 View from Rijeka to Istria and Cres Opatija


High temperatures, that are common in Rijeka for few weeks, will be heating us for next seven days at least. See here detailed weather forecast for Rijeka

Also, sea temperature is high and perfect for swimming. We reccommend following beaches in Rijeka and surrounding areas:
Kantrida (western part of town – concrete, pebble)
Opatija (15km from Rijeka – concrete, pebble)
Kostrena (5km from Rijeka – lots of small, hidden, pebble beaches)




There are also beautiful beaches on island Krk and Cres, Mošćenićka Draga (small village on Istrian coast) and toward Senj – southern from Rijeka. To reach them we recommend bus lines.

Here is schedule: bus company – “Autotrans”

Island Krk is with bridge connected to mainland, but Cres can be reached with ferry boats from two sides:
1. Brestova – Porozina (ferry boat line from Istrian peninsula)
2. Valbiska – Merag (ferry boat line from island Krk)

Here is schedule: ferry boat company – “Jadrolinija”
