Šilo on the Island of Krk: beaches & sights

Founded in the not so distant past, Šilo is a small town on the northeastern coast of the island of Krk, on the opposite shore of Crikvenica. Until the Krk Bridge was built, a ferry line connected Šilo and the island’s inhabitants to mainland Crikvenica, and today frequent taxi boats speed along the same route in about 20 minutes. Šilo is a perfect place for a relaxing family vacation. Accommodation is available in many apartments, holiday homes and rooms in private houses. The beaches are well-kept, pebbly and partly paved, and offer a variety of sports facilities. Šilo is also a favorite destination for scuba divers who, among other things, can explore the sunken Greek ship Peltastis. Sights worth mentioning are tunera at Punta Šilo, a wooden watchtower with a ladder for tuna fishing, as well as the remains of a Byzantine fort/observation post from the 6th century. Near Šilo, one can visit Soline Bay, known for its healing mud which alleviates various forms of arthritis and has a therapeutic effect on skin diseases. Soline Bay was named after the salt pans that date back to the Roman era. Overlooking Soline Bay is Dobrinj, a picturesque town rich in history worth exploring. We also highly recommend visiting the Biserujka cave, located on the north-west coast of the island of Krk.
