Punat is the nautical and tourist centre of the island of Krk. Located in the bay of Punat, and offering natural protection from the harshness of the open sea, it is a paradise for surfers and sailors, with the largest and well equipped marina in this part of the Adriatic.
The architecture of the stone houses and narrow streets make Punat a typical coastal village and it is surrounded by fertile olive groves, vines and a lovely swimming area. The olive oil from Punat is of very high quality, confirmed by the tourist-gastronomic event Days of Olives, where visitors can enjoy the top quality tastes of pristine nature.
A little gem sits in the heart of the bay of Punat– the wonderful little island of Košljun, with a Franciscan monastery and a church with a library, ethnographic museum and collection of sacral arts.
The rich tourist offer, which includes excellent accommodation and a whole series of cultural, entertainment and sports and recreational facilities, places Punat at the top of the tourist offer.
The golden or green Krk is an island and yet it is not one. Its idyllic nature and quiet far from the daily routine make it an island, but considering the transport connection, it practically is not one.
