Best time to go to Kvarner Bay
There’s a lot going on when it comes to the weather in Kvarner Bay. By the coast and on the islands, there’s a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. The islands of Krk, Rab, Lošinj and Cres average 217 sunny days per year – so loads of time for catching a tan. Summer temperatures average at 24°C, followed by highs of 7°C in the colder months. Hike your way up into the mountains on the mainland, meanwhile, and you’ll find yourself out in the cold if you visit over the winter. See if you can learn the many names for the different types of wind throughout the year. Visit in summer and you might experience a ‘mistral’, a breeze that brings clear weather and makes the hot hot heat a bit more bearable.
