Even if the island of Krk is connected to the land by the Krk bridge, a good connection is also provided to the neighbouring islands of Cres, Lošinj and Rab.
That is, from the Valbiska ferry harbour throughout the year ferries depart on the route from Valbiska (on the island of Krk)-Merag (on the island of Cres) and Valbiska – Lopar (on the island of Rab). As the island of Cres is connected to the island of Lošinj by drawbridge, there is also a possibility of visiting and experiencing that island too.
Those ferry routes are provided by the Jadrolinija, a company set up for the maritime transport of passengers and cargo with a hundred year tradition. The company was founded on 20th January 1947. as the successor to a number of different companies owned by small shipowners for coastal navigation. Jadrolinija services greatly under the influence of tourism and its main tasks include connecting the islands to the mainland and maintaining a route along the coast on the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea.
