Upon reaching Crikvenica, we set anchor in the main harbor. Once we've gathered our things, we proceeded to explore the town on foot. The day was sunny and hot, with no wind indication. Our sailing trip went smoothly. But, it isn't always like that. During spring or autumn, the weather is a little bit trickier and I wouldn't advise anyone to sail on their own. At least not without a skipper or whole crew. The thunderstorms and vicious winds (bura) are not to be taken lightly.
The main attraction for most tourists that visit Crikvenica are the sandy beach resorts. The water is crystal clear and great for swimming. There's fun for the whole family! It's never a boring day in Crikvenica. After a whole day of swimming and relaxing on the beach, we were beginning to feel a bit hungry so one of the locals told us of an excellent restaurant not far from Crikvenica. It was in a small village nearby, called Selce. The name of the restaurant is "Konoba Toc". Some of the best fish delicacies can be ordered there. I had the mackerel, and my wife had the grouper. Both were very delicious!
It was still early in the evening so we took the taxi back to the town of Crikvenica. We had the pleasure of enjoying the rest of the night filled with music and dancing. It was very romantic and great fun. The town really springs back to life during the evening hours!
Next year we are sure to come back to Croatia and visit another popular tourist destination. If you're ever planning on visiting Croatia, we hope you will have a great time, as much as we did. Have a safe trip! Enjoy.
