Beaches in Vrbnik
Here we bring you descriptions of some nice beaches in Vrbnik and surroundings. You will find a good overview of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Krk here: https://enjoykrk.com/en/krk-beaches
- The main town beach in Vrbnik is called Zgribnica. Zgribnica is a pebble beach in a cove 10 minutes walk from the center of Vrbnik. There is a catering establishment with an offer of drinks, ice-cream, and food (grill). The beach has a toilet, a shower and there is a possibility of renting parasols, sunbeds and pedal-boats. Pets are not allowed on the beach.
- There is another lovely beach we would like to recommend to our guests – Kozica. Kozica is a small pebble and rock beach situated in a small cove hidden in a pine grove, 10 minutes walk from Zgribnica beach and 15 minutes walk from the center. A nice stroll through the pine grove, starting from the topmost part of Vajavina car park (in the end of Supec street, just above Zgribnica) will take you there.
- There is another small beach beneath high rocks in Vrbnik harbor - Pod Kovač. It is right next to the breakwater (with the red signal station). A short passage through a rock leads to this beach which is insolated only during forenoon when particularly pleasant for bathing.
- We warmly recommend you beach called Potovošće, a beautiful pebble beach in picturesque cove ca 2 km south of Vrbnik. A popular Croatian weekly „Globus“ placed this beach in the top 50 most beautiful unknown beaches of Croatian Adriatic. You can reach Potovošće by an asphalted road at the end of which is a spacy car park (parking fee is charged during summer). There is a catering establishment (drinks & fast food) on the beach. The simplest way to reach Potovošće is to go up Grohot street (an uphill street starting at the end of the central car park - minimarket „Supec“ should be on your left, and hairdresser's „Ivana“ on your right) and just keep going straight uphill. The road will take you out of Vrbnik, through olive groves, and shortly you will reach a crossroad where you should turn left and follow the road. One more possibility to reach Potovošće is to exit Vrbnik by the main road, turn left by Katunar Winery and just keep heading straight. This road is only partly asphalted but good for driving.
- Cca 7 km north-east from Vrbnik, in village Risika, there is a very nice sand beach near Sv.Marek (St.Marcus) peninsula.
- 15 km from Vrbnik, in the north-east part of the island, there is a bay with medicinal mud - Soline Bay.
- Dogs and other pets are not allowed on most of the above-mentioned beaches. We will gladly recommend you small beaches and coves where you can take your pets for a swim. There is also an official dog beach 2,5 km from Vrbnik in the direction Risika, near the sandy beach of St. Marek
- There are many beautiful beaches and coves in Vrbnik area that can be reached only by sea, taxi boats can take you there. We suggest you go for a panoramic taxi boat ride and swim on the beautiful hidden beaches.

Approximately 2 nm south from Vrbnik is cape Tenki. At 15m depth in a 10m long tunnel can be seen red gorgonians - visibility is good, currents are weak. An excellent diving-spot, suitable for all diving categories. "Vrbnik's cave", wide, 20m deep room is 100m to the right from an entrance to the port. An endemic variety of goby fish (Kolombatić) was found in the cave.

In addition, there are several attractive sunken shipwrecks in the area, the closest to us is the Greek ship Peltasis in Silo.
