Info

Welcome to Punat, the second largest place on the Kvarner island of Krk, connected to the mainland by the Krcki bridge. Punat lies on the south-east part on the picturesque and green Puntarska draga (a small bay), also known as Kosljunska draga, and is only 7 km from the town of Krk. At one time well-know for shipbuilding, Punat is nowadays one the leading marinas on the Croatian Adriatic.

It has a well-equipped large marina, a must for all those sailing the eastern Adriatic, excellent swimming areas surrounded by rich vegetation, hotels and private accommodation and various sporting facilities: tennis, mini golf, boccie, diving, sailing, underwater and sports fishing, diving and sailing courses.

We recommend Punat to all of those who enjoy sailing, active holidays and various types of entertainment. A place worth visiting is the small wooded island of Kosljun placed in the middle of the shallow Puntarska draga. A Franciscan monastery, built on the ruins of a Roman villa, can be seen on the island.
