Beaches, Otok Krk
Within walking distance from Baška, there are several smaller beaches that are at least as lovely as the main beach “Vela Plaža”. I've never visited any of them in the summer, but I imagine they're pretty crowded, especially the first in the row – Bunculuka, which is a part of Bunculuka Naturist Camp. In the winter, however, you can have it all to yourself :)
If you continue along the narrow path along the coast from Bunculuka, after just 200m or so you'll reach another pebbly beach in Jablanova cove. I imagine this one is popular with those who don't care much about the sun as it has pine trees in the background where you can relax in the deep shade.
Further along there are two more pebbly beaches (I added photos of those in separate tips: Storišće beach and Vrženica beach). However, if you’re looking for something more remote, there are couple of nice beaches in Stara Baška (west of Baška), as well as beautifully located beaches of Vela Luka and Mala Luka (east of Baška).
Last beach in the row from Bunculuka to Canyon Vrženica is the pebbly beach in Vrženica cove.
Unlike the other three beaches I've mentioned in my tips (Bunculuka, Jablanova, Storišće), this one wasn't empty - a flock of sheep was leisurely walking along around us. What a great company!
I have no idea how popular this beach is in the summer, but it might get pretty crowded as it's within walking distance from the centre of Baška and the nearby camp.
The beach in Storišće cove is the loveliest of the beaches we saw on our way from Baška to Canyon Vrženica. My favourite part are the rocks smoothened by waves on each end of the beach.
I suppose the beach is very popular (and crowded) in the summer, but I prefer it this way – empty and tranquil, with no noise except for the sea.
The beach can be reached on foot from Baška (it takes less than 30 minutes). From the Bunculuka camp follow the narrow path along the coast for approx. 500m.
Slivanjska cove is located less than a kilometre from an old village of Rudine, and only a few hundred metres from the Biserujka Cave. There is a small port and secluded sandy beach, and if you visit outside the main season, you'll probably have it all for yourself. There's a also an educational trail that connects the beach with Biserujka Cave above it, with interesting information about how this landscape was shaped.
To get there, drive from Dobrinj to Rudine, and then follow the sign for Biserujka Cave.
Krk is our biggest island and its one of the islands that are well connected with mainland, by bridge. Krk bridge is our largest bridge, its not toll-free but the view really pays off...too bad is that you can't make a stop on the bridge, but there is a huge panoramic space once you cross over. The island itself is havily populated, beaches are rough, rocky. I suggest wearing shoes far water to prevent injuries. Otherwise Krk is the island with many interesting places to visit, smaller and bigger cities, marinas...and even has an airport!
The Foundation for Enviromental Education in Europe give to the beach in Ba?ka in June 1999 the Blue Flag, which is a proof for the quality of the beach and in the same time a result of all efforts and guarantee for the high quality of enviroment.
Beach at Soline bay is sandy and has areas with mud that is supposedly good for all sorts of aches and pains. But these little greenish creatures on the picture - they used ordinary mud, not the magical one! Anyway, they had a lot of fun.
The beach is a narrow strip on sand&rocks. But if you have to get some sunrays and take a swim, you got to do with what it offers.
PS: That's me waving there in distance :)
This is Baska's beach. It is rocky but water is warm and very clear and clean. From beach you have nice view to neighbour islands.
Try do be there at the end of the season. During the full season (july and august) beach is overcrowded and you will miss exceptional atmosphere this place offers.
Another wonderful beach, out of many on this picturesque island. This time it's a beautiful cove in Stara Baška, reachable only by boat.
