Krk Island is the largest island in Croatia and connected to mainland Kvarner by a toll bridge, making it easily accessible from Opatija and Rijeka and the scores of tourists who visit from inland Croatia and neighbouring countries. A ferry connection with Losinj also makes it a stopping point on a Kvarner Bay island hopping trip.
It is a diverse island with a good tourist infrastructure, the main destinations being Malinska, Vrbnik, Punat, Baska and Krk Town which range from picturesque old towns, to rural villages, busy beaches, forests in the west to sunburnt ridges in the east.
Vrbnik, on the east coast, is a charming hilltop village tucked away from the tourist masses where the famous Žlahtina white wine can be sampled everywhere you go. Krk town boasts a striking onion-domed Campanile, whilst the beaches of Baska are some of the best in Croatia (but do come with the expected crowds).
