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.

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!

The house is just stunning. We hired a car at Rijeka and it's about 90 minutes drive to the ferry which takes 13 minutes and is very efficient. the house is high in the hills which gives you amazing views but you can easily reach the old town on foot (it is quite steep)... we always came home by taxi! We were initially put off by the reviews mentioning lack of air conditioning upstairs but both rooms had very effective units installed so it's definitely worthy of 5 stars.

The villa is stunning and beautifully done, both inside and out. As one of two families (both with 3yr old girls) we were extremely pleased with such a fabulous pool, super eating/bbq area and the playground was very much enjoyed by two little ladies!! Vedran not only advised us on places to go but brought round a tremendous ferrero rocher cake, locally sourced sheep cheese and olives, plus some fresh eggs! Well beyond the call of duty. Everything was as comfortable and relaxing as we could have possibly wished for. Wonderful villa, location and holiday all round - thank you so very much Vedran and Tea!
