The agritourism type camp Marušina Olive Hills offers both the tranquility of a Mediterranean arboretum amidst olive gardens and the immediate vicinity of the popular resort town of Punat. The latter is known for a 7 km long stretch of breathtaking coastline from just outside of the picturesque Puntarska Draga Bay (Bay of Punat) to the small remote village of Stara Baška.
Although the campsite is only 250 m away from the shoreline, its 60 m elevation above the sea level results in a beautiful panorama of the Bay of Punat with a view of the islet of Košljun in its center and even the Franciscan monastery hidden in the carefully cultivated grove on the islet.
The nearest beach (with a wakeboard and a diving school) is 700 m away, while the main beach of Punat and the extraordinarily beautiful beaches outside the Bay of Punat are at a 5 minute ride from the campsite.
The accommodation offered on the camping ground is primarily for tents and minicampers, but annual contracts for caravans are also possible.
Among the locally produced specialties offered to the guests are sheep cheese, prosciutto, fine wines and, of course, olive oil.
The increasingly popular hiking and rock-climbing area of the karstic southern Krk is at just a brief hike or ride by car from the camp. The most striking features of this dazzlingly white limestone area are the vivid colors and the sheer quantity of light so characteristic of the extreme karst of some of the Northern Adriatic islands.
The historical cities of Krk and Vrbnik with their rich cultural heritage and gastronomy are a short distance (5 km and 9 km, respectively) away.
