Tell me more about Premantura
This is my first post i hope you will enjoy it.
Premantura has been inhabited since the Bronze Age, the place was built on the ruins of the old Illyrian- Roman settlement, as evidenced by the remains of a rustic villa and the statue of Minerva. The statue is kept in the Archaeological Museum in Pula.
The nature and the beaches in Premantura are really a fantasy come true. South of the town is nature park Cape Kamenjak. The park is about 10 kilometers long and 1,5 kilometers wide. There are about 30 bays, all the bays are beautiful in their own way! Premantura is not only a lovely place for beach and nature lovers also food lovers will have a great time here, because the restaurants serve excellent fish and seafood.
Most of the beaches in Premantura are rocky beaches. You can enjoy the sun on the beach and then cool down in the sea or take a nap under a tree. The sea is crystal clear and the colors are blue and green, believe me it’s really amazing! 🙂 Premantura is one of the few destinations that has a beach specially made for blind people.
Sports and Recreation
Thanks to it’s position, its a perfect place for windsurfing. There are a couple windsurf schools where you can learn windsurfing or rent windsurf gear. The best time for windsurfing is from early summer to late autumn. In addition to windsurfing, diving, sailing, water skiing there are also tennis courts and mini golf courses. To really have an inside view of Premantura, I recommend you to take a bike and explore all the beauty this town has to offer. Don’t forget to bring a hat and water with you, because it can get really warm in the summer.
