Boat ride trough the Islands with Lunch: Cruise to the island of Cres for a hearty fish picnic and discover a series of stunning small fishing villages along the way. This delightful full day excursion is a feast for the eyes. See coastal landscapes of breathtaking beauty. Explore a rustic island and wander through remote villages –all while breathing in the fresh Adriatic air. This exhilarating excursion takes in Opatija, Lovran, Mošenika Draga and Cres. Join us and enjoy a magical combination of cultural heritage and untouched nature.
Cres is one of the more than 1,200 islands in the Dalmatian archipelago – of which fewer than 70 are inhabited. In prehistoric times, Cres was linked to the mainland but the end of the ice age meant that it and neighbouring Lošinj – they are separated just by a few metres – became islands rather than the peaks of erstwhile mountains.
The cruise departs the picture-postcard harbour of Opatija, making its way along the rugged limestone coastline to lovely Lovran harbour and then on to small fishing village of Mošenika Draga. This part of the journey lasts an hour before then sailing to Cres itself. On arrival at the island, enjoy free time to explore at your own pace. You can go for a swim in the crystal- clear waters or hike to the picturesque hillside hamlet of Beli, which boasts gorgeous views over the coastline.
