Island dreams on the Adriatic coast of Cres

The picture perfect island of Cres offers fairy tale beauty with its imposing cliffs, numerous small coves and bays leading to pristine beaches and the promise of adventure into old forests and villages dotted across the island. Prepare to be transported back in time, to an age of simpler living, where nature and human are intertwined and the simplest luxuries of life are celebrated.

A celebration of island living

Croatia, in Eastern Europe lies within easy reach of all of Western Europeans. The Balkan region has both a long and fascinating history, with Cres in particular holding many historically interesting sites to explore. Along with its rich history, the Cres has some of the most popular and spectacular beaches in this region. What better place for a holiday home island Cres than an island full of warmth, wilderness and delectable rustic cuisine?

An adventure into the Adriatic

The northern part of the island lies within a short boat ride from the mainland port city of Rijeka. Home to numerous small stone villages, Cres is a treasure trove of secluded bays and beaches, as well as beautiful fauna and flora; the ideal backdrop for a Cres island holiday apartment.

Tantalising tastes of the Balkans

Whilst Croatia is best known for its fantastic beaches and unbeatable summer weather, the local cuisine and warm Balkan spirit is something that many return for after visiting once. The coastal influence is evident in the numerous delectable seafood restaurants dotting the island, however, be sure to try common local delicacies along the way, like ćevapčići (small spicy pork sausages) too!

The medieval magic of Lubenice with the perfect island holiday apartment in Valun, Cres

Choose from a range of holiday apartments on Cres Island within the idyllic fishing town of Valun. Would you like to bring your four-legged friend too? There are lots of pet friendly options that will allow accommodation for everyone! Take a day trip to the partially abandoned, medieval, hilltop village of Lubenice, one of the most fascinating areas of Central Cres. Pass through narrow stone pathways littered with olive trees to explore buildings that seemingly disappear into their surroundings. With its high vantage point, the village offers spectacular views of the surroundings, and photography enthusiasts should definitely bring their equipment. Do not expect lush restaurants here, but rather a simple cafe or two. If local culture is your interest, check seasonal listings as during the long summer evenings, there are often concerts held here featuring well known local Croatian music stars. For the hiking and sea loving enthusiasts, the wonderfully secluded pebble beach of Lubenice is the reward for a steep hike down hill, although if this seems too much effort, sailing there is also possible from other areas of the island!

Escape reality with a trip to Mali Bok

One of the most well known spots on the Central Cres region of the island, it is recommended to go early if you wish to avoid the crowds; Mali Bok is famous for its pure white pebble beach that gives way to crystal clear and sparkling blue seas. The surrounding stone cliffs have made it an area popular with the adventurous types who enjoy cliff-jumping into the sea. Those interested in a more sedate day, can enjoy a simple swim or snorkel in the clear waters. The territory surrounding Mali Bok is a protected reserve and home to the endangered griffon vulture, the largest bird in Europe–so birdwatchers should keep their eyes to the skies! Although popular, there are no nearby cafes or restaurants at Mali Bok, giving you the perfect excuse to pre-prepare a picnic of delicious local cuisine. Access to the beach is via a rather steep hill though, so be sure not to over-pack non essentials!

Sleep with ancient history on an island holiday apartment in Osar, Cres

The small yet historic city of Osar in South Cres lies on the narrow border channel between the island of Cres and the island of Losinj that were once a single island. The origins of the city are thought to lie as far back as ninth century BC, and it has been ruled by Romans, Venetians and the Italians. For anyone interested in either history or the culture of the Balkans, a stay here is not only recommended–it's a must. The large selection of holiday apartments or houses on offer on the island of Cres ensures you the safety of choosing exactly what your holiday heart desires. The rich history provides a city containing meandering roads leading to historical monuments, museums and buildings at almost every corner.

An island holiday home in stone amongst a forest of dreams

Nature lovers should look towards North Cres, specifically in and around the region Tramuntana forest. A protected area, which holds enormous archaeological and natural wealth, the area is a truly spectacular setting for those wishing to truly immerse themselves in nature. The town of Beli set upon a hilltop and offering island holiday apartments or homes with rambling stone gardens, breath-taking sea views and immediate access to popular walking trails, Roman ruins and ancient monuments scattered around the region.

Destination sea, sand and sun

With all that the beautiful island of Cres has to offer, the only question remaining is how to get to your Cres island holiday home. Just a short flight from central London to Rijeka (approximately 3.5 hours), is all it takes. Moving across to Cres island is then possible via a myriad of ferries, boats or catamarans. If you wish to rent a car in Rijeka to travel easily around the island, car carrying ferries are available too. Although all ferries and boats run regularly in summer, be sure to time your flight with the ferry times to ensure the quickest entry onto the island.

Enjoy the endless island season

Croatia has become one of Europeans most popular summer destinations. Travelling during the peak summer months of July, August will ensure long, hot days, warm nights and plenty of time in the sea. If you plan on going during this time, it is advisable reserve your island holiday apartment on Cres early. Also, be on the look out for the numerous concerts and events that many cities and villages will be hosting throughout summer.

For those who prefer a slightly quieter atmosphere and want to travel out of peak season; the island's beautiful weather means you can still enjoy your holiday apartment on Cres island in the late spring to early autumn.

    “Cres stad heeft een leuk haventje waar het 's avonds heel gezellig wordt met kraampjes en terrasjes.Je kunt hier ook verschillende souvenirs kopen. Osor is een aanrader. Er is daar heel veel te zien. Losinj is heel eenvoudig met een kleine brug vanuit Osor bereikbaar. Wij vonden Losinj veel mooier en de mensen waren er ook veel vriendelijker. Bezoek hier zeker Mali Losinj en Veli Losinj (klein authentiek stadje met gekleurde huisjes en een pittoresk centrum met haventje). Dolfijnen hebben we er niet gezien. Er zijn wel veel eilanden te bezoeken per (taxi-)boot. Cres zelf vonden wij minder mooi, erg ruig wat natuur betreft en de mensen moeten hier volgens ons nog best wennen aan de overstroming van toeristen. Je kunt hier wel heel goed fietsen. Er zijn vele wandelwegen en fietspaden te vinden.”

    “Sehr schöne Orte: Cres, Mali Losinj, Pernat, Valun, Veli Losinj. Teilweise Spitzengastronomie VALUN-gostilna "Na Moru"-Mamalu traumhaft. Traumhafte Promenade, super Bademöglichkeiten fast in allen Orten. Für Selbstversorger sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Plodina, Konzum usw. Wir werden wieder kommen.”
