Your summer holidays can be so much more than soaking up the sun and listening to the roar of the waves. Active holidays are becoming an increasingly popular option, offering activities such as cycling, running, hiking, sailing and water sports.
Owing to its balmy climate, clean sea, lush Mediterranean vegetation and abundance of trails and promenades, Malinska has become the choice destination for lovers of outdoor sports and active holidays.
If you love spending your free time hiking or running in nature, you’ll be delighted by the 50 kilometres of trails that are offered.
Explore the trails that lead to the quiet town of Porat and the monastery of Glagolitic friars, or follow the path though Cickini forest to reach the ruins of the Early Christian church complex that spreads out over 5000 square metres, as well as many other cultural and historical monuments whose secrets are safeguarded by the oak forests.
Take a stroll along the coast and its shimmering waters to reach Njivice, while enjoying the smell of salt in the air, or go inland and travel all the way to Dobrinj or the town of Krk.
A four-kilometre trail leads from the town centre of Malinska to Porat, while Njivice can be reached in six kilometres. The most beautiful trail can be found behind Porat towards Glavotok, in a region where you can enjoy running on narrow trails in unspoilt nature and discover hidden beaches and coves, surrounded by the shade of lush vegetation.
