Accommodation options

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 campsite also has a wide range of well-equipped mobile homes distributed across different parts of the campsite located in three separate themed villages: the Mediterranean Garden Premium Village, the Marine 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.

The campsite offers quiet and privacy, but also plenty of entertainment options for the entire family. Your kids will love the attractive family water park with its pirate ship and water slides, the multilingual entertainment programme in the Maro Club, the children's playgrounds and the Teens Lounge. For parents and active guests, there are daily and evening entertainment activities, a varied sports programme, an outdoor pool with underwater massage, and a beauty salon. Additionally, the campsite has excellent restaurants, grill areas, bars by the beach and pool, kiosks with fresh pastries and fast food, a grocery shop and fish market, and 3 supermarkets.
