The winds of the island can reach to as much as 40 knots, definitely bringing in the surfing waves that you could have been longing during your entire stay in the Island. You can also go to Savudrija, which is also found near Premantura. Instead of the bora winds, you can take advantage of the maestral winds that come from the northwest.

Baska in Krk island is considered as one of the most beautiful and exciting beaches in Croatia. Its fine white sand and pebble beach, in addition to the bars and restaurants where everyone can just lounge around and while away time, always attract a huge crowd.

Also adding to the charm of the island is the bora wind from the northeast direction.

Preluk, which is found in the Kvarner bay, is also one of the best destinations for wind surfing. What's more, it's easily accessed, especially if you're either in Opatija and Rijeka.


If you want to make sure that you can enjoy the wind a lot better, though, windsurf early in the morning, where the tramontana winds, which come from the north, are blowing at their strongest.

Bol in Brac Island, meanwhile, has continuous maestral winds blowing all day, so you can always up those surfboard and sail anytime you want to. But for those who are still inexperienced in windsurfing, they may want to begin their training early in the morning, when the winds are not that strong yet.
