4. Diving

The crystal-clear waters around Krk Island are teeming with an abundance of marine life. Scuba diving and snorkeling here unveils an exhilarating underwater landscape filled with intriguing rocky formations, multiple caves of all different sizes such as Bug Cave, Deep Cave and Blue Malin Cave, and dramatic steep drop-offs, such as Selzin, that descend into the azure depths. The peak diving season in Krk lies between May and September when the waters are the most calm, the most clear and the warmest, with the least amount of rain and the least amount of currents.

5. Sailing

Embark on a sailing adventure and experience the beauty of the Adriatic Sea up close. Sailing around Krk Island allows you to discover secluded bays, the nearby island, and the breathtaking cliffs. Whether you're a novice or an experienced sailor, the conditions at Krk are ideal for a thrilling yet serene sailing experience. Depart from the well-equipped marinas in the historic towns of Krk or Punat. Sail northward to the coastal towns of Klimno and Silo, perfect for a tranquil lunch stop. Or head westwards to Stara Baška, renowned for its secluded coves and clear waters ideal for a refreshing dip. Don't miss a trip to the untouched islets of Plavnik and Prvić or a multi-day sailing tour around the Kvarner Bay and its surrounding islands, including Cres, Lošinj, Rab, and Pag. With several yacht rental companies and sailing schools on Krk Island, a memorable sailing adventure awaits, filled with natural beauty and the excitement of navigation.
