We have joy, we have fun

We have brass music

When crossing from the mainland, the island of Krk is reminiscent of a barren moonscape, but metre by metre it transforms into the ideal holiday destination. The popular seaside resort of Baška in the southernmost part of the island of Krk is located in a picturesque bay on the 1,800 m long Vela Plaža beach. Many cabin cruisers head to the island for day trips and to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere between the mountainous landscape and the crystal blue waters around the sand and pebble beaches of Baška. Countless restaurants and stands along the beach promenade beckon you to go out for long walks. Sports enthusiasts will find idyllic running trails, mountain paths for hiking and countless cycling routes that criss-cross the island and run along the coast.
