      Lighthouse summary:
      Welcome to a unique place where the sea meets the sky. A true mystical experience where you can reach the other side of the island in just a little bit more than a minute. The Porer lighthouse, situated on the same named rocky islet, was built in 1833, a mile and a half southwest from the southernmost cape of Istria - Kamenjak.On this dreamy island, you will witness the must scenic sunrises and sunsets, quiet nights, and amazing starry skies. The lighthouse is the ideal place to rediscover yourself, to remind yourself to a true silence and to be in symbiosis with nature. Immerse yourself in the sound of peace and enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets of your life.

      Details of the lighthouse:

      The 35 m lighthouse tower overlooks the rest of the stone building. It features 2 four-bed apartments, one with 2 double room and the other with a double bedroom and a one-room with bunk bed. The islet itself has three smaller berths and concrete yard.

      Beaches:

      Swimming is recommended at docking places. Even if you are an experienced swimmer, one must be cautious of going more than 50 m far from the shore due to strong currents. The lighthouse keeper will gladly tell you everything you need to pay attention to.

      Underwaters:
      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.

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.

      Wine & Dine
      When you are already in Prematura, don’t miss the traditional Istrian food and gourmet specialties. Basics of Istrian kitchen are cooked meals, a lot of spices, lots of wild plants, fish, and olive oil. Also wine is a very important ingredient in cooking. In the spring, chefs will surprise you with wild asparagus, in summer with seafood and in autumn they will reach for truffles. In winter tavernas will offer you minestrone soup, cabbage and fried sausages, and even more of Istrian traditional foods (seafood, Istrian pasta, Boskarin, smoked ham, truffles).

      Fun Facts
      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!

        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.
