SeaHelp travel guide: The pristine, natural landscape of Uvala Krivica
The answer to the question as to what distinguishes Croatia as a watersports destination becomes self-explanatory when visiting Uvala Krivica bay on Losinj island: Turquoise blue crystal clear water, a delicate fragrance of pine trees in the air and 50 anchoring buoys for those seeking tranquillity and peace. Aforementioned peace in the Uvala Krivica will only be disturbed twice a day when a small supply boat comes along to bring fresh bread, tasty homemade cheese, sun-ripened tomatoes and, for those skippers with a sweet tooth, homemade apple ”Strudel‟ or doughnuts, sometimes still warm from the oven. And, let‘ be honest – who could resist such an attack on the Bikini figure?
What might be a remedy is a thirty-minute walk up the hill to the Konoba Balvanida, always provided there isn’t a cosy garden with further delicacies from kitchen and cellar waiting for its guests at the end of the path.
Those who managed the stony path back to the bay, are well advised to take a short walk along the ”dolphins‘ way‟. It bears its name with good reason as it is here where you have the biggest chances to see one of ”Flippers‟ lively descendants. For many skippers heading for the Uvala Krivica, though, they are already a kind of escort on the way there.
If you like, you can hit the road to Veli Losinj in a completely relaxed way. Depending on the breaks you might be taking, you will reach the village in about one hour’s walk.
According to the SeaHelp travel guide, here, in the Uvala Krivica, memories from days long gone by will be revived, those days when Croatia used to be an insider’s tip and the country had not yet been overrun by mass tourism.
