There is a staggering variety of landscapes, cultures and activities available from Kvarner Bay accommodation, allowing visitors to enjoy lazy days on beautiful beaches, long hikes in the mountain air and unrivalled sailing during the same holiday, and during the winter months, you can even ski.

Things to do in Kvarner Bay, Croatia

Kvarner Bay is a hugely popular destination for both cycling holidays and sailing holidays. The fantastic panoramic views from almost every corner along the Kvarner Mainland make the region a perfect place to discover slowly, taking in the sights, tastes and sounds of the region at your own pace. There are many fantastic walks around Kvarner Bay to be enjoyed too. Many of the beaches in the area are backed by long promenades, and the mountains are a maze of excellent walking routes to tackle. One of the best places in which to explore the Kvarner countryside is from the magnificent landscapes of the Paklenica National Park, which lies in the southern end of the Velebit Mountains.

The beach life is wonderful from a holiday rental in Kvarner Bay. There are almost endless beaches to choose from, and due to the long tourist heritage in the area, all your needs are well catered for, especially for those wishing to sail or fish from their Kvarner Bay accommodation.

Places to visit on holiday to Kvarner Bay, Croatia

The Kvarner Mainland is often referred to as the Croatian Riviera, due to the phenomenal standards of its beach resorts, which have been bringing visitors to the region for well over 160 years. The Gorski Kotar Highlands are a walker’s dream, with dramatic scenery providing panoramic views of the highest quality at almost every step. The quality of services, wonderful beaches and crisp mountain air have made villas in Kvarner Bay some of the most sought after in Croatia, especially with sailors due to the eight excellent marinas that adorn the coastline.

The Kvarner Islands are a perfect place to get away. The beaches are less well known than those of the Kvarner Mainland, and with so many secluded bays and inlets, there is always plenty of room in which to moor a boat, go fishing or relax on the beach. There are a great range to choose from, the vast majority of which are blessed with wonderfully historic little towns and large swathes of unspoilt countryside, ideal for walking and cycling.

During the summer months, temperatures average over 20°C for the period between May and September, with daily peaks in the mid 30’s expected throughout July and August. Even during winter, you would expect temperatures to push the 10°C mark on most days.

Beautiful view, large and comfortable apartment

4 of 5
This is a very spacious apartment with a wonderful view to enjoy from the balcony. The rooms and big and comfortable. We enjoyed shopping for fish, mushrooms and vegetables in the daily market in Labin, cooking and eating while admiring the view. It's easy to walk down the steps to the town of Rabac, with many restaurants and bars. Not everything was working perfectly in the apartment, but I'm sure the owner will address this, communication is very good. We enjoyed our stay there.

Superb! Comfortable, well positioned and private

5 of 5
I can't rate this villa highly enough. As others have said, 'what you see is what you get' - no tricks of photography. The villa has been furnished to a very high quality and, most importantly, the beds are comfortable. The surroundings are quiet (you will even see Mink nearby!) and private. The owners are delightfully helpful (giving you complete privacy or helping you to plan your trip, as you prefer). You will need a car. One note of caution (nothing to do with the villa) is that if you eat out, it is better to eat at established, non-seasonal restaurants otherwise you could be waiting in excess of 1.5h for service at coastal seasonal restaurants - that's if you don't give up beforehand!! If you like the equivalent of 'Brighton of the UK' experience, head for Opatija or, if you like medieval villages with cobble streets, there is no shortage with Rovinj, Buzet, Motovun, Labin etc etc. especially nice. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa to other guests - oh, and by the way, do take time to go up to the highest point behind the villa (Vela Ucka) for the fabulous views of the region and islands.
