Southeastern part of the island is higher and mostly bare. The highest peak of the Island Obzova also lies here, reaching 569 m in hight. Northeast coast is steep, a little broken and exposed to strong wind.

Baška is one of the most attractive destinations on the Croatian Adriatic coast, mostly because of its 2km-long natural pebbly beach which has been proclaimed one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Baška is situated at the far south-east end of the island of Krk, which is Croatia’s biggest island and also its closest one to the mainland, 43 km from the Krk Bridge. Being only a few hours distant from major European cities makes it an interesting destination not only for summer vacations, but also for weekend breaks and other holidays throughout the year.
Baška is like a masterpiece water-colour painting, anchored in a bay against a green background, spilling its white rocks along the shore, the colours merging with Baška’s bright facades, red roofs, old stone steps, wooden shutters and little white boats caressing the shores.
Baška’s stunning natural semi-circular beach overlooks the Velebit mountain range and the islet.
