      Interesting to know:
      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 due to dinosaur tracks that can be found there!

      If the boat does not leave for Porer before 10 am due to no-show(s), safe disembarking on the islet of Porer cannot be guaranteed. In such cases, the boat might have to return to the starting point on the mainland in order to wait for more favorable weather conditions. Therefore, we suggest that you arrange the time of departure to and return from the islet with the person responsible for the transfer one day in advance since he/she is always well informed about the weather forecast. If the person responsible for the transfer decides it is too risky to disembark, he/she should be obeyed since disembarking in turbulent waters is not recommended.

      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, therefore 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.

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

      Details of the lighthouse:

      The 35 m 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 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 due to sunsets on Porer that 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 m 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 at different times of the day. Due to very strong winds during the day, we recommend windsurfing only to very experienced surfers.

      Return transfer is organized from Premantura by Captain Ivan Giotta and is charged an extra 100 EUR per apartment. Transfer to Porer takes place in the morning and takes 25 to 35 minutes, depending on weather conditions. In order to get to Premantura, take the Pula bypass (12 km) and follow the signs for Premantura and Pomer.

        Cool experience
        100 euro (round-trip) boat ride and we were on a private island/lighthouse! Awesome. Apartment was clean, lighthouse keeper kind and accommodating but doesn''t speak much English, weather was nice, kitchen had some basic cooking supplies. We brought a drone and took some cool pictures of us on this remote island.
        It is totally confusing about how to get to the island based on the instructions we were given. We called one of the numbers on our reservation form and one of them didn''t answer, and when we called the other one, we were told to go to a random restaurant on the mainland. I think the office was closed on that Sunday? When we got there, we found a boat taxi guy who had apparently been waiting for two hours (which we didn''t realize) for us, and when we went out to the island, the lighthouse keeper had no idea we were coming and had to put out sheets, etc. Both were incredibly accommodating and kind (boat taxi guy even drove us to the airport the next day after picking us up on time to come back) but it was super weird how disorganized the overall experience was. It would be nicer if they had some basic instructions about what to expect. Oh well, it was an adventure, and I suppose this is what you get when you want to be on an island.
