Welcome to Cres Island

The northern half of Cres, known as Tramuntana, is covered with dense oak, hornbeam, elk and chestnut forests. It’s prime cruising terrain for the protected griffon vulture, and you’ll see these giant birds at an excellent visitor centre in Beli, on the eastern coast.

The main seaside settlements lie on the western shore of Cres. Southwest of Valun there are highlands that include the perched medieval village of Lubenice.
