Savudrija, a coastal settlement in northwestern Istria, Istria, Croatia

Savudrija (Italian: Salvore) is a coastal settlement in northwestern Istria, Croatia. It has developed from a fishing village into a pleasant holiday centre. Savudrija is also the name of the surrounding area in the peninsula.

The 19th century Savudrija Lighthouse is a distinctive local landmark; it is the oldest in Croatia, and the oldest operational light of the Adriatic. The 29 m high lighthouse, is also the most northerly in Croatia. Three kinds of wind meet here, so the area is popular with windsurfers.

The economic base is mainly tourism. The development of Savudrija as a seaside resort began with the creation of a healing and bathing facility of the St. Anna Children's Hospital in Graz. Compared to other tourist places in Istria, Savudrija is more of a tranquil holiday resort. There are few hotels and restaurants.

Savudrijas beaches are mainly rocky, but there are small pebble beaches as well.

Agriculture is still important, especially the cultivation of vegetables and wine, the indigenous varieties of wine like Teran or Malvasia included, in the rich terra rossa soils of the district.
