often called the Nice of the Adriatic, is one of the most
popular tourist resorts in Croatia and a place with the
longest tourist tradition on the eastern coast of the Adriatic.
a naturally protected bay near Volosko and Opatija, is another
place in Croatia.
During summer months and early fall best time to go windsurfing
are mornings, from the sunrise until 8 am. This is because
of favorable wind tramontana which blows from the north.
Tramontana blows only during good weather conditions when
the sky is clear and it is a result of the temperature difference
between land and sea. It begins in the evening but the greatest
power gets early in the morning with 4-5 sometimes up to
7 bf. Waves in Preluk bay aren't especially high, up to
30 cm or no waves at all.
Western side of the bay, near auto camping Preluk is the
place to experience tramontana in its fullest.
