Destination: Murter (island of Murter)

The islet of Prisnjak is only some 300 m from the western coast of the island of Murter. In 1886, a lighthouse was built on the islet in order to make it easier for captains to navigate in the Murter archipelago.

About the accommodation unit

The surrounding waters are very rich in fish, while the lighthouse building is only 15 m away from the beach and the docking place. Prisnjak, lined with stone walls and pine woods, is the most beautiful islet in the Murter archipelago.

There is one large apartment and a spacious stone terrace in the lighthouse. It is surrounded by pine trees and is ideal for an active holiday.

A large pine tree in front of the building offers plenty of shade on hot summer days. Next to the tree is a barbecue grill where recently caught fish can be prepared.

The lighthouse is automated and has no lighthouse keeper. Captain Severin Kulusic from Murter is responsible for the transfer of guests and he has been taking care of the lighthouse since it was automated. All guests to Prisnjak enjoy the stories and adventures of old Captain Kulusic.

Staying on Prisnjak is interesting not only in summer, but also in spring and autumn. Spring is perfect for sports fishing, summer is the time to enjoy the warm waters and starry nights, while autumn is famous for fabulous sunsets.

There are many islets in the vicinity, while Kornati National Park is only 6 NM away.


Concrete steps make it easy both for children and adults to enter the water. On the other side of the islet, there are several beaches that are not suitable for small children. The surrounding waters are very shallow and warm during the summer, meaning that the average water temperature is higher than in most other places in Dalmatia. Therefore, swimming on Prisnjak is possible even in October.


The surrounding waters are rich in different species of fish. The best fishing places are determined by weather conditions since there are more fish on the side of the island where there are large waves. We recommend to anglers the shallow channel between Prisnjak and the western, uninhabited side of the island of Murter. Diving with float is a must due to the many boats passing through the channel.


Transfer from Murter is organized by Severin Kulusic and the return transfer is charged an additional 60 EUR.

Transfer to Prisnjak, unlike to other lighthouses, can be organized during the whole day. It takes some 25 minutes and you will pass by several picturesque islets and cliffs.

In order to get to the place of Murter, turn off the main road (Jadranska magistrala) for Murter and Tisno and cross the bridge. Follow the road signs till you reach Murter. Take the road from the town center that will take you to the coast. We suggest you arrange to meet with Captain Kulusic at the monument near the harbor.

The price of transfer is given for informative purposes only. Atlas d.d., Dubrovnik or, Zagreb cannot be held responsible should the price of transfer be changed.


Supply of provisions including recently caught fish can be arranged with Captain Kulusic at extra charge.

Interesting to know

As with every lighthouse, Prisnjak also has a story of its own. In the 1950s, the lighthouse keeper's pregnant wife went into premature labor. The husband quickly put her into his row-boat and headed for the town of Murter. Nevertheless, he did not make it in time and the child was born in the row-boat. The child was named "Jadran" (Adriatic), while the place of birth in his birth certificate is Prisnjak - Murter.


A holiday on Prisnjak is not recommended to those looking for absolute quiet, tranquillity and privacy. Since the island of Murter is not far away, visits to the island by bathers and boaters are possible.

The islet is home to rabbits, mice, endemic species of lizards and blind-worm snakes. These inhabitants of the islet are completely harmless, nevertheless we suggest you keep your front door closed in order to prevent the animals from eating your provisions.
