Camping Island of Krk
The "golden island" of Krk, the largest island in the Adriatic, offers visitors romantic beaches, secluded coves and many other surprises.
Located in the middle of the Kvarner Bay, it is known as one of the most attractive holiday destinations. The mild Mediterranean climate, the favourable geographical location (it is connected to the mainland via the largest bridge in Croatia, with a length of 1,430 m), and the diversity of natural and cultural beauty earned the island the nickname of the "golden island" in the age of antiquity. It is known as the cradle of Croatian culture because of its wealth of cultural heritage. The island offers a variety of water sports and hikes. Along the coast of a crystal-clear ocean, you will ramble over rocky cliffs and pebble- strewn beaches. Breathe in the intoxicating aroma of sage and broom, and enjoy the folk festivals while enjoying the famous white wine of Vrbnička lahtina.
Holiday-makers in the Kvarner Bay luxuriate in a lovely Mediterranean climate. The daily high temperatures in the summer months of July and August are between 28° C and 30° C, and in the summer the ocean reaches temperatures of up to 26° C. Thanks to the mountain range that runs from the east to the southeast, the region is protected from cold winds.
Towns and Places
Punat is one of the largest nautical centres in Croatia today and the island centre for olive cultivation. Punat and the small island of Koljun are woven together by centuries of history. Even though it is only 750 metres away from Punat and has been connected to Punat for centuries, the small island of Koljun belongs to the city of Krk, according to the land register. Baška is known for having one of the largest and most beautiful pebble beaches on the Adriatic. The natural, 2-kilometre-long fine gravel beach is particularly well-suited for nonswimmers and children. As in other areas around Krk, the old part of Punat also has a typical Mediterranean atmosphere.
