Premantura is a little picturesque village with 241 inhabi-tant in the extreme south of Istria, 10 km southeast of Pula, which was already settled during the Bronze Age. The remains of rustic villas are evidence of the ancient Romans’ wise selection of Premantura as an ideal living space.
Situated in the central elevated part of the Kamenjak peninsula (declared a natural reserve because here grow 530 different types of plants, of which 20 types of orchid plants are protected) terminates in the west with the Medulin Bay. This peninsula is 9,5 km long and as wide as 1,5 km and stretches into the Adriatik Sea like a long arm. Kamenjak encircles a 30 km coastline with numerous little inlets and miniature beaches. This primeval beauty is augmented by small islands which arise from the crystalline blue-green sea.
Some of the coves (Lokva, Debeljak and particularly Portic) can serve as a shelter for boats and smaller vessels when the south-westerly wind blows. The western coast of Kamenjak is protected from the borawind and offer little steep beaches, particularly suited for expert swimmers and divers; instead the eastern coast offers not very deep beaches, suitable for children and no-swimmers. The best area for crab fishing is the east part of Premantura, on rocky coast.
A 34 m high lighthouse, Porer, constructed in the 1846, stands not far from Cape Kamenjak. It is famous for its rich offer of fish and seafood.
Premantura is an excellent place for the active tourist. Thanks to the strong winds blowing frequently in the late spring and early autumn, the village offers excellent surfing and sailing opportunities. Guests can furthermore take part in such sports as tennis, snorkeling, diving, mountainbike, trekking. You can hire small motorboats to reach many isolated beaches.
