CAPE KAMENJAK is the southernmost cape of Istria. Kamenjak is a protruding piece of land delving deep into the sea, some six kilometers long with the average width of about a kilometre. Kamenjak rugged coastline, some 30 kilometers long consist of numerous bay and various beaches forming an area of exceptional natural beauty including 11 unhabitated islands. Due to its exceptional natural values, the peninsula consisted of Upper and Lower Kamenjak was declared a protected area in 1996 and has been managed since by Public institution of Kamenjak. Lonely Planet wrote this about Cape Kamenjak in 2012: “It′s the wild rugged beauty and end-of-the-world vibe of this small peninsula just south of Pula that earned it cult status among Croatian beach goers. An undevelpoed protected nature reserve, Kamenjak showcases a carpet full of health plants, shurbs and wildflowers criss-crossed by a maze of dirt tracks running through it all. It′s fringed by a string of peeble bays and secluded rocky beaches, surrounded by crystalline blue-green sea. Its get busy in summer but there′s always an empty beach to escape to, plus a fun beach bar for socialising.”
Cape Kamenjak is one of my favorite zen spots in Istria. I often come on Kamenjak for mountain biking or trekking combined with swimming in summer. I’ve never been on Cape Kamenjak with car till last Saturday. I was in Pula and the rain was pouring but I decided to try my luck and I went to Premantura and eventually on Kamenjak. One wave of storm passed across cape, the sun was shining but on horizont there was another shelf cloud approaching. I enjoyed sun rays for a while and got prepared for photo action. I was excited because I finally got opportunity to photograph storm on Kamenjak and these are the results! I hope you’ll enjoy viewing the photos as I did taking them.
