We've been working on our itinerary for our 3 week adventure coming up in Aug-Sept, which I'll share very soon for feedback...but right now, I'm wondering about Krk?
After spending 4 nights in Rovinj and enjoying everything that Istria has to offer (which is very much our "speed") - we are looking for a stopping point before getting to Zadar, then on down the rest of the coast... and I was thinking about maybe chilling in Krk for two nights. We'll leave Rovinj in the morning, maybe swing by Hum, Opatija and Rijeka, before landing in Krk, for two nights. The thought is that we'd have a full day to go exploring, perhaps find some secluded getaway beach/hiking area and get some R&R.
Does anybody have any wonderful hidden gems that they have found or heard about in Krk? There's not a lot written about it really... What area should be actually look for lodging in? Is there anything that we should make sure and see or do there?
We also looked at heading to Cres, maybe that would be materially better? It looks like Krk to Zadar would be about 3:45, driving down the coast. Cres to Zadar looks more like 5 hours...
I think we're looking for some of the feel of the "islands" without all the people or the "busy" that it sounds like a lot of the more popular islands have.
I love reading this forum and am so thankful to everyone who participates, I learn so much! We took a trip to Italy in 2016 and got exceptional advice! Thanks, in advance, for your thoughts!
