Since now it is too late in order to do anything more time/energy consuming than uploading, let me propose two ready objects as Rätsels - tomorrow the decision if they have to remain.
I do not know whether they are difficult or not - or, maybe, they are easy for those who know, and difficult for those who do not know...
Well, I am wondering if the latter observation was ingenious and/or useful... Does not look the like: I should perhaps have better stuck with de declared proposal to upload, and nothing more!
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, this is the Bay of Bakar, or Baia di Búccari, which was the setting to a well-known war action - not a big one, indeed, a simple night attack to some Austrian ships docked in the harbour, but famous because the poet Gabriele d'Annunzio, who took part in it, dubbed it as «Beffa di Búccari».
The road that you see on the mountain flank is the Jadranska Magistrala, here at its first kms after Rijeka-Fiume.

How funny - when I looked at the picture, your portfolio preview offered me "Velebit". I have the strong feeling that this is the right place to start a more detailed search ...

Yes, Christoph is right and my first thought was right, too. I know this place from travelling through, it's quite stenchy there. Since there's a new highway the travelling situation got much better in this characteristic bay.

I know it too. I've been there about 15 years ago. It is not far from Italy.
It is a beautiful and quaint place.
