The marina Punat is in a sheltered bay of the Adriatic on the island of Krk and is the ideal departure point for cruises to the islands of the Kvarner bay and south. Along the coast are the oldest and very glamorous tourist towns of Optija and Lovran. The landscape is made up of luscious green hills with wonderful mooring bays with crystal clean waters. The influence of the Venetians and the regal Austrian monarchy has given this region a very special flavour.
The Kvarner bay, between the east coast of Istria and the Velebit mountain range is a very popular sailing estuary with wonderful bays, hidden beaches, charming towns and modern marinas.
Here are a large variety of islands. The larger ones being Krk, Cres, Losinj, Rab and Pag; all in some way similar, but still very different. Explore the gentle beauty of Krk, the steep coast of S Cres, the liveliness of Losinj, the rough landscape of Pag and the fabulous sandy beaches of Rab. A perfect selection of swimming and quiet areas are in the south on the islands of Ilovik, Molat, Premuda and Olib, which are like Susak and Unje, also favourite destinations. Go a little further you can reach the known lighthouse of Veli Rat and the shipwreck on the island of Dugi Otok.
