Bask in Baška
The pride of the island of Krk, Baška has one of the best beaches of the area. Once a sleepy fishing village on the southern tip of the island, a contrast to the now summer resort town found on holidays to Baška. A coveted holiday destination in the Kvarner Bay, the resort offers its visitors a sunny beach nestled between two hills that just beg to be trekked. Baška holidays are perfect, whether you want to wander round and explore the typically Mediterranean landscape of olive trees and fresh pine, or grab a beach towel and set up camp on the shores for days on end.
Jewel of Krk
As the second largest town on the island, you are sure to find the type of accommodation that you need for your trip here from Rijeka. The heart of the seaside town has several different hotels for you to choose from for your Baška holidays, though the fishing village is best admired from its shores. The promenade that extends the length of the coast offers plenty of apartments and villas to rent, especially over the harbor. There is always the quieter coastal town of Stara Baška – or Old Baška – just around the headland and accessible by boat or car from Punat.
Time for Beaches
Of all the things to do while on holidays in Baška, you have to spend at least a few days basking in the sun. Find your spot on the pebbly stretches of beaches, some of which are only accessible by boat for ultra-seclusion. If you’re travelling with the whole family, never fear as there are several options to choose from with shallow waters and calm waters perfect for the little ones. You can keep fit with a myriad of water sports like jet skiing to try your hand in, as well as pickup games of beach volleyball and football. Whether you’re a novice or diving expert, you can explore the sea with a bit of scuba diving. Grab a pair of hiking boots, a map, and your trusty camera phone and take any number of hiking routes from Baška to the rest of island. It is best to explore the town in the early evenings, when the afternoon light casts a golden glow upon the site – so make sure to keep your camera handy and batteries charged to capture postcard-worthy moments. Follow up with a delicious seafood meal from within town or along the sea, and sample some of Croatia’s most delectable dishes and wines.
