The Island of Krk lies in Kvarner Bay in Croatia. One of the largest islands in the Adriatic, Krk is home to over 60 settlements and some wonderful natural landscapes worthy of investigation. The beautiful natural areas of Krk are matched only by the timeless coastal villages, which simply ooze charm and traditional Croatian beauty.

Things to do in Krk Island, Croatia

Krk is inundated with beaches. The endless sands of Vantacici, Porat, Malinska, Silo and Njivice are a beach lover’s dream. There are many miles of beach to choose from, and many hours can happily be spent sunbathing in peace. Water sports are hugely popular, especially in the resorts of Punat, Nijivice and Silo, with wake-boarding, water skiing and sailing being the most popular. However, it is scuba diving that really thrives from Krk accommodation. The island is famous throughout the region for its wonderful dive sites, but you must obtain a diving licence (for around €14) before diving. The Peltastis Wreck, Punta Silo, Vrbnik Cave and Tenki Reef are among the most exciting dives to enjoy.

The island hides a wealth of natural and man made treasures from most visitors, and there are some wonderful ways to really explore under the power of your own steam. Renting a sea kayak allows you can discover the silent beaches and caves that adorn the coastline, whilst on land, there are almost endless walking and cycling trails to take running through the changing landscapes and timeless villages of Krk. Horse riding is also extremely popular, with the main equestrian centre located near Njivice.
