That autumn does not always show its golden side is nothing new. If you can not get any fog or raincoat, you should simply extend the summer! The summer is far from over in the Kvarner Bay in Croatia …
It is autumn in Germany . Rain, fog and uncomfortable temperatures often determine the days. Some mourn some of the warm summer afterwards. If you feel a few warm sunbeams on your skin and maybe want to jump into the water again, you can extend your summer in the Kvarner Bay on the Croatian Adriatic .
Sun and sea instead of rain and fog
Nestled between Istria and the Croatian coast, the bay enjoys around 2,500 hours of sunshine a year. From Munich it is only 500 kilometers to the deep blue shimmering sea of the Croatian Adriatic . The temperature of the water is still pleasant 22 degrees until October.
Once you have arrived there is now a free choice: rather a tour through the impressive coastal towns of Crikvenica , Novi Vinodolski and Opatija ? Or rather island hopping over Rab , Krk , Cres and Losinj? For the less decision-taking among the sunbathers offers a combination. Why not take a leisurely stroll through the old town in Rab on Rab ?
Next to it is exactly right
The 94 km² small island can also be explored on the bike – 180 kilometers of well-constructed cycle paths lead to endless sandy beaches. And best of all, the otherwise popular coasts around Lopar in the north are no longer crowded at this time of the year.
Wonderfully relax on Krk . The island capital of the same name is also suitable for a beach holiday in the low season. Right on the beach promenade extend rocky and pebble bays, which are further and further away to the east. For married togetherness just the thing!
More than just sea
If you do not want to lie flat on the beach, you should visit the limestone cave Biserujka near Rudine. In addition to stalagmites in the form of cypresses, according to tradition, there is a treasure of an old smuggler who could not be recovered until today …
Everywhere in the Kvarner Bay lure small cafes and restaurants with local treats. Café Wagner in Opatija has its own chocolate brand. On Cres you can taste local cheese and ham in the Lubenicka Loza. Fish specialties such as “Scarpina u pecnici” (Red Dragon’s Head in Olive Oil) and “Crni Rizoto” (Squid Risotto) are everywhere anyway.
If you want to pay a visit to the sunny starlet of the low season, raincoat and scarf can be safely hung in the closet.
