PUNAT - Located on the south side of the island Krk in one of the most beautiful bays on the Adriatic with the miniature island Košljun in its centre. This little town is proud of having the oldest marina on the Adriatic.
Punat is located in the southern part of the island Krk and is situated in one of the nicest and most protected bays on the Adriatic, Puntarska draga, whose centre is a miniature island Košljun – a valuable oasis that, within the Franciscan monastery, has preserved the cultural and natural heritage. Therefore it is not surprising that many visitors are keen to spend their holidays here. The Košljun can be reached only by boat.
Punat is extremely charming, gathered along the small tight streets that lead to typical coastal houses with charming taverns. Punat - once known as a boat dock and the headquarters of powerful steamship companies – is now a popular tourist destination, due to excursions and tourist valorisation of Košljun island's attractions, and one of the largest and best equipped marinas on the eastern Adriatic coast.
In Punat, sailors will feel particularly welcome as the largest and oldest marina on the Adriatic is located here. It can accommodate about 1 200 vessels.
