The beaches of the Island of Krk are most welcoming points of interest on the island and each has a story of its own: rocky or pebbly, sandy or muddy, urban or hidden.

TOP 5: Sv. Marak, Risika Sandy Beach
Drive to Risika and take a right turn in the centre of the village. Drive for another 2 km in tarmac but down a rather narrow road. At the end you will find a lonely sand beach with a small peninsula with the ruins of St Marco church. There are no houses or villages in the vicinity of the beach, just refreshment stalls in summer. This is an excellent location should you want to dive from the coast. Recommended for couples and families with small children.

TOP 4: Ježevac and Porporela, Krk City Beach
There are nice pebble beaches, few steps away from the centre of the city of Krk, just behind the red lighthouse which can be seen from the port. The beaches in Porporela bay (Italian for lighthouse) accompanied with the nearby 4* campsite Ježevac beaches might be narrow, but are covered with small pebbles and have plenty of beach bars, restaurants and recreational facilities. It is a perfect place for enoying the sun, but also spending a day in shadow or playing tennis in your bathing suit. They are walking distance to the Krk city centre and have a splendid view.


TOP 3: Soline, Healthy Mud Beach
When driving to Klimno from Malinska, or vice versa, don’t get scared when instead of a common beach bikini show you suddenly see people completely covered… with black mud! It is not some scary ritual. You are at a shallow Soline bay, famous for its healthy mud. People from all over the world come to this bay to have the mud heal rheuma, bone aches or skin diseases. So, just park your car, put on the mud all over your skin and let the mud heal at least your mind.

TOP 2: Oprna Beach, Stara Baška Wild Beach
The most famous and the only accessible beach among them is Oprna beach. It seems like discovering Winnetou. You will find it when driving towards Stara Baška from Punat. Suddenly, there won’t be any vegetation, just rocks, just breathtaking views and one and only: the Oprna beach.

TOP 1: Vela plaža Baška, Longest Island Beach
She is The beach of tourism on the island of Krk. The Queen beach. Over 1 km of purely white pebble was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century by a Check tourist who built a hotel there even before the road was built. The old town is practically on the beach. Your children will love it! But, in high season there are plenty of tourists who love it as well. So, if you want somewhat of a more private experience, come in pre or post season. The beautiful 3 km long seaside walk from Naturist beach Bunculuka, through the town centre to the end of Vela plaža beach is astonishing any time of the year! Walking there in windy days with white waves coloring the sea in turquoise or in fresh winter days with hill peaks on the horizon covered in snow has its charm.
