Experience Camping Resort Lanterna!

This modern family campsite is located amidst the well-preserved Mediterranean greenery of the Lanterna peninsula, situated on the western Istrian coast between the fishing town of Novigrad and the famous tourist resort of Poreč. Because of the great variety of well-tended areas in its oak woods and along its magnificent beaches, you'll have the impression that this is actually several campsites in one.

You can choose from among seven different types of spacious pitch by the sea or under the shade of pine trees. The Camping Resort also has a wide range of mobile homes distributed across different parts of the campsite and in five separate themed villages: the Mediterranean Garden Premium Village, the Marine Premium Village, the Marbello Premium Village, the Happy Dog Premium Village, and the Istrian Village. If you'd like to enjoy a unique luxury camping experience, we have luxury glamping tents with a shared pool in the attractive Tarska Cove part of the campsite. Your pets are welcome in a separate part of the campsite and on several designated beaches.
