Cres is an island in the Kvarner Gulf. It is connected on one side by ferry to the mainland, and on the other by bridge to the island of Losinj. There are several villages on the island, all linked by one road running down the middle. Cres has one of the deepest fresh water lakes in Europe, in which it is prohibited to swim or fish.
Entrance to the ACI Marina requires attention as there is an underwater rock in the immediate vicinity of the Cape Melin lighthouse and a distance of at least 50m should be maintained from the cape.
