Napoleonski put

Thousands of cobbles have been laid down on the ground to build the Napoleonic Path – a road built at the beginning of the 19th century during the short-lived French rule. Walk in the steps of our ancestors and join us on an excursion where you will discover the diversity of the island.

We will walk from Kimen Hotel to Pišće – a unique swamp area that will remind you once again of just how diverse the landscape on this island is.

Merška Pit

Discover and explore one of the most interesting natural phenomena on the island of Cres. Merška Pit is one of the rare, but truly impressive examples of a cover-collapse sinkhole on Cres. The sinkhole is thought to have developed a long time ago with the collapse of a giant underground cavern.

You will be able to witness first hand how steep and rocky its side walls are, and the large volumes of rock debris and stone blocks at the bottom of the sinkhole will give you an idea of the large-scale breaking-off and collapse of rocks that took place in the past.

From Kimen Hotel we head to Bartolomej – an authentic old church that bears witness to the earliest days of life on Cres.

After that, we climb down to Merška Pit. We then head to the village Merag and then the ferry port for our transfer back.

Tramuntana

You can explore the east part of the island of Cres, also known as Tramuntana, with the help of expert guides. This excursion will take you on a journey down the paths of our ancestors and to the most beautiful locations of this part of Cres.

Our first stop from Kimen Hotel is the picturesque village of Beli. From there, we go down one part of the trail to visit the abandoned village of Frantin, where a school once stood.

Our next stop is the village of Crkveni, after which we head to Konec, aptly named the “end”, as it stands on the very end of the island. Thanks to its location, the village offers a stunning view which will let you see the island in a truly special way.

From Konec we head to the village of Ivanje, after which the trail leads us to the town remnants. The remains of these ancient, authentic Cres houses will best illustrate the culture of the island.

Our next destination is the abandoned village of Žanjevići – another chapter in the history of our ancestors.

We continue along the trail until we reach remnants from an even earlier age and finally head back to Beli.

About Us – from our guests perspective

Very good camping place for family with children, clean bathrooms and shower. Super nice beach.

Michel Navarro

Paradise on Earth. The beach is a little crowded but there are many little bays to explore in the area.

If someone likes calmer, medium-sized campsites, I recommend it. The car must be left in the parking lot upstairs outside the town. But you can go to a small parking lot about 200m from the campsite and use a trolley (available) to bring your luggage. On the one hand, this is a difficulty, but on the other hand, it is a plus – there are no cars at the campsite, and only a few in the town. The town itself is charming with tasty (though expensive) restaurants.
