Island Porer - Istria

Key Info

Porer lighthouse was built in 1833 on the islet of the same name, southwest of Istria's southernmost cape. The islet is an 80 metre cliff, 2.5 km from the mainland and the place of Premantura.

The 35 metre lighthouse tower is central with regards to the rest of the stone building. There are many beautiful bays and islets in the vicinity of Porer. The islet itself has three smaller berths. The stone edifice is a ground-floor building with a concrete yard and it has two four-bed apartments.

The islet is so small that it takes just over a minute to walk around it, nevertheless, the walk is magnificent because the sunsets on Porer are considered to be the most beautiful on the Adriatic. Trips to the island of Unije, known for its fabulous bays, or to the city of Pula can be arranged with Captain Ivan Giotta.

Before or after your holiday on Porer, we recommend a visit to the protected nature site Cape of Kamenjak where there are 530 specious of flora, of which 20 are orchids. Besides one endemic orchid, there are two more endemic plants and several other plants that are endangered on the cape. If you are looking for something different, make sure to visit the Safari bar that will impress you with its original interior and Robinson Crusoe-like hosts.

We recommend swimming at docking places. Currents around the islet are very strong all day long, therefore, we recommend that you do not swim over 50 metres from the islet's shores, even if you are an excellent swimmer. The lighthouse keeper will gladly tell you where the best swimming places are for different times of the day. Due to very strong winds during the day, we recommend windsurfing only to very experienced surfers.

Due to shallow areas and underwater cliffs, the underwaters of Porer are very popular with divers. There are strong currents and warm and cold layers of water around Porer. The waters around Porer are rich in fish and almost 90% of fish that can be found in the Adriatic can be caught near Porer.

How did the builders succeed in building the lighthouse on Porer in spite of the turbulent sea surrounding the islet? There are many ancient artifacts hidden in the sandy seabed that surrounds Porer. Numerous boats that sank due to tempests can be found in the shallow waters in the vicinity of Krsin, Fenoliga and Veliki Balkun. The islet of Fenoliga is unique and definitely worth visiting because of dinosaur tracks that can be found there.
