The area of Kvarner is a true paradise for navigators, with opportunity to discover not only the hidden bays with virgin beaches, but also small family-run hotels, wine cellars and restaurants, offering local, seasonal specialties and, for some folk, almost forgotten dishes. These are the places where you can experience the Adriatic coast as it once was and as many would like to see it today. This is especially true when talking about the gastronomy, where the folk cuisine is facing more demand and value.
