Cape Kamenjak, the southernmost point of Istria, is a protected nature zone with many plant species. The aroma of aromatic herbs and salt, against a backdrop of buzzing bees and the murmuring sea, melds into a pure sensation of nature. This vital point on Adriatic navigation routes was overseen by numerous historical hillforts and Roman country villas with now submerged docks, while the remains of ships on the sea floor testify to mighty winds and fierce waves. The islet of Fenoliga is one of the richest sites of dinosaur footprints in Europe. The Porer Lighthouse, built on the islet in 1833, today ensures the safety of navigation and issues warnings for powerful marine currents near the coastline.
