Park of Nature Cape Kamenjak
Kamenjak unites the four elements – Water, Fire, Earth and Air. A man feels great here. Cape Kamenjak (also called the Peninsula of Premantura or Punta Premantura) is about 3.400 m long, 500 to 1.600 m wide; characterized by an indented and long coastline (30 km), lots of interesting coves as well as the specific sequences of hills and hollows. Everything is approachable because of the vicinity. The complete area is covered in cycling and pedestrian paths, and eleven uninhabited islands that surround it, seem to be “inviting and greeting” the visitors. Fenoliga, one of the small islands is situated at the very Southwest coast of Kamenjak and it is only 300 m distanced from the coast. At the same time, the strong currents make it the least approachable (for the brave swimmers) island of this archipelago.
Fenoliga is one of the most famous European locations where dinosaur traces were found. According to the scientific data, six ways of dinosaur marching was recorded, counting about one hundred dinosaur foot traces! The very South of Kamenjak counts numerous caves. The largest ones are the Big and the Small Kolombarica. For those who want a more detailed introduction to Cape Kamenjak, no more than good shoes, little physical condition and biology knowledge is needed.
