Island of Cres


The island of Cres is located in the northern part of the Kvarner Bay. Easily accessible, the island can be reached by ferry from the island of Krk or from the Istrian peninsula on the west side. From a distance this island seems like a rough chain of hills; even when you visit an island, you will often find it bare. One of the reasons for this characteristic is precisely the position of Cres; namely the island is not protected from the cold wind Bura blowing from the mainland, so in the western part of the island is mostly low vegetation, and only on the east side of Cres you can find lush deciduous trees. Friendly locals, beautiful pebble and sandy beaches, preserved environment and clear sea are the main tourist attractions and advantages of the island. As for accommodation, there are only two hotels on the island, right next to the beach that will allow you a top vacation.
