Visit Croatia's beautiful islands on the Adriatic Sea. The tiny island of Krk is connected by bridge to the Croatian mainland. Its soft hills are bathed in sunshine and hidden beaches and bays can be discovered even during the height of the tourist season. The local ferry takes you to the islands of Cres and Mali Losinj where even more abundant beaches offer privacy and if you are lucky, a glimpse of the rare vultures crossing the mountains of this delightful European hinterland.
