Kvarner Gulf

Island-dotted region in the north

Kvarner Gulf

The region of Kvarner, referred to often as the Kvarner Gulf or Kvarner Bay, has been attracting global visitors for years. This region is something of a green oasis, with its islands mostly covered with lush mountains and forests. Cres, Losinj and Rab make up the main islands in Kvarner. They all offer a beauty of their own kind, but what they all have in common is a sprinkling of historic towns, stunning coves and gorgeous beaches. 

The agate-blue ocean is home to many dolphins and turtles, and opting for an island-hopping trip is one of the best ways to spot them. Back on dry land, many of the islands take on a laid-back way of life where you can while away summer afternoons sipping coffee in narrow alleyways and watching the world go by. Alternatively, those lush mountains and forests are a haven for cyclists and walkers.

Flight Information

When to go

July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit. It's less busy, plus the weather tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).


Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 15 kuna or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
