Baška/island of Krk
Baška is the best known tourist resort on the island of Krk, the Adriatic’s biggest island (40,578 ha).
Krk’s position in the northern part of the Croatian Adriatic makes it the closest island to Central Europe. Baška’s favourable location has ensured its continuous growth and prosperity, as well as a distinctive place on the tourist scene, making the town one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Adriatic.
The town is located in a gentle valley, in a bay surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and flowering broom, with a picturesque background of the rocky mountains of Velebit and the islet of Prvić, which seem to shelter its unique 1,800-metre-long pebbly beach, justly said to be one of the loveliest in the Adriatic.
You will be deeply impressed by the wealth of unspoilt nature. Baška has all the characteristics of the Mediterranean climate: pleasant springs, warm summers with little rainfall, gentle autumns and windy winters.
In the summer, sea temperature can rise to 25 C, and the swimming season lasts from May to October. The characteristic winds that mark the seasons in Baška are mostly the bura, a wind that dominates in winter, the sirocco in spring and autumn, and the maestral, or north-westerly wind, in summer.
