???????: UNUSUAL HOT CHOCOLATE
There wasn’t a lot to do in Punat. We did however stop at a little cafe/bar [I don’t know what it was called] where I ordered a hot chocolate. When it came, it was like a hot mousse. Strange but delicious.
Favorite Dish: hot chocolate?Add to your Trip Planner
KOSTARIKA: Yummy yum!
A great and cheap restaurant in the Punat downtown, with excellent yummy food (in HUGE quantities!), extremely kind personnel and VERY FAST service!
It is an old socialist style restaurant, which gives it an additional charm. I thought these were banished from Croatia, but apparently people have a hard time letting go of the old habits. ;) Good for us, because we ate very well, quite cheap and without waiting!
Favorite Dish: Any sea-food, although everything else is fabulous as well (don't miss the "pršut" - prosciutto - smoked "ham"!)Add to your Trip Planner

Punat Warnings and Dangers
Although I haven't exposed myself to the sun at all (staying in the shadow or undr a hat all the time), the sun was burning, radiation is immense! Not even the sunblock sunscreen protection in the shadow could save me from getting pinkish, and later tanned. God knows what would have happened without it, and staying directly exposed to the sun! So beware, do not stay out of the shadow and without a sunblock, otherwise you'll boil & burn, and they might serve you as a main course!
Also, avoid peak heat hours...Add to your Trip Planner
Punat Off The Beaten Path
Just before entering Punat, coming from Krk, there is this old church from the 12th century, just beside the road! It is totally misplaced, or rather, the town and road around it are misplaced, because it fits perfectly into the scenery, but not into the modern structures around!Add to your Trip Planner

Favorite thing: In Punat I have experienced some of the most beautiful sunsets ever. The sun sets just behind the hills on the other side of Punat bay, and it's beautiful to watch especially from the shore, or from the top of the hills just above Punat.Add to your Trip Planner
