Beaches under the Svetica hill

According to our guests two beaches are the reason to come back to Ližnjan. The first one is the beach under the Svetica hill. It is a part of the coast between Ližnjan and Šišan looking towards the east. We call this place “the small Kamenjak” because it looks like the real Nature park Kamenjak in Premantura but it is smaller and free to visit. Instead of explaining and describing this beaches I have taken some photos and put them in the gallery. You will see for yourself it is a wild place. The macadam road that goes from Šišan toward the beach is very bad so you need to drive carefully and slowly. Once you come back to the civilization your car will be completely dirty in desperate need of a car-wash, but this is a fair price to pay if you want to stay away from crowded beaches and get in touch with untouched nature.

Kamenjak – nature park

Kamenjak is a protected natural area situated at the very tip of Istrian peninsula and it is often described as “a wonder of Nature’s architecture”. It has a 30km long coast with many beaches, bays, coves and more than 550 plant species. At the most southern promontory there is famous and popular Safari bar whose particularity is that it is entirely built from the materials found in the immediate surroundings. If you enter Kamenjak nature park with car or motocycle an entrance ticket must be purchased, otherwise the entry is free. From Ližnjan take a road to Medulin, proceed towards Pula, then after few kilometers turn left to Pomer, proceed towards Banjole and finally turn left to Premantura. From Ližnjan to Premantura is about 13km. Some pictures of Kamenjak are here, and this are some external links about Kamenjak.

The island of Levan

levan-new3 Levan is a small island located at the South-East just 300 m from the coast. It attracts visitors because it has a nice sand beach on which there are several bars offering drinks and simple food, mostly prepared on the barbecue. In the summer season the bars organize events like wine party, human table football, water basketball tournaments and other crazy stuff. To come to Levan call the taxi-boat whose number you will find on a sign located on the coast just across the island. If you have your own boat or water-scooter you are allowed to reach the island by yourself. This link will take you the the Dreams & Sand beach bar located on the island.levan-new2
