St Mark’s (Marek) is the only sandy beach on the island of Krk, located 6 km from Vrbnik and not far from the village of Risika, in the bay named after the church of St Mark, whose ruins can be found close to the beach. The beach includes sunbathing spots with fine sand and nearby meadows, food outlets, mooring berths, car park and sanitary block. It is also possible to hire pedal boats, deckchairs and sunshades. It is a favourite bathing spot for families with children. An amateur swimming marathon of 3,100 m takes place here in July. It is organised by a handful of enthusiasts from Risika, and starts at Vrbnik’s harbour.
