Kvarner Bay Nudist Cruise 2023

Rijeka - Rab - Olib - Silba - Ilovik - Mali Lošinj - Martinšćica - Rijeka

Naturism in Croatia has a tradition that stretches back over 60 years. The Koversada Naturist Complex on the Lim Canal in Istria opened way back in 1961 and is one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe. You will find beaches reserved for naturists along practically the entire Adriatic Coast, not to mention numerous unofficial beaches and stretches of beach which are almost exclusively frequented by naturists. In short, naturism is very widely accepted in Croatia. So what could be more natural than to get an all-over tan on the deck of a ship, to plunge free of the encumbrance of clothing into the crystal-clear sea of isolated bays? The cruises head whenever possible for secluded coves for extra-long swim breaks, so that you can happily go “déshabillé” without fear of being disturbed. True to the motto “hand in hand with nature”, the overnight stays are as far as possible scheduled for small fishing villages or secluded bays.

Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Rijeka - Rab

Embarkation time in Rijeka Port is from 1100HRS to 1300HRS. After embarkation the representative will greet you with a welcome drink, and you will have a chance to get to know the crew and your fellow passengers. While enjoying a snack, we weigh anchor and head off for the Island of Rab. On our way we call in at a secluded cove, where you will for the first time be able to dive into the beautiful waters of the Adriatic Sea. Dinner onboard in the cove before proceeding to the town of Rab. The old town of Rab with its striking bell towers extends along a narrow and rocky peninsula, surrounded on three sides by water. Three roads run through the old town, the ‘Lower Street’ with its cafes and bars, the ‘Middle Street’ with boutiques, souvenir shops and ice cream parlours, and the ‘Upper Street’, which leads to the four churches with their impressive bell towers. (D)

Day 2
Rab - Olib

After breakfast there will be time for a short stroll through the town before we depart from Rab for the Island of Pag. There follows a break of several hours for swimming in one of the scenic coves and lunch onboard. We then weigh anchor once again and set a course for the Island of Olib, arriving in the evening hours. Olib belongs to the Zadar Archipelago and has only approx 150 permanent residents, who mainly earn their living from olive growing and a little agriculture. In recent years, the islanders have returned to some traditional ways, including the ancestral extraction of sea salt without saltworks and the use of seaweed to make cushions and mattresses. There follows dinner onboard and overnight stay in Olib. In the event of high wind (Bura) the overnight stay will be in Mandre on the Island of Pag. (B, L, D)

Day 3
Olib - Silba - Ilovik

We depart from Olib and head off on a short cruise to the Bay of Sveti Ante on the Island of Silba. There follows an extended break for swimming, sunbathing and lunch onboard. We arrive at the Island of Ilovik in the evening hours and drop anchor in the small harbour there. The small island, only 5.5km² in size, is characterised by Mediterranean macchia, evergreen forest and olive groves. The place itself is bathed in every imaginable colour of the widest possible range of flowers, oleanders and palms. Ilovik is therefore also rightly known as the "Flower Island". Dinner onboard and an overnight stay. (B, L, D)

Day 4
Ilovik - Mali Lošinj

After breakfast we head to the Island of Lošinj, which is not only renowned for having 300 cloudless or only slightly cloudy days per year but is also covered with dense pine forests. With a little luck we may be able to watch dolphins playing in the waves, since the waters around the Island of Lošinj are home to more than 220 dolphins registered with the ‘Adriatic Dolphin Project’. We then set sail for a secluded cove of the Island of Lošinj with crystal-clear sea. There’s lots of time for swimming and sunbathing, broken up by lunch onboard. We then proceed to Mali Lošinj, known for its lovely port and seaside promenade. Dinner onboard and an overnight stay. (B, L, D)

Day 5
Mali Lošinj - Martinšćica

We depart from Mali Lošinj after breakfast and cruise to the neighbouring Island of Cres, which is connected with the Island of Lošinj at Osor by a swing bridge. Striking features of the island include the endless olive groves and countless flocks of sheep. It isn’t for nothing that lamb is regarded as one of the specialities of the Island of Cres. Once again, a beautiful bay awaits us where we spend the better part of the day and also take lunch. Today's destination is the peaceful little village of Martinšćica on the Island of Cres, where we also have the opportunity after dinner onboard to enjoy moonlit (nude) swimming. Overnight stay in Martinšćica. (B, L, D)

Day 6
Martinšćica - Valun

Departure after breakfast, with the aim of spending the sunny day in one of the numerous coves. Today’s destination is the fishing village of Valun on the Island of Cres, where the popular Austro-German television series “Der Sonne entgegen” (Toward the Sun) was filmed in the mid-1980s. The day is rounded off by the Captain's Dinner and an overnight stay in Valun. (B, L, D)

Day 7
Valun - Rijeka

Our last day in the beautiful island world. We leave Valun and drop anchor one last time in a bay approx half an hour’s voyage away. After lunch and what will by then have become the customary break for swimming and sunbathing, we set a course for Rijeka. Dinner onboard and an overnight stay in Rijeka. (B, L, D)

▪ In the event of bad weather or rain, port stays in the overnight stay locations will be extended since sunbathing will in any case be impossible.
