Although Cres and Losinj are separate islands, they are joined by a bridge at Osor, and served by the same ferries and catamarans so are easier to consider together.
Cres to Sveti Blaz
15km Trail Running
A beautiful run from Cres town to the beach by the ruins of Sveti Blaz (Saint Blaz). Starting by the cemetery at the edge of Cres town, start down the narrow lane marked to the church. The first part is open through olive groves, before entering single track through the forest. The final descent leads to first the ruins of the church and soon after the beautiful beach marking the turn around point.
Cres town can be reached by Catamaran from Rijeka, there is a daily connection every afternoon, returning from Cres in the mornings. Autotrans run regular buses from Rijeka, some pass through Krk island, the rest through Opatija. The only way to make a day trip to Cres by public transport is by bus.
Cres can be reached by car either through Krk Island and the ferry from Valbiska to Merag, or from the Istrian side and the ferry from Brestova to Porozina. From Rijeka the first route is a little shorter and quicker but there is a toll of 35 Kuna (5Euro) for the bridge – although it's free in the opposite direction.
