Located at the end of the peninsula, immersed in the blue-green sea, it creates a magnificent scene. 30 kilometers of coastline, coves and beaches, uninhabited islands, unique flora, and breathtaking scenery make Premantura a unique place. Its sea is one of the cleanest in the Mediterranean. The typical Mediterranean architecture gives the impression of a sleepy seaside town that resists the sea winds. In the center is the tower of the church of Saint Lovra, the patron saint of Premantura, which is visible from the sea and has served as a landmark for fishermen and sailors for years. Its history goes deep into the past. The early presence of life on the peninsula is evidenced by 70-million-year-old dinosaur tracks on the nearby island of Fenoliga and the remains of old buildings several thousand years old.
Due to its location, natural resources, and openness of its inhabitants, Premantura is the perfect destination for those who want an active holiday in a unique environment. Cape Kamenjak, 9.5 km long, a protected landscape, is known for its stunning 30 km long coastline (with large and small intimate coves and exceptionally clear sea) and for more than 570 plant species, 30 of which are on the endangered species list. . Among them are 20 species of orchids, some of which are endemic. In front of Cape Kamenjak rises Porer, a lighthouse built in 1833 on an 80 m wide rock, where today those who want a peaceful and unique Robinson holiday can be found. Premantura, with its exceptionally clean sea and the winds that kiss its coast, is a paradise for windsurfers, and its undersea rich in fish, shallows, underwater rocks, and sunken ships tempts every diver. Nowhere else does the sunset have such beauty, even on a bright night when the river of the moon spreads with passion. Premantura offers an unforgettable escape that nourishes the senses, energizes the body, and awakens the spirit.
In 1975, a significant discovery was made on the island of Fenoliga when dinosaur tracks belonging to various species, including theropods, ornithopods, and a sauropod, were found. These tracks date back to the Cretaceous period, approximately 65 to 70 million years ago. Premantura, originally known as Capo di Pola, received its name in the 1st century AD from Pomponio Mela, a Roman geographer, who named it Promunturium Polaticum. According to archeological findings, Premantura was inhabited as early as 4000 years ago. The area continued to be occupied even after the Roman occupation, and artifacts, including buildings, monuments, and a bronze statue of Minerva, have been found with Greek and Latin inscriptions. During the Roman Empire, Premantura and Pomer were part of Pula. In the 5th century, it was acquired by the Vesco family, followed by the Sergi family in the 8th century. Venetian rule began in 1331. In 1585, settlers from Zadar arrived in Premantura, fleeing from the Turks. The Church of St. Lorenca was built between 1632 and 1664, believed to have been constructed over the foundations of the church of St. Nicholas, which dated back to the mid-15th century. The valley nearby is known as Runtian or Runtianum, where the medieval settlement of Ronzano, later Ronzi, and today known as Runke, was established. The village was destroyed by the Uskoks in the 17th century, along with the church dedicated to St. Martin in the bay. Additionally, several military facilities from the Austro-Hungarian period can still be seen in the area.

The protected landscape of Cape Kamenjak, 9.5 km long and 400 to 1600 meters wide, immersed in the blue-green sea, is home to more than 570 plant species, 30 of which are protected, especially numerous species of orchids from 33 families. White dusty interlaced roads lead to its beautiful coast, over 30 km long, with alternating rocky and sandy beaches. The islets near Kamenjak are a place where you can still see cows grazing
Windsurfing - due to the favorable winds and specific coast, this place is ideal for windsurfing
