Oprna bay in Stara Baska – Island of Krk

Rating: At about 10 km south of Punat, lies famous Oprna Bay, one of the most prominent and beautiful beaches of the island of Krk. This 120m wide, remote pebbly beach has some of the clearest waters and best unspoiled environments that you might experience, so it’s definitely suggested for a day at the beach. It’s not very easy to reach it, since you have to follow a pretty long and steep downhill trekking path. Once you’re there, some fun and relax are guaranteed though. Immersed into nature you’ll be able to sunbathe, swim, snorkel or even play some beach [ ... ]

Unnamed Bay near Stara Baska (Island of Krk)

Rating: At about 10 km south of Punat, right between famous Oprna Bay and the Škrila camping site in Stara Baska, lies this unnamed pebbly beach, where a good day at the beach (and some good trekking) are both guaranteed. You can sunbathe, swim or snorkel within this unspoiled environment. There are no shops, bars or facilities around, so that you have to make sure you bring everything you need before you get there. If you forget something, you might be lucky enough to find it at the nearby camping site, but it’s still going to cost a good 30 [ ... ]

Harbor Beach in Baska (Island of Krk)

Rating: This small pebble beach lies right next to the harbor in the town of Baska in the island of Krk. It is a good alternative to Vela Plaza and not too far from it either. Water is usually clear and calm, thus making a good candidate setting for swimmers (and sunbathers alike). The proximity with the harbor, although not a busy one, can cause some disturbance on the water on those days when currents are adverse; never too much of a problem though. Just as Vela Plaza, this little beach can also get crowded, so that it’s suggested that [ ... ]

Vela Plaza in Baska, Island of Krk

Rating: Right within the center of the town of Baska, Vela Plaza is one of the most famous (and hence crowded) beaches in the island of Krk. Water is crystal clear and usually calm, thus providing an ideal setting for everyone, especially families with children. It always gets crowded though, so that you have to show up early in order to secure your spot and also to expect a day surrounded by other people (mainly Italian, German or Croatian tourists) if you decide to stop here. It is mainly a pebble beach with a few spots where sunbathing on the [ ... ]

Croatia – Bunculuka Bay (Baska, Island of Krk)

Rating: Banculuka Bay is a sandy/pebble beach within the premises of the FKK Banculuka naturist Camp, in the island of Krk (near the town of Baska). The beach is pretty wide, offering lot of locations where to sunbathe. Although it’s rare to find yourself suffocating in a dense crowd, you still have to be prepared that you’ll definitely share this beach with other people – to get you an idea about numbers, the camping alone can accomodate more than 1000 guests. Most of these people will be naturist and hence they’ll be naked. Just be prepared for this. Water is [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Mistra Bay

Rating: Mistra Bay is a pebble beach located between Xemxija Bay and Selmun. It is more common among locals rather than tourists, to the point that many tourist maps do not even mention it. It’s not large and is usually overtaken by Maltese, so that you have to show up early if you really want to spend the day there. There are a few facilities in the area, such as a restaurant and a bistro just across the road from the bay. It might be good choice if you wish to experience a “Maltese day at the beach”, but my [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Golden Bay

Rating: Golden Bay’s of the most popular Sandy beaches of Malta. It’s located in the north-western part of the island, overlooked by the Radisson Blu hotel complex. It’s popular among families, but also couples or tourist groups. It’s very easy to be reached and accessed, and offers all the facilities you might need (cafe, restaurant, umbrella/water sport hire) for a day full of fun at the beach. It’s usually safe for swimming (thanks also to the common safe buoys, very common in all Malta beaches), but it is prone to strong currents when the wind blows from the north-west. A [ ... ]
