Punat is a small town with port and marina on the eastern part of the Puntarska (Kosljunska) Cove, separated by the Prniba peninsula from the Krk Bay, on the south-eastern coast of the island of Krk, 7 km southeast of the town of Krk. Named after a bridge (Lat. pons) which used to stand at the entrance into the Puntarska Cove, connecting Prniba with the eastern coast. Chief occupations include farming, viniculture, olive growing, fishing, shipbuilding and tourism, yachting in particular. In front of the town, in the middle of the shallow cove, is a forested islet of Kosljun, with a small pier and a Franciscan monastery. Punat is one of the leading centres of yachting tourism on the Croatian coastline. The sea in front of the town is shallow, and the bottom muddy; towards the open sea, on the so-called Usta (Mouth), the depth is between 2,5 and 3 m. Punat is exposed to the bora from the hinterland and the sirocco from the sea. It is situated on the local, branching road of the main road (102) running through the island of Krk. Punat Marina has 750 berths in the sea and 300 places on the land.

At each move you'll feel the rich cultural heritage: in the parochial church with its Baroque altar, in the Medieval chapel of St. George (Sv.Juraj), in the pre-Romanesque church of St.Donat (Sv.Dunat); along the promenade above the place, you'll come across sculptures representing the Way of the Cross, and on Kosljun -the islet in the middle of the bay - a unique harmony has been achieved between the natural beauty, cultural and historical heritage. In the local Franciscan monastery you can find the ethnographic and sacral collections as well as a valuable old library.

Enjoy at the concerts of classical music on the islet Kosljun and in the parish church, in art exhibitions in the "Toš" gallery, the sailing regattas or picking the olives.
