Even though you are still in your winter coat or tucked under a blanket, with a good book or movie, your thoughts are already in summer and planning your summer vacation? There are more of us! 🙂 Do you miss that feeling that summer brings, the smells of the sea and the Mediterranean, swimming in the clear sea, lying on sunny beaches with warm sand under your toes, the flavors of the sea on your plate, long and warm summer evenings with lots of dancing and fun…? We completely understand you. Don’t hesitate to plan the perfect summer vacation now. If you’re looking for inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. We discover why you should spend the summer in one of the most desirable and attractive Mediterranean destinations – in Malinska on the island of Krk.
Located on the northwestern part of the “golden island of Kvarner”, in a bay protected from the winds, Malinska has the most pleasant climate on the island, lush Mediterranean vegetation and beaches lapped by the clear blue sea, and more then 260 sunny days a year. Find your place under the sun there, and only then the adventure begins.
Active vacation in Malinska
You will experience one of the most beautiful on two wheels – whether you take the paths along the sea, or those that lead through centuries-old oak forests and olive groves inland. Along the way, you will discover hidden churches, enjoy attractive views and the scents of wild and edible plants. Find sage, smell the immortelle (be sure to plan a visit to the Immortelle farm near Omišalj), try your hand at picking wild asparagus in the spring… Riding a bike is a real pleasure, and you won’t even break a sweat at the same time, since all the trails have a relatively small climb (up to 240 m above sea level) and are suitable for families and all generations of cyclists. The island also hosts numerous cycling events.
If you enjoy walking, hiking or running, Malinska has as many as 50 km of trails. Some lead to the sea, and some to the interior of the island, where numerous cultural delicacies and historical sites are hidden in the forests, under the dense oak canopy. Discover them…
Malinska is the right choice for everyone who likes to tighten their sails, feel the wind in their hair and go exploring the surrounding bays, just like for those who love to explore the secrets of the undersea. During the summer season, release your adrenaline with parasailing or an exciting jet-ski ride. If you want something more peaceful, pedal boats and kayaks are a great way to explore the nearby bays. For a little more privacy, rent a boat and head to coves and secluded, untouched beaches that only boaters have the privilege of enjoying since they are only accessible from the sea side.
The island of Krk and Malinska are home to some of the most attractive Adriatic beaches. What better way to relax in the summer months than lying in the shade on one of the beaches, with a view of the sea of all shades of blue? If you also have your favorite company, a good book and/or a refreshing cocktail with you, it’s a real jackpot 🙂 Explore the beaches in Malinska and find your favorite one that will become your summer base.
A tempting gastronomic journey
Malinska has many restaurants offering a diverse gastronomic offer. In order to experience the destination even better, give priority to traditional dishes – home made pasta šurlice, sheep’s cheese, Krk lamb, and dishes made of fresh fish, shrimp, clams, squid… Of course, refined with top-quality domestic olive oil. Sweeten yourself with ‘kroštule’ and ‘fritule’ and try presnac (cake with fresh sheep’s cheese).
After a day full of experiences, all that remains is to settle down and take a good rest for new adventures in the coming days. The comfortable and modern rooms and apartments of Hotel Malin are a great choice for anyone looking for a top-quality vacation by the sea, the sound of waves and the song of seagulls, and at the same time close to numerous facilities and great summer parties. The hotel is an ideal starting point for walks along the sea and is located right next to hiking and biking trails. On the Mulino hotel beach in the summer, play beach volleyball, rent a jet ski or sup and go for new experiences. From June to September, the Mul beach bar there is an indispensable base for casual gatherings by the sea, after beach parties, DJs performances , various bands…, while the entire beach turns into a favorite Kvarner hot spot for unforgettable parties in summer evenings.
Just a few meters away, a corner is reserved for top gastronomic experiences. Luxury, tradition and quality are the words that best describe the Mulino à la carte restaurant, whose chefs combine the traditional with the modern. Homemade dishes from daily fresh fish and seafood, baked dishes, prosciutto, the already mentioned šurlice, island lamb and sheep’s cheese and numerous other dishes of the islands of Krk and Kvarner are prepared and combined there in an extremely tasty, imaginative and modern way. Don’t miss that gourmet pleasure on the terrace with an irresistible view of the sea and with live music, as well as fisherman’s evenings with traditional ‘klapa’ concerts. Toast to life with golden Vrbnička žlahtina (or any other island wine from the rich offer) and at the same time wish to return to Malinska as soon as possible.
