Vela Plaza, the Graet Beach
Stara Baska (Old Baska) lies on the SW coast of the island
of Kirk, a 10 kilometers south of Punat. It is a quiet small
fishing village above a pebbly beach. Its greatest value
lies in the unspoiled nature, peace and quietness and terraced
gromace and stone-built sheep folds, its stone desert and
cliffs, the habitat for medicinal and aromatic herbs. And
one curiosity: main street in Stara Baska is so narrow that
two cars can hardly pass each other, but there are marked
pedestrian crossings every 100 m!
Pebble beach of Stara Baska is incredibly beautiful. Most
of the visitors come from Punat or Baska by foot or by car,
and some by boats. If coming by car, you have to park above
the beach and go by foot on a steep path to reach the beach.
It is a great beach for anyone seeking unspoiled nature
and not having loud bars and shops nearby.
If you really want to get away from it all, park the car
on the hilltop outside Stara Baska and walk down the steep
cliffs to the deserted coves below where you can sunbathe
in relative solitude and cool off in the sea. Remember to
take your walking shoes, a picnic and deep breaths. It’s
not for the unfit.
