The Golden Isle of the Mediterranean

Aug 18, 2007
A house on the sea shore must be a wonderful thing to own. You can laze around on the beach. You can go for a swim in the cool waters. If you are the adventurous type, you can try scuba diving, wind surfing or water skiing. If you are more of a poet, then you can simply sit and contemplate on life as a glorious sunset. If you have children, or are hoping to reacquaint yourself with the child within you, you can try collecting the shells brought in by a gentle tide. Beach getaways generally are a great place to bring the whole family.

The island of Krk off the coast of Croatia is one such place. Located in the Kvarner Gulf, the island of Krk also goes by the name of "Golden Island". One look at the place will definitely answer why. If you are looking for sun, sea, and superb hospitality, this island is a terrific spot for holiday-goers everywhere. It has beautiful natural landscapes that could win you photography contests. The waters of the Mediterranean are crystal clear and great to swim in. Lush greenery and gentle bays greet anyone who has been lucky enough to spend time here.

Of course, the stunning scenery is not the only great thing. The island of Krk boasts of several towns that were born during Roman times, such as the town of Omislaj in the north of the island. Punat, towards the south, is well known for its sophisticated marinas and the major regattas it hosts each year, while Baska, in the east of the island, is well-known for its world-class beaches. For those more interested in nightlife and food, the popular tourist resort of Malinska offers a plethora of lively nightclubs and restaurants.

If you like to fish, or have no qualms in trying out different types of seafood, this is a great place to be in. The Kvarner Gulf is home to a wide range of fish. In and around the island you can find sea bass, bream and sardines through to squid and octopus, or any of the other types of seafood that is eaten here. The people in general are very friendly and hospitable, and will advise you on the fare that you should be sampling, or indeed, where the best fishing is to be found.

The island of Krk is gaining popularity among tourists looking out for unspoilt islands and secluded beaches. However, the great thing about this Central European Island is that it is very well-linked to other countries of Europe. The international airport of Rijeka is actually located on the northern part of the island, and services mainland Croatia via a spectacular bridge, as well as by ferry. Moreover, Krk is quite close to the other Mediterranean countries. If you like, you could visit nearby Venice in Italy, or alternatively simply drive over to Vienna.

Personally, I would love to be the owner of some property in a place like this. Moreover, the island of Krk is growing in importance as a good place to invest in. Krk has already become a tourists' paradise. Now, it is aspiring to charm "holiday home" seekers to invest in property there. Certainly, a lot of us would be interested in taking that up.
