Take walks, ride a bicycle, kayak and surf with friends, and then relax in beach bars on the shore of the Cape Kamenjak.
The southernmost cape of the Istrian peninsula is one of the last coastal oases that has kept its appearance. It is a mosaic of cultivated fields, pastures and green groves almost immersed in the sea. The nearby towns are Pula and Medulin. You can reach the rocky beaches of the Cape Kamenjak by one of Istrian cycling trails or by sea in a kayak.
Strong sea currents that collide around Kamenjak are a limiting factor for surfing, but the winds are favorable. If you love high diving, the clear sea and steep cliffs will provide you with a full day of fun. However, we must warn you to check the weather forecast before heading to Kamenjak, because the southernmost point of Istria is prone to sudden changes in the weather and, consequently shifts in wind and sea currents throughout the year.
