It is located in the southeastern part of the island of Krk and it takes 10-15 minutes to get there with our taxi boat. The bay is about 1.8 km long and 400 meters wide.

In the area between Vela Luka and Mala Luka, which is called Bosar, there was a Roman settlement in ancient times. It was obviously used to oversee the strategically important Senj Gate. The remains of Roman clay and counterfeit Roman coins were found in this area. It is reportedly also found something of Byzantine money, which is in favor of the theory that even in the time of Byzantine rule on Krk there was also a settlement that in the local legends has the name Corinthia. In addition, the ruins of the Byzantine fortress from the time of Emperor Justinian (6th century) on the hill above the remains of this settlement are also ruins. In the Bosar area are the ruins of the church of St. Nicholas first mentioned in 1426.
Bay Vela Luka and Mala Luka are considered one of the most beautiful coves in the Adriatic.
Just a kilometer away from the Vela Luka bay, surrounded by grasslands and sheeps, lies the bay of Mala Luka, which has a special pastoral-rarity charm. Nearby is the top of Corinth, from where a beautiful view of both gulfs extends.
In Mala Luka you may also find a small restaurant if you wish to eat some fresh fish on the grill.
It is located 10-15 minutes drive with our taxi boat. Prvić is an uninhabited island located southeast of Krk, separated from it by Senjska vrata (eng. Senj Passage). Prvić has an area of 12,76 km2 which makes it the 30th largest Croatian island. On the island is located the automatic Stražica Lighthouse and near it is cape Brezonjin.
Prvić’s highest peak is Šipovac (357 m above sea level). Although most of the island is inaccessible as its coastal areas are made up of steep barren cliffs 250–300 m high, on the west coast there are dozen private sandy beaches suitable for swimmers, along with the largest southwestern beach Njivica with traces of a medieval settlement owned by Frankopan.
Although the island is uninhabited, it is frequently used by shepherds for pasture and by local beekeepers who keep apiaries on the island. On the island you may also see Griffon vultures, a protected bird species, which are known to breed at Prvić. In addition, there are 17 species of endemic plants which grow on the island. Because of this the island of Prvić is protected as a special botanical and ornithological reserve from 1972.
SV. GRGUR ISLAND
Sveti Grgur is uninhabited island between Rab and Krk. Located 7 km away from the mainland and 1 km away from nearest village Lopar on island Rab. Its surface is 6,7 km² and it’s mostly covered with forest which make it as the most wooded island on Kvarner.
In the northwest bay of Sv. Grgur are ruins of building and a port of Porat. Earlier on the island people were digging bauxite and in recent times this island was leased as a hunting lodge of deer. From 1948. until 1988. the island of Sveti Grgur was used as a women prison in Yugoslavia.

Goli Otok is a barren, uninhabited island that was the site of a political prison which was in use when Croatia was part of Yugoslavia. The prison was in operation between 1948. and 1988. It is located between the north-eastern part of the island of Rab and the land coast in the northern part of the Velebit Channel with an area of approximately 4,5 km2. West of it is the island of Sveti Grgur and the northernmost island of Prvić. It is about 6 km from the mainland and 5 km from the island of Rab. Exposed to strong bora winds, particularly in the winter, the island’s surface is almost completely devoid of vegetation, giving Goli Otok (“barren island” in Croatian) its name.
It is also known as ‘Croatian Alcatraz’ because of its location on an island and high security. After the conflict between Tito and Stalin in 1948., the Yugoslav authorities established a political camp, Goli otok, in which the prisoners were mostly sent to administrative decisions without any trial, it was stated that Josip Broz Tito himself. It was the most guarded prison in Yugoslavia. Prisoners were forced into heavy physical work in quarry and bauxite mines, regardless of weather conditions: in the summer at high temperatures as well as in cold weather in the winter. The guards regularly beat and mistreated the prisoners. The prison ceased operations in 1988, and the year after, 1989., it is completely abandoned and is now part of the ruins.
The island is visited today by tourists, and fishermen and shepherds from the island of Rab, who bring their sheep to summer. On the island you also have a bar if you want to refresh yourself with beverages.
