Croatia Beaches – Mali Raj (Island of Krk)

Rating: ★★★★½

Mali Raj Bay - Near Baska, Island of Krk, CroatiaMali Raj (little heaven in Croatian) is a secluded tiny bay in the island of Krk. It is so small and intimate that no more than a couple or two can share it. Of course, you have to get there early in the morning in order to take it before someone else does! Yes, it’s THAT small. It’s located near the Bunculuka nudist camping (you can indeed find some naturists here also), and can be reached from there through a step and rough trekking path. Once there, you’ll find yourself immerged into the intimate atmosphere which surrounds this tiny pebble beach with clear crystal water; a perfect place to spend the day, especially with your loved one. Snorkeling is decent with outstanding visibility (a little fish, nice reef) and water is usually calm and hence perfect for swimmers. There are no facilities, so make sure you bring some food and especially drinks (definitely needed to get there in first place).

From the town of Baska, you have to reach the FKK Bunculuka camping first. It takes you about 15 minutes to get there (walking eastward from the town center). At the camping entrance you might be asked to pay a little entrance fee. Sometimes if you tell them that you’re just passing by and that you’ll buy some drinks in the camping shops, they let you get in. Of course, if you try to do this, it’s then NOT fair to settle within camping premises. If you prefer to avoid any kind of problems, you can otherwise just circumvent the camping and reach its other beach side from outside the camping (just ask the people at the entrance gate how to do this). Once there, in order to reach Mali Raj Bay, you have to keep on following the steep and winding offroad path leaving the beach at the the remote end of Bunculuka Bay and walk for about 30 more minutes. On your way there you’ll find Jablanova bay, which is another nice (yet usually crowded) pebble beach. Before you reach Storisce (another quite prominent pebble beach) you’ll reach Mali Raj. Please just remember that the path taking you there is definitely steep, winding and rough, with a few sections where you’ll be walking on rocks, so you definitely need to be equipped with rubber soled shoes. It’s also definitely NOT advisable to get there for people with physical limitations of any sort. And, of course, don’t forget to bring refreshments. You’ll need them!
