Tourist information

Lubenice are located on the western coast of the Island of Cres on a 378 meters high cliff which offer magnificent view of the whole Bay of Kvarner and on the nearby gravel beach of St. John. This beach is often simply called Lubenice. It is a common theme of postcards from Cres, but also the object of desire for many visitors, because it can be reached only by boat or a narrow pathway which begins under the northern part of the local walls. If you decide for hiking, you should know that it's a 40-minute walk to the beach, and even twice more on the way back since it's uphill.

The place is almost four millenniums old, which left its mark on the architecture, since in Lubenice the place with the population of 20, there are many churches like it's a much bigger settlement. The main sight is the Parish Church of Visitation of the Holy Virgin Mary with recognizable 18th-century bell-tower since the place is very compact. Around ten meters away there is a gothic Church of St. Anthony the Great, with churches of St. Jacob and Holy Sunday nearby. In the beginning of the summer season, the place is filled with tourists, which besides the beautiful nature enjoy in 'Lubenice evenings', music manifestation on which Croatian and World musicians are performing. You can also enjoy in the coffee place under the bell-tower and in the tavern Hibernicia, which is and old Roman name for Lubenice. Near the tavern there is a small souvenir shop in which you can purchase postcards, magnets and ceramic souvenirs which will remind you on this pearl of Cres and Croatian rural area.

If you decide to come to Lubenice by private transportation, you can reach the place through the main road D100. It connects the cities Cres and Mali Losinj, and after the turn towards Lubenice and Valunu, it will take you around 15 minutes to get to Lubenice. The last five kilometres is actually an asphalted 'goat path', so be very careful because two cars can hardly pass by, unless you are next to a lay-by which are specifically built for that purpose. On the way there you will pass through small settlement Mali Podol, and after you come to Lubenice, the parking place is right on the left side, before the Church of St. Anthony the Great. You have to pay the parking during summer months. As Lubenice are located on the Island of Cres, you can reach the island by car from two sides, that is by two ferry lines: Valbiska-Merag and Brestova - Porozina. Porozina is a little further from the town Cres, unlike Merag which is 15 km from the centre of the city.
