Cres Island, Omisalj

(4.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Tucked away under big blue skies, Cres Island features a craggy coastline, densely populated forests, and cliffs yielding panoramic views. This quiet island has a natural allure and plenty of untouched landscape to discover. The thick woods that cover most of it provide a natural habitat for the protected griffon vulture. The island's prime source of income has long been sheep-rearing, with local lamb a culinary delicacy. Be sure to include a stop at the island's most famed point of interest, the medieval town of Lubenice. Our Krk Island trip generator makes visiting Cres Island and other Krk Island attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Nice and cold! With the bora camp we had very cold but the island is beautiful and wild, just avoid those crowded beaches and the rest is awsome the camping of valun is physically very demanding but waking up looking at the sea from the top and dive after one minute is priceless!

  • Even though in winter, the island and the town of CRES seem a little sleepy, so you should not fail to visit and enjoy the local specialities directly at the harbour in one of the restaurants or cafés.
