The boat launch in Bašanija is extraordinary place due to the photogenic constructions that we will recognize on numerous selfies of locals and guests visiting Umag and its surroundings. Bašanija is one of the smallest towns that descend from Umag towards Savudrija and reaches the Lighthouse of Savudrija. It's famous for its beach but even more for the boat drainage that is surrounding the beach. What's so special about this place, all of those who have chosen it for an outdoor wedding or unforgettable wedding or vacation photography know. It could be said that the Bašanija drainage is irresistibly romantic, it emerges from the sea of some long lost time, with its wooden twisted poles that stretch out to the sky longing for love, as lovers long for each other in the red bloody sunsets. If you rent an apartment, room or vacation house in Umag and its surroundings, look for a Bašanija beach, where you will easily spot twisted and interwoven branches that follow the narrow docks. It is the legacy of some distant time, when Savudrija and Umag fishermen were sailing at the rendezvous with a dark and a restless sea and were returning tired and happy, to carefully store their boats, which were their lives, at the boat drainage in Bašanija. Contemporary drainage less uses the physical strength of man and more modern technology, so we will rarely find a similar boat drainage along the Adriatic coast at present. The best thing is that the Bašanija drainage is still operating. We will find a boat posing over our shoulder in the summer months, the one its owner had pulled out in order to clean it and paint it with love, great love such the one among ships and human is.
