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.

Rather than about a single bay, we can actually talk about two bays here, one lying opposite to the other. One is a pretty wide one, allowing many tourists to sunbathe, without interfering much one with the others. It is also the most beautiful one (left hand on the map below), whereas the other one is a small secluded inlet, usually only populated by a few couples and hence even more intimate. The setting is pretty good but probably not as good as the one on the other side of the hill, in the main bay. The larger bay also offers some good snorkeling opportunities in its shallow, calm waters.

It’s very easy to reach (but not to access!) this beach, either from Punat or Baska; you just have to follow road signs for Stara Baska, and before you reach the Škrila camping site, you have to stop your vehicle and park above the beach. Then you have to follow a steep path downhill to reach it. Just remember to take your walking shoes; in fact the path down there require some minimal equipment and it’s not for the unfit. It’s definitely not a location for people with disabilities, but if your attention has been caught and yet this all sounds too daunting for you, you can probably also arrange some transportation there by boat from either the town of Stara Baska or the Škrila camping site.
