Beach Destination Nearish Rijeka

We're looking at a holiday plan that arrives in Rijeka in the evening by train, and then want to spend a few days by the beach. Up to a 40km taxi ride would be about 25 euros right? The ideal would be a small town or village, and a nice beach that doesn't get really crowded in summer (not expecting it to be dead quiet, just not packed). On a bus route would be nice, but not essential. Any suggestions on what would fit best?

What is your date and time of arrival? Many options by bus if it's not late in day.

Thanks, but it has to be taxi - we're a family, and Mrs S is not keen on youth backpacking options (I'm pushing it with the train travel :D ).

Malinska looks like one option. What do you guys think? Or are there better places on the mainland SW or SE of Rijeka?

Malinska beaches are ok but not great for families. Klimno and Soline are better options in the north of Krk, best of all is near Baska, but thy are in the South of Krk.

I should've said the kid are teenagers now - so swimming not paddling. From a quick search Soline Bay looks to have lots of shallow water right?

And if you/anyone has confirmation of taxi fares from Rijeka to the northern part of Krk Island, that'd be great.

Thanks!

Yes lots of shallow water there. Taxi should not be more than £25 but make sure to agree price before getting in car.

Local beaches in Rijaka: Pecine, Kantrida and Kostrena - where you probably can find peaceful spot. All walkable. Beaches in Rijeka are bit colder. Fresh water is coming out from mountains. Taking taxi you have many options. Opatija and near by villages. Or Crkvenica..
