The town of Punat is situated in the southwest part of the Island of Krk, in one of the most protected bays on the Adriatic. Here, amidst the mild Mediterranean and the contrasts between the blue and the green, is the home of hospitable people to whom the climate has given the mildness and the rock and the sea have given them care and diligence. All the charm of the simple seaside ambience in the town of Punat comes from the narrow little streets, the passages, the terraces and the taverns keeping good wines, the primal whiteness of the nearby gravely beaches, and the vineyards and olive groves surrounded by rock. Punat also has a true gem in the middle of the bay – the islet of Košljun. These treasures encouraged the local people to invite guests to their town and enjoy Punat and its beauties together with them. This is why numerous tourist facilities have sprung here in Punat – we enrich them day by day because more and more people fall in love with Punat.
Chief occupations include farming, viniculture, olive growing, fishing, shipbuilding and tourism, yachting in particular. In front of Punat, in the middle of the shallow cove, is a forested islet of Kosljun, with a small pier and a Franciscan monastery. Punat is one of the leading centres of yachting tourism on the Croatian coastline.
