In the vicinity of the lighthouse we can find characteristic boat lifts-grues. This is a resourceful way of lifting boats without safe mooring on wooden constructions with the help of rope and pulley. Charactericst of Savudrija is also a wooden boat with a flat bottom called batana, intended for individual coastal fishing, rowed in a standing position.
