the road to Grožnjan there is the village of Triban with its typical houses of white stone, balconies and exterior staircase and other elements of local architecture. Surrounded by the greenery, it looks like a fairytale.
