It is good to know that the Island of Krk is one of the sunniest regions of Europe with around 2,500 hours of sunshine per year. 
One of the places yachtsmen love to return to every year is Kvarnerić, the gulf that includes the islands of Cres, Krk, Rab, Pag, Olib, Silba, Ilovik and Lošinj, with numerous lovely bays for anchoring.

Kvarneris specific because of its diversity. There are beautiful beaches waiting for you in the coastal region, some only accessible by boat. There is also the mountain region where you can engage in numerous outdoor activities in spring and fall. Winter in the Kvarner area is an experience to remember – this is the only region where you can go skiing or sledding while revelling in the view of the sea.

The island itself has excellent trails for hiking and cycling. There are beautiful hidden pebble beaches with a crystal clear sea between Punat and the southern tip of the island that are only accessible by boat. Some are found on the south part of the island: Oprna, Zlatna Beach, Vela Luka and Mala Luka are just a few of them…
