Reenergise the mind and body, immersing yourself in the silence of the olive groves and the relaxing atmosphere of a sandy beach. From the latin Pons (meaning bridge), the city of Punat is located in the south west of Krk Island, the biggest island in Croatia, in one of the most sheltered bays in the Adriatic.
It is in one of the best loved sailing zones located in the North of Croatia, not only for the beauty of the landscapes but also the food and wine. Great olive oil and exquisite fish make up the base of the cuisine and can be tasted in the many restaurants that overlook the sea. The same waters that lap around the little island of Kosljun, inhabited only by franciscan monks and where there are two small churches: the church of the Annunciation of Mary and the chapel of Saint Bernardino.
Punat, is located in the large bay of Puntarska Draga and is covered in vegetation, in particular the olives that make up a large part of the local economy. You should visit the oil mills, the biggest on the island, that produces oil for the chain Kvarner Punat and can be bought directly on the spot.
It is a small and human sized city only 8 km from the islands capital, the city of Krk, that can be easily reached both by sea and by land, travelling through a corridor of dry walls known as gromazzi that mark out the ancient olive groves. It is a location beloved by naturists, who in the beach of Konobe, can experience one the most incredible blue flag beaches on the Croatian coast.
Another well known beach is Stara Baska, that can be reached via a steep hill bath that leads you to the coast and a series of magnificent sandy bays.
It is also nice to walk through the old town with its narrow streets made up of small stone houses. There are also numerous sites to see including the Carmelite convent, the Holy Trinity Church, St. Peter, St. Andrew, St. George and the chapels of St. Nicholas and St. Rocco.
