Savudrija

Discover the mystery of a major naval battle, ill-fated love and a mysterious lighthouse on the westernmost point of Istria.

Savudrija is the westernmost point of Croatia and the first destination when you enter Istria from the west.

Visit Savudrija and its beautiful beaches and great tourist offer in the surrounding area, but do not forget to unravel the dark tales concerning the origin of the name Savudrija and the oldest active lighthouse on the Adriatic sea.

This lighthouse was built at the beginning of the 19th century. It is 36 meters high, and the first lighthouse in the world that used coal gas for lights. The bituminous coal for this purpose was dug from a coal mine near Labin.

Take a swim at the stony beach only 30 meters from the lighthouse! Favorable winds and mild sea currents are perfect for marine sports such as windsurfing, and the clean sea and see-through rocky sea bottom offer beautiful underwater scenery for diving enthusiasts.
