When we talk about the caves of Krk, the cave Biserujka is definitely the most famous one. It is a coastal cave, located on the northern part of the island. It is open for all visitors and it is surrounded by a fenced walking trail.

The cave is filled with flowstones and stalactites that are beautifully lighted for the visitors. It consists out of 7 halls and rooms that you can see from the walking trail. All together 6 endemic kinds were revealed in the cave, and also the remains of extinct cave bear (24.000 years)!

2. Underwater cave in Vrbnik

This beautiful undersea cave is located near the city of Vrnik. It is accessible only to the trained divers because the entrance to the cave is 15 meters deep. The cave itself is 30 meters long and is partly lighted with a surface hole.

3. Love cave (blue cave) - Plavnik

Even though this cave is not located on Krk, but on the small island of Plavnik, it is a very famous destination for the tourists. A small entrance to this coastal cave is located on the sea side.
