Beaches and coves
Punat and Stara Baška are popular for their beautiful beaches situated in the immediate vicinity of the town and only accessible by boat. Punat has its town beach within Puntarska draga (Punat Bay), suitable for children and seniors, with improved access to the sea, shallow water and protective barriers for the bathers. As soon as you leave the bay, you will find gravelly beaches – a landmark of our island. The beaches are numerous and a bather will always find a spot, while the leisure time can be spent on sporting activities offered on the beach (water sports, beach volley, windsurfing, ski-lift, paragliding, jet ski, aqua park...).
Visitors to Punat arriving by a vessel will find the coves between Punat and Stara Baška interesting for the wonderful secluded gravelly beaches and crystal-clear sea. You can reach them by a taxi boat from the harbor. Peace and quiet prevail in an intact nature. Make sure you try bathing early in the morning when the first rays of sun shine down upon the crystal-clear sea. A truly unique experience!
Stara Baška, situated only 9 km from Punat, is the place popular for its beaches, visited by numerous tourists. Anyway, take a look at our photos and see for yourself...
