  • Beach Jert – our favourite and closest beach to the Villa, cca. 5-10 min. drive, it is a pebble beach with a Blue flag located in the small village Pinezići. Beach has a bar and a restaurant so you can enjoy drinks and the simple dishes in a bathing suit. Beach also offers water park, sun loungers, parasols, sanitary nodes and changing cabins.

Active holidays

There are also plenty of activities to choose from; rent-a-boat, diving, hiking, cycling, quad biking, zip-line, horse riding, daily boat trips…, you can find more information here



We would recommend taking boat excursions to the nearby islands. There are a lot of boats to choose from - you can book them along the Krk city promenade.

We recommend the boat “Riba T” - they offer one-day tours where you can join fisherman while they catch fish with those huge nets. When fishing is complete, you will enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear waters while they prepare fresh fish for you on the boat. They tend to go in a smaller group, cca 20 people.

If you enjoy walking, running or hiking, Krk has a lot to offer. There is a nice route from Vrh to Krk, which should take you about 1 hour one way.

The island of Krk has several cycling trails that go along the main road on the island, so you can safely ride through most of the island without fear of cars. On the other hand, if you are looking for nature and MTB adventures, the island offers you nearly 300km of pedestrian/bike trails that can be used for cycling.

You will find good selection of fish in the centre of Krk at the fish store (ribarnica). Note that the best selection is in the morning, so try to be there before 9am.

You can get quality meat at any grocery shop, but for a fresh local meat go to the butcher shops (mesnica) in the centre of Krk, inside supermarket building you will find a few, we recommend "Mesnica Toma".

If you need pharmacy (ljekarna) you will find it on the Krk main square - Ljekarna Jelka. Drug store Farmacia is located above Konzum store at the entrance of the town.
