best places to swim at Piran/Portoroz

Hi we are soon staying here for 3 days. Is there somewhere to swim in Piran (I believe there is not really a beach?) I wondered if it is stony do we therefore need beach shoes..?

We will have a car in the out of town car park, so is it better to take the bus between Piran and Portoroz if we want to go to the beach there. Is it a frequent service and how much is it please?

As we have a car are there any other good swimming spots we should check out outside these 2 towns?

thanks for any advice

Almost the entire coastal side of Piran is good for swimming. There is no need for water shoes. Bus between parking garage and Piran is free; from parking garage you are already in Bernardin, and only about 30 min walking to Portorož main beach. You can use one of frequent local buses a fee. You can walk from Piran toward Fiesa, there is rocky beach along the path, swim shoes are adviseable. Further away are beaches at Strunjan, Izola, Žusterna, Ankaran. On the other side of the bay is Savudrija but that is already Croatia.
