Due to its favourable natural features (the mild and healthy climate, microclimate, clean air and sea etc.), the Crikvenica Riviera began to nurture a tradition of health tourism as early as the 19th century. The tradition of high-quality health services is today successfully continued in a variety of health institutions. If you are looking for a destination where in the same day you can swim in the sea, stroll on a sandy beach breathing in the scents of the Mediterranean, and then in the evening have fun in town, or relax in the quiet of a green hinterland, then this is the right choice for you.
The Crikvenica-Vinodol region has a total of more than 300 km of footpaths and hiking trails and 300 km of cycling trails. The period of the best climatic conditions for various open air activities, such as walking, cycling and sailing, lasts almost all year round. You will also enjoy while exploring the traditional gastronomy. Some of the restaurants and hotels marked The Oily Fish Route offer specially prepared tasty dishes of blue fish on their menus and this is based on the famous tradition of fishing. It's always interesting here with more than 250 different events throughout the year, such as the Carnival, Crikvenica Cycling Marathon, (Sr)etno Selce ethno festival, CrikvArt - street entertainers festival, Šilo-Crikvenica swimming marathon or the Fisherman's Week.
This riviera is ideal for all generations of visitors, from adventurers and animal lovers to families and those looking for entertainment and relaxation in the great outdoors.
Crikvenica Tourist Board includes a central Tourist Office and four Tourist Information Centres in coastal towns on the Crikvenica Riviera: in Crikvenica, Dramalj, Jadranovo, and Selce. Its basic vision and mission is to constantly invest in quality and to effectively connect the existing services and facilities on the Riviera with the aim of increasing the number of visitors and their level of satisfaction. Other objectives include the creation of new interesting services, activities, destination brands and marketing strategies in order to make the Crikvenica Riviera recognisable on the market as a desirable destination for leisure, entertainment, relaxation, sport and recreation.
It has extensive experience in developing various projects (the CIHT conference, Crikvenica – the Marathon Town, the Oily Fish Road, Fall in Love in/with Crikvenica, etc.), promotional activities and organising numerous cultural, entertainment, traditional, culinary, sporting, recreational, and other events. The efforts and innovation have been recognised at the international level: in 2014 the 'Creative Tourism Network' declared Crikvenica Tourist Board the world's most creative destination. The basic criterion for this was the fact that visitors are involved in the life of the local community.
