The islands of Cres and Lošinj can be reached by car or bus via Jadrolinija ferries. When travelling from the direction of Zagreb, you cross the bridge on the island of Krk all the way to ferry dock Valbiska where you board for the ferry dock Merag on the island of Cres. When travelling from the direction of Opatija, you go to the ferry dock Brestova -Porozina. The ferry ride on lines Valbiska – Merag and Brestova Porozina lasts between 20 and 25 minutes.


There are air-conditioned areas on the ferries with a variety of food and beverages on offer. You can spend the time inside or outside, enjoying the beautiful view. During the pre-season and the post-season, as well as outside the season, the ferries follow the pre-set schedule, but during the season, when there is more traffic, the ferries are usually operational all day long.


Unfortunately, ferry reservations for lines Valbiska – Merag i Brestova – Porozina are not possible and it is advisable to plan an earlier arrival to the docks, while the reservations for the Zadar – Mali Lošinj ferry are recommended, especially during the main season.
