Krk Island: Things to See and Do

  • Explore Krk Town. See the impressive 5th-century Cathedral (built over the former Roman baths) and the sturdy Frankopan Castle.
  • Visit the 16th-century Franciscan Monastery, centering on a pretty abbey, on the Kosljun islet in Punat bay.
  • Go wine tasting in the medieval hilltop village of Vrbnik. Several wineries, such as the Agricultural Cooperative Vrbnik and Gospoja, produce the esteemed white Vrbnik zlahtina.
  • Visit an olive mill. At Ulika Maslinik you can see the process of olive oil production and buy some locally produced olive oil. Enjoy olive oil tasting with dinner in the same olive grove.
  • Hike Krk’s footpaths. There are 190 miles of marked trails – some of the best follow the coast and pass through secluded coves.
  • Discover Biserukja Cave, near the village of Rudine. This is an outstanding educational experience, especially for children.
  • Krk hosts a bi-annual Krk Food Fest (spring and autumn) when numerous restaurants showcase local seasonal specialties. While here, be sure to eat at Rivica, a fine-dining restaurant in Njivice on Krk’s west coast of Krk, with moorings out front. Or, in Krk Town, head for cozy Galija with a rustic stone-and-wood interior.
  • Spend some time in the water! Make use of your yacht’s water toys after a day of exploring the island.
