A lovely little town with a very picturesque harbour and lots of places to eat and drink.The best way to see this is by gooing on the Fish Picnic on the Klinica pirate boat.

This is probably my favorite place in Croatia and I go to Croatia an average two times per year. The island's proximity to Italy destined it to have changed hands frequently over the centuries, leaving marks of both Italian and Slavic culture. Forget the overwhelming white stone buildings of Dalmatia, Cres is vibrant with colors and life. Cres town as... More

After two days in Zagreb, we left for the island Krk, located in norhern part of Adriatic Sea, near the city of Rijeka. We travelled by the car, and in real manner, felt all the advantages of the super highway, that connected us with the island. What was before, one trip, three hours long, now or rather two years already,... More

Okay first of all as someone else already said, Omišalj is a small town on the Island Krk. Cres is a completely different island. Deffo one of the top 5 islands in Croatia. If you're a fan of bicycling, be sure to bring your bike along. I found the most amazing roads I've ever seen in my life. The whole... More

One of the most beautiful islands in Croatia for sure. When you travel from one side to the other it does not look so atractive because on the main street you can't see the sea side. Go in the villages and away from the main road and everithing changes. The are planty of beaches that are difficult to find, on... More

stopped here for lunch while on a fish picnic boat trip. It really made my holiday. This beautiful little island is by far one of the prettiest places I have stopped at. Still traditional, and largely unaffected by tourism. Its a lovely place to wander around for an hour or so, or just sit and relax with an icecream at... More

If you visit Cres, (easy to get to by ferry from Istria or the island of Kirk) don't miss this little village. It's not in the guide books and not even on some maps! There is a campsite nearby and the town itself has a few restaurants and accommodation. Superb setting.

This was one of the best holidays of my life. What a magical, beautiful, unspoilt, peaceful place. Eagles soared above us as we looked out at the turquoise sea across olive, fig, apricot and cherry trees. No litter, ancient hilltop stone villages. Old ladies selling honey and olive oil by the roadside. It is like going back in time and... More

Cres Island is one of those hidden places we visted out of Season and it was great! The island itself is lovely great views and the locals are really freindly! There are some really lovely views to be seen in Cres. We stayed for 5 nights and each night we found a great bar and a great restaurant - just... More
