There is no doubt that Croatia has become THE place to spend your vacation in, for all partygoers, history buff and families alike. Here on the Island of Krk we pride ourselves as a family destination, and how could we not? With safe beaches, amusement parks and aquariums, Island of Krk offers plenty of entertainment for those traveling with babies, children and teens.
Spending the day on the beach and enjoying the evening breeze while sitting in a delicious restaurant by the seaside may sound like heaven for you, but your children will want a bit more excitement on their holiday. So here are a couple of fun, family friendly activities that will bring out the smile on your little one's faces, as well as yours.
Underwater Pirate Park Punat is a unique attraction that one must experience when visiting the Island of Krk! Experience the ultimate sensation where time stops, worries fade away and breathing underwater becomes possible. If you still want to spend a day in an amusement park, but not necessarily under the water, Lunapark Malinska is the place for you. This is the kind of place where you and the children can spend a few hours enjoying water slides and a game room with table football, billiards, pinball and other games.
On the island of Krk there’s a whole underwater world waiting for you in the shape of aquariums! The City of Krk will deliver not one, but 2 colorful experiences that your family will remember! The first one is Aquarium Terrarium Krk, and as the name suggests, besides the 20 large aquariums with fish from the fresh waters of Croatia there is also a Terrarium where iguana, panther chameleon, ball python and Komodo dragon are waiting to see you. After viewing all the fish native to Croatia, hop into the nearby Tropical Aquarium Krk, which features marine flora and fauna from all over the world. You can marvel upon stunning tropical fish, including sharks and piranhas, as well as discover dazzling corals
But if you are staying in Baška, a small but popular resort town on the Island, there is no need to drive to Krk City to view all the magnificent fish as there is also the Baška Aquarium. It shows the Adriatic Sea life in all of its abundance, diversity, and color. You can explore more than 100 species of Adriatic fish and 400 species of mussels, making it the largest collection of Adriatic mussels and snails in Croatia.
Looking for an Island activity that doesn't involve water and fish, but at the same time it's in nature, accompanied by animals? Experience the adventure of horseback riding in Equestrian club Njivice! Let your children hop on and enjoy their time as little cowboys or medieval princesses. There are riding ponies for the younger ones and for all children over 3 here are regular, large horses.
