Baška is one of the best known tourist resorts on the Island of Krk, the Adriatic’s largest Island.
Krk’s position in the northern part of the Croatian Adriatic makes it the closest island to Central Europe. Baška’s favourable location has ensured its continuous growth and prosperity, as well as a distinctive place in the tourist scene, making the town one of the most popular tourist destinations of the Adriatic.
The town is located in a gentle valley/bay surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and flowering broom, with a picturesque background of Velebits' rocky mountains and the island of Prvić, which shelter Baskas' unique long pebbly beach, justly said to be one of the loveliest in the Adriatic.
You will be deeply impressed by the wealth of unspoilt nature. Baška has all the characteristics of the Mediterranean climate – pleasant springs, warm summers with little rainfall, gentle autumns and cold windy winters.
In the summer, sea temperature can rise up to 25 C, and the swimming season lasts from May to October.
The location of the Krk Island at the northern most part of the Adriatic makes it the "first" and the closest island for all visitors who come from the continental part of Europe in search for the Mediterranean atmosphere. In the 1980s, the extremely convenient location of Krk Island was helped by the addition of a strategic structure: a mile long Krk Bridge which connects the Island Krk to the mainland. As an easily accessible island with the international airport, Krk will certainly be an excellent choice for all tourists in search of escape from crowdedness, busyness and stress of the big cities.
The Island of Krk is a diverse island that offers variety of attractions and experiences, whether you like the culture, the nature or the upbeat tourist places: a thousand years old towns, small rural villages, well equipped city beaches,
secluded swimming bays, lively bars and clubs and small and quiet restaurants and caffe bars. Island of Krk is also a perfect place to learn about the heritage of Croatia.
The environment protection measures are being conducted continuously and systematically. To confirm this, there are numerous blue flags fluttering on the Island of Krk beaches: in the city of Krk, Baška, Baška, Nivice, Omišalj and the Punat Marina. For almost 13 years now, the sea and coastal environment protection program, the Blue Flag Program
(for beaches and marinas), has been successfully implemented in Europe.
The Blue Flag symbolizes a preserved, safe and pleasant environment intended for vacation, entertainment and recreation, a well-defined coastal zone management system and sustainable tourism development. Being awarded the Blue Flag means excellent tourism promotion for a beach or a marina based on a high level of service quality, the cleanness of the sea and the coastal area, and the equipment and amenities provided on the beach.
Baška is surrounded with around thirty pebble beaches that are accessible to swimmers of all generations.
The biggest and most beautiful one is Baška’s Vela Plaža, the Big Beach, right in the centre of town, backed by bars, restaurants, pizzerias, cafés, hotels, private apartments and other tourist facilties.
On the beach you can rent pedal boats, windsurfers, parasols, sunloungers and other things to help you spend an enjoyable and carefree time on the beach.
The craggy coastal landscape in the surrounding area of Baška is captivating and attracts many visitors. In order for lovers of mountain heights to be able to enjoy walking and hiking in the countryside, the tourist trails of Baška have been tidied up and signposted. There are a total of 19, which have a total length of over 80 km.
There are both easy and difficult demanding trails, so that everyone can choose a trail according to their abilities, desires and mood. When you reach the peaks, you will be offered a breathtaking view from one of the beautiful viewpoints.

Fresh fish, scampi and other crustaceans and shellfish are still today unchangeable in an islanders' home cooking, as well as lots of vegetable side dishes. A holiday lunch will almost always include meals made from home-made pasta (šurlice, macaroni, gnocchi) with different sauces.
