Offering a blue-green sea, rocky beaches and a laid-back vibe, the small fishing village of Premantura has stacks of Croatian appeal.

Go waterskiing or sailing, visit the historic St. Lovre Church or watch sun setting over Point Kamenjak. Feeling energetic? Why not take a hike through the Brijuni National Park. After dark, kick back in one of the buzzy waterfront restaurants and sample some tasty Croatian cuisine. It's what vacation memories are made of.

Things to do

Going Roman—Pula's amphitheater is a blast from the past

A 20-minute drive from many Premantura vacation rentals is the ancient Istrian town of Pula. The biggest draw is the town's 2nd-century BC Pula Arena, one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. Built in 27BC, when the city was the center of Roman rule, you can just imagine it teeming with gladiators. It's also the host of the impressive Pula Film Festival in July. If Roman's don't float your boat, then visit the Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria, also in Pula, which is housed in a 17th-century Venetian fortress.


Hop to it! Premantura is perfect for beach hopping

Premantura is very much a seaside town and life generally revolves around its many beaches. But don't come expecting to build sandcastles, as Croatia is not known for its sandy coves. Instead, most beaches have smooth white pebbles, lapped by the clearest blue seas. Stupce Beach is a favorite with locals, while Skoljic Bay attracts watersports enthusiasts with its clear, calm waters, perfect for kayaking and windsurfing. If you prefer a little culture to beach hopping, then maybe explore the rest of the peninsula with a day trip to historic Pula.


Summer sizzles and spring drizzles in Istria

Like much of Croatia, Istria is blessed with a delicious Mediterranean climate, offering hot, dry summers and short mild winters as the general rule. July and August see the highest temperatures when the mercury can hit 90 degrees and over. Peak season is in the summertime, when Premantura vacation rentals get snapped up in advance. For the best choice, visit in spring or fall, when the sun still shines and the temperatures are a balmy 70 - 80 degrees. However, there's always a rare chance of rain, so maybe pack an umbrella.

Natural features

Llamas not dramas in the Brijuni National Park

Premantura is a popular beach resort on the southern point of Istria. It's a 20-minute drive from Pula, where you can get a boat over to the Brijuni National Park. Once the summer residence of President Tito, this group of 14 islands is stacked with natural charm. The main island, Veli Brijun, has plenty of scenic hikes where you can spot the wild dolphin and sea turtles which flit between the islands. It was also the home of Tito's private zoo, which was turned into a safari park in the 70s, and is now home to llamas, elephants, and mountain zebras.
