Beaches

The island of Krk is surrounded by clear and clean sea. Beautiful beaches are of particular interest. 

The bathing season starts in spring and lasts till late autumn, thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate.
Krk beaches are full of sounds, smells and colours you must not miss. It is up to you to find a beach that suits you best!!!!Some are hidden in the bays, some are nicely arranged hotel or public beaches, some are pebbled or sandy, rocky… some can only be reached by boat or taking walks on shepherd’s paths along the pine forest. However, all these Krk beaches are suitable for visitors of different affinities. 
If you wish to spend your vacation surrounded by your family, practising sports and looking for entertainment, there are a number of bays connected by walking paths offering various facilities such as sports parks, children parks, often located in deep shade and accompanied by a café or restaurant.
If you prefer the isolation or a romantic spot, little bays hide the undisclosed beaches, away from civilization and crowded areas; some of them accessible only from the sea side are the right choice.
As the sun sets, the beaches invite you to take romantic walks or look for entertainment. In search for the latter, look for cafes and clubs in the open, offering entertainment until the early morning hours.
The island of Krk offers beaches for pets and nudist beaches located in natural bays with crystal clear sea bringing the man close to the nature.
The island of Krk is also the island of Blue Flags. There are 15 beaches proud to wave the Blue Flag as the best evidence of clean sea and coast with high standards of services.
