Oprna bay in Stara Baska – Island of Krk

Rating: ★★★★½

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 sports. The bay also offers some good snorkeling opportunities in its shallow, calm waters.

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 min walk uphill and downhill again, so that you probably want to make sure you have anything you need, before you descend to the beach in first place.

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 you show up early in the morning (or at lunch time) in order to secure your spot.

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).

Malta Beaches – Armier Bay

Rating: ★★★☆☆

This beach is very popular among locals and you can definitely opt to drive there (or take bus route 50) if you wish to blend with them and spend a day at the beach the Maltese way. It’s a quite pretty, sandy beach with clean water and a decent landscape. Facilities such as bars and restaurants are there for your needs also. It’s probably not as beautiful as other beaches in Malta, but you might want to give it a try, if you’re looking from something different.

Malta Beaches – Pretty Bay

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Pretty Bay in BirzebuggaPretty Bay’s the only sandy beach in the southern part of the island of Malta. Although it’s probably not worth to reach Birzebbugia (or B’Bugia as it’s usually called in Malta) just to visit it, it might well be a cool place where to chill out for a few hours if you find yourself in the southern tip of the island. Actually, the beach wouldn’t be bad at all, with some fine white sand, a few palms and lot of facilities around. What definitely ruins the environment are the heavy duty harbour facilities you’re facing while at the beach. Really not your beach dream landscape; but again, it’s not a terrible beach and can definitely offer you a chance to dip into the water if you find yourself in the souther part of the island.
