Punat - Tourist destination info


Along the road, almost right along the seashore, a few kilometres from the Town of Krk, we find Punat,  a small town situated in the wide and protected bay of the same name. Thanks to its favourable location, it is well known for its unique marina, the largest on the Adriatic.
Besides the marina(...) this is a region with deep roots in agriculture and olive growing, and the only oil works on the island producing high quality olive oil is located in Punat. Although it is new and modern, it has a long tradition, and the old oil works building is also one of the oldest buildings in the town. Over the past few years tourists have been invited to take part in the olive harvest.
On the landscaped beaches, whether with gravel or partially in concrete, to be found towards the way out of Puntarska draga, there is probably the greatest number of attractions and recreational activities linked to the sea on offer on the entire island of Krk. Here there are cafes, water slides, beach volleyball, table tennis, boats for hire, water scooters, parachutes... If you are good in water-skis you can easily have a great deal of fun, for (...) ski -lift which is right on the road at the bottom of Puntarska draga. For an "out-ing" on water-skis, on one or two skis, it is necessary to part with a little money and hold tight to the line! 
If you are bored with all the attractions and modern entertainment, the sea, salt and crowds of people... peace, quiet and a beautiful view may be found on one of the marked footpaths above Punat. with a little effort you can reach one of the not so unattainable peaks, whatever they may look like from below.
The small island of Košljun is a unique cultural and historical site which one should be sure to visit during one's stay on Krk. It is to be found in Puntarska draga, about 800 m from Punat and about 190 from the coast of Sv. Mikula (towards Krk). It may be reached , for a reasonable cost, by taxi boat from Punat, and during the tourist season there are also boats from Krk. There are no catering estasblishments on the island, so iz makes an ideal short outing lasting from one to several hours, depending on your wishes and transport arrangements. The curcumference of the island, which is covered in dense vegatation, is a little more than thousand metres, it has a surface area of 68 thousand square meters, and its highest point is 6 metres above sea level. On this relatively small surface area, there are 540 species of plants and fungi registered. There is a Franciscan monastery on Košljun where the monks have hidden valuable items collected over many centuries and kept them until the present day.
