Beach Blue cave Cres

The Blue cave is situated in the bay Zanja, under the town of Lubenice on the island of Cres. Blue Grota is a sea cave situated on the edge of the beach in the rock.
Entrance is a little farther from the beach, but you can enter it by swimming or sandolin. The cave is about 20 m long and has large air space. Inside the cave is a small pebble beach. Through the cracks in the rocks, light reaches which makes this cave special. During the summer, later in the afternoon, the sun is in a favorable corner and creates a special experience of playing light and water, reflecting the beautiful blue colour in different shades.
There is no shade here, because low vegetation grows along the beach, especially for this part of the coast on the island. The main part of the beach, for sunbathing and swimming, is made of medium sized pebbles. She walks easily and reaches the sea. It is suitable for all persons and growers. It is ideal for a day-long trip to nature, by the sea and in the sun. It's up to you to get well equipped and come enjoy yourself.

How to get to the beach

The easiest and shortest way to reach the cave is from Martinšćica. You can rent a boat or take a taxi boat at the village. You can also walk to the cave from the village of Lubenice. If you decide to visit the Blue Cave in the summer, we recommend you carry a lot of water with you, since the path is very steep and difficult. The descent from Lubenice to the Blue Cave lasts for about 30-40 minutes, while the climb back is 1-1.5 hours long.
The pebble beach Sv. Ivan in the vicinity of Žanje Bay is one of the most beautiful secluded beaches in the world. The German magazine Bild listed it as the 15th most beautiful beach among the top 40 beaches in the world.

Let's Protect the Environment

cres čuvajmo okoliš

Humans fill their own living space and the space of the next generations with waste that comes from production and consumption. This waste pollutes the living elements (water, air and soil) on which life on Earth depends. More than 60% of people on Earth live by the sea or at sea and therefore protecting our seas is extremenly important.
