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.

We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and enjoying the beautiful sea view. Our children loved the pool! We especially loved the location since it is near the center of Novalja, but you have more privacy. The owners were very nice to use and gave us a lot of information and were always at our service. The villa was very clean and we especially loved the big, bright rooms. Pag is a beautiful destination and we hope to return again. Our children are especially looking forward to the beautiful sea!

It is centrally located so is ideal for exploring the islands with all its many secret coves and beaches. There is a shop within walking distance for bread etc and the large supermarkets are only 10 minutes away. The villa is very well equipped and the hosts responded within minutes of any queries. We were two families travellling together with children ranging from 7-21! there was enough space for everyone and the kids got their monies worth from the swiming pools and jacuzzi. I would highly recommend this villa and we will be visiting KRK again it is a beautiful unspoilt island and will most certainly use this villa again. Both Ivica and Sandra (the hosts) made it feel like home from home - we was sad to leave!
