The peninsula of Grakalovac is known for its fossilized remains of dinosaur foot tracks, which can be accessed by a promenade from Kamenjak. The peninsula contains an about 600 meters long educational and recreational trail characterized by life-size sculptures. Among Zlatko Španić’s works, there you can find sculptures of rudist limestone, ammonite and tetrapod. The trail contains a number of educational tables containing information about the inhabitants of the area from the Cretaceous period. The end of the trail is the most interesting; the cape Grakalovac is rich with plate rocks containing twelve footprints belonging to the former rulers of the world. Apart from this cape, the island of Fenoliga is one of the richest deposits of dinosaur footprints, and the analysis showed that they belonged to Sauropods. There is also the Kamenjak Nature House which provides a comparison of the current and former interesting world of Kamenjak.
