Secluded lighthouse on an islet near Pula. Ideal for a romantic getaway and civilization detox.
Porer lighthouse was built in 1833 in this islet that is a 80 m cliff, 2.5km away from the coast of Premantura. 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.
In a specific spot, you can swim, but you must be careful with the sea currents. The seabed around the islet of Porer with numerous sandbars and rock is very charming for all sub lovers. For strong currents and the fact that mix the cold currents with those warm, the sea around Porer represents an area extremely rich in fish, where you can find many species of fish (almost 90% of those living in the Adriatic).
Return transfer is organized from Meduli by skipper Siniša Milutinović 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 Medulin, take the Pula bypass (12 km) and follow the road signs.
Note: 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.
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 Mr. Giotta.
Before or after your holiday on Porer, we recommend a visit to the reserve nature (Cape of Kamenjak) where there are 530 species 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.
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!
