The largest island in the Adriatic sea, located in the Bay of Kvarner. It is the most populous Croatian island and is a popular tourist destination, thanks to its proximity to west and central Europe, and it is well connected with both a bridge to the mainland and Rijeka International Airport. Beautiful sandy or pebbly beaches and water slides for kids and wine for the parents. Baska is located on Krk’s southern shore and abounds in beaches. Some thirty pebbled beaches accessible to swimmers of all ages, while some of them have to be reached on foot or by boat. Still, the biggest and one of the most beautiful is Baska’s Vela Plaza, the Great Beach, right in the center of town, surrounded by bars, restaurants, pizzerias, cafes, hotels, private flats and other things all of which are an integral part of the place’s attractions.
Rabac Beach – Rabac offers a wide variety of sport activities, boat excursions and other recreational facilities. The town also has a fine gastronomic offer, beautiful beaches and is a destination of choice for families. Rabac, known as the “pearl of Kvarner” because of beautiful crystal clear sea and white pebble beaches. Easy access, beautiful beaches and clear sea make Rabac one of the best holiday resorts for families, but lots of sport and entertainment facilities, including popular summer music festivals, our most favorite! Rabac is blessed with string of pebbly beaches, tiny coves, small bays, crystal-clear sea water and lush Mediterranean vegetation north and south of the town. Four of Rabac’s beaches have been awarded with the Blue Flag award.
Rab – On the island of Rab there are several small towns and villages scattered over the island. One of them bears the same name as the island. City of Rab is mostly known for its four church bell towers which became the symbol of the town and island, and the town patron is St. Christopher.

On the north coast of the island, resembling a stone wall, stretches the barren hill Kamenjak, which protects the south of the island from strong winds from the continent. The south is rich in Mediterranean vegetation and beautiful sandy and rocky beaches. Everyone can find a place for themselves on island of Rab. of sand, shallow, crystal clear and warm sea water (up to 28°C in the Summer months), the greenest pine forest which offers protection and shade are surely just some of the reasons why numerous guests are attracted.
