Overview

Introduction

At Sunvil, we believe that Njivice is one of our “special finds”.

Located on the island of Krk in the Kvarner region, it is just over six kilometres and a quick eight-minute transfer to Rijeka airport which makes it perfect for a short break, for a week’s stay or longer.

With such short transfers to and from the airport, it’s an easy start or end to the holiday. Rijeka airport is small and even in high season there’s a maximum 10 flights a day on just one day of the week and the average on other days is six so there is no issue with aircraft noise.

Njivice was once a small fishing village and there is still a small fleet, clearly demonstrated by the monument to the fisherman on the riva (seafront pedestrianised promenade). Due to its heritage, it has a wide choice of fish restaurants including one of the best in the region called “Rivica” on the seafront. Next door is the sister restaurant called “Mala Rivica” (little Rivica) with a more casual-bistro feel. There are also traditional restaurants and a good choice of bars and cafes.

There are two good beaches (mainly pebble with sometimes a little sand at the water’s edge), one very near the hotel Miramare which we feature and the other around five minutes’ walk along the seafront.

A good selection of shops selling beachwear and swimming gear is joined by a supermarket, artisan shops, all the usual services such as pharmacy, post office, bakery and, of course, the famous ice cream salons.

From the waterfront there are a number of boat trip kiosks detailing what is on offer. Tennis courts are just behind the beach and must be booked locally.

In recent years, the riva waterfront has been nicely redesigned and rebuilt with the use of walkways and a bridge built of local white stone. There’s a kind of stone stage too where there’s live music and Fishermen's nights between June and September.

From mid-July until the end of August, Njivice gets very busy while during other months, there is a much more peaceful ambience. June, early July, September and October are particularly enjoyable with pleasantly warm sea temperatures usually between 22C- 24C (24C in late June, July and September).

An excellent local bus service connects Njivice with various places on the island of Krk.

  • To the island capital, Krk Town in 25 minutes, 17 kms away.
  • To Malinska, a slightly busier spot with a long arc shaped waterfront in 10 minutes, 6 kms away.
  • To Baska in the south with a beautiful long pebble-sand beach in 40 minutes, 36 kms away.

The above are all direct services.

To Vrbnik, the wine producing village, with a change of bus in Malinska, 55 minutes, 21 kms away.

If you are planning to add the island of Rab (located south of the island of Krk) to your stay on Krk, a regular ferry from Valbiska just 20 minutes’ drive from Njivice connects to Lopar on the island of Rab, crossing time 1 hour 20 minutes.

We feature the 3-star plus Hotel Miramare and as the name suggests (in Italian) it has great sea views being located right on the seafront with views across the Kvarner Bay.

 

Did you know?

  • Rijeka airport just an eight-minute drive from Njivice is the least busy airport on the Croatian coast, some days there are no flights at all.
  • The island of Krk is known for its special homemade pasta called “surlice” often served with various sauces including octopus.
  • The seafront promenade in Njivice is 1 kilometre long and fringed with pine trees with plentiful seating.
  • The first hotel was built in Njivice in 1930 marking the start of tourism here.
