Merag is a village and ferry port on the east of the island of Cres. The nearest settlement is the town of Cres (3 km southwest). Merag has only a few permanent residents, and has retained the status of a traditional Croatian village.
Next to the place is Meraška jama, a large tectonic cave overgrown with dense laurel forest. Merashka jama is an unusual geomorphological structure carved into the slope, to the left of the ferry port and the village of Merag. This is a rare and very impressive example of the collapse of a valley on the island of Cres. It probably originated in the distant past when the roof of a large underground cave collapsed. The sides of the Meraška Cave are steep and rocky, while at the bottom of the valley a lot of debris and many large boulders have accumulated, as evidenced by the huge fractures and depressions of the rocks that have occurred here in the past.
