CLIMATE, FLORA AND FAUNA

The island of Krk is located in a moderate and mild Mediterranean climate zone. The average summer temperature is 23 °C, the average sea temperature in the period from June to September is 20 °C. The most frequent winds are the bura (NE), jugo (SE) and maestral (W). So on the north and south-eastern part of the island the jugo blows more frequently, and in part of the central and northern part of the island the bura prevails.

The island of Krk is included amongst the sunniest parts of Europe with 2500 hours of sun per year. The variety of relief and favourable climatic conditions have contributed to the development of almost 1400 different plant species. In the central and western part of the island forests and cultivated cultures of Mediterranean fruit and vegetables prevail, with vineyards and olive groves. The north and south part of the island is marked with rocky land and pasture. The specificity of Krk’s landscape is its terrace shaped walls (gromače) and shepherd’s mrgar which have been conserved on the limestone plateaus above the Baška valley.
