St. John lighthouse, built in 1853. It is located on the most distant islet of the small archipelago in front of Rovinj. This islet is actually a 70 x 50 meter rock with a relatively easily accessible shore and shallow waters, which makes St. John an ideal destination for families with children that would like to spend a Robinson Crusoe type of holiday.
The 23 m high lighthouse tower offers fabulous view. There are two four-bed apartments in the lighthouse building. The islet has a berth where smaller boats can be pulled out with a crane. Due to splendid underwater sites and numerous species of fish, this destination is very popular for those looking to get away from the everyday life, as well as for those that like to go fishing and diving.
Rock formation on St. John is ideal for suntanning. There are two beaches with shallow waters on opposite sides of the islet. We advise swimmers to be cautious and not to swim far away from the coast due to changing currents.
Transfer from the port of Rovinj is charged an extra 1000 HRK per apartment. We recommend transfers early in the morning (departure time before 9 am). The trip to the lighthouse on Mr. Gordan Kutinyach's boat takes 30 minutes, depending on weather conditions. Disembarking on the islet in the afternoon is difficult due to strong western winds.
All provisions can be purchased in Rovinj prior to the transfer, provided you arrive in Rovinj early in the morning.
