It is located in a quiet area, where our canine friends can run freely, without our fear, that they will cause any problems. While you are walking pass the doggy beach, you can see the so called Tunera. This is a wooden fishing lookout tower with a ladder, evoking the memory of the days when tuna was one of the main sources of income in fishing activities, and during the wars, almost guaranteed the survival of the local population.

Sv. Marek – Risika: If you are looking for a sandy beach, then visit the beach of St. Mark, which will from the center of Vrbnik take about 15 minutes by car. Just before the beach there is parking which in the peak season cost around (20kun). If you are more active you can visit the beach on foot and rather spend your money in one of the two bars located on this beautiful, natural sandy beach in a sheltered bay. Directly on the sandy beach there is no shade, but there is a green lawn just next to it covered with a few small trees, and there is the possibility to rent umbrellas and deckchairs. Near the beach there is a small hill with chapel of “Sveti marks” with a beautiful view of the continent. On the other side you can as well find a nice rocky beach, which is suitable for snorkeling and jumping from the cliffs.

Bay Slivanjska: Only a few minutes away from one of the major attractions of island Krk, Biserujka cave, you can walk along the well-marked path to Slivanjska bay, some people say that it has one of the most beautiful beaches. You can decide that on you own. In the last century, the idea was, that in the place, where now we can see the stone remains they would build a “white hotel” but unfortunately that was just one of unfinished ideas. In my opinion, those white stone remains are the ones who brings some special charm to the bay.
