Tourism in Cres

Cres Island is the one of the largest islands of the Adriatic. It is connected by ferry from Istria (line Brestova - Porozina) and the island Krk (ferry Valbiska - Merag). Famous natural phenomenon on the island is the freshwater lake Vrana. Cres Island is the habitat of protected species of griffon vultures, which are unfortunately an endangered species. On the island we recommend a visit to the city museum Osor, a small town near the bridge that connects the islands of Cres and Losinj. One of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Cres is the beach at Sveti Ivan (Saint John) near Lubenice. Lubenice is one of the first inhabited places of the island. Built on the cliff 387m above the sea. Another place not to be missed is Valun: a small town surrounded by sandy beaches and coves. But the most important and most known town on the island with a large marina is town Cres. In each of the mentioned town and villages you will find private apartments to rent. As there are not many make sure you do your booking in time!
