Omisalj, Croatia - holiday information

Omisalj, Krk, Croatia – visitor information

Situated 6km after the Krk Bridge, and only 5 km from the Rijeka airport Omisalj lies in a wonderful bay while the settlement centre lies on a 85m high cliff. The settlement is where the Adriatic oil pipelines and the petrochemical plants are located but they operate in respect to the highest ecological standards. Except for its clear sea and wonderful nature, Omisalj will astonish you with its rich cultural and historic heritage which is represented by numerous monuments. Be sure to take a look at the remains of an old Christian basilica from the 5th century in the Stepen cove only 2km away from Omisalj where a roman settlement of Fulfinum used to stand. If you happen to find yourself in Omisalj on the16th of August you will have an opportunity to be a part of the local festival Stomorina and see the performance of local folklore ensembles. Omisalj takes pride in its gravely beach Pesja that has been adorned with the blue flag for several years now. The beach is ideal for vacationing with children and for the lovers of more serene beaches we recommend some of the coves in the vicinity. Because of the mentioned natural and cultural beauties and top class tourist offer, Omisalj has become in recent years one of the favourite vacationing destinations. Numerous visitors can find accommodation in hotels and private apartments and rooms. Except for sunbathing and swimming, while staying in Omisalj you can entertain yorurself by engaging in various sport activities, strolling down the park Dubec with arranged walking paths surrounded by vegetation and exploring the island delicacies. Be sure to taste the island lamb, fish specialities such as the traditional fish stew brudet and homemade olive oil, and if you have a sweet tooth try presnac the traditional cheese cake. You can try all these delicacies in taverns out of which we recommend tavern Ulikva. For evening entertainment we suggest you go to the nearby Njivice, Malinska or Rijeka that have a richer night life offer.
