Geocache Description:

 

Košljun is a tiny island in Puntarska Draga bay off the coast of KRK, facing Punat. It is approximately 300 meters in diameter and covers an area of 6.5 hectares, but is rich in vegetation. The only inhabitants are a group of Franciscan monks living in St. Mary's Monastery.

You can visit the island with fast taxi boats from Punat or you can get there on your own (kayak, canoe could be an option).


On the island is situated Franciscan monastery. Archives and library in monastery contain over 20,000 volumes, some of which are invaluable rare copies. 

There is also impressive ethnographic museum, a natural history and numismatic collection, as well as a permanent exhibition of sacral art. 

On the island is forbidden bathing and there aren't any bars or restaurants. The only inhabitants are a group of Franciscan monks living in St. Mary's Monastery.

Island is perfect for walking because paths are settled through whole island. There are more than 500 plant species over island.

You can visit the island from 9 AM to 6 PM Monday to Sunday. Be aware that the ast boat leaves at 5 PM. 

The cahce is located on the north side of the beach. It's easily accessable from the Parking coordinates by following the track on the west side.
