Baska is a small town on the south-eastern coast of the island of Krk. Fertile tracts of land in the Baska Draga valley, through which runs the Suha Ricina or Vela Rika, have enabled farming, fishing, viniculture, as well as making and selling of wine, which in turn, has given rise to maritime and shipbuilding industries. The tourist office provides a good free map of marked hiking trails throughout the southern tip of the island. Several popular trails begin around Camping Zablace, including an 8km walk to Stara Baska, a restful little village on a bay surrounded by stark, salt-washed limestone hills. Another short 2.5km route leads to St Lucy church (Sveti Lucija; Jurandvor; open 1pm-6pm daily June, 9am-l lam, 4pm-8.30pm July-Sept), where the 11th-century Baska tablet was found, which is now in the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb. The church was built at the end of the 9th century by Benedictine monks on the site of a Roman villa. In addition to a great view, you'll see ruins of the former monastery, which was abandoned at the end of the 15th century. A trail from the naturist camp leads east to the remains of the ancient Illyrian settlement of Bosar (Corinthia) between the Vela luka and Mala luka bays. Next to the old, compact part of the town, a new part with tourist facilities has been built, making Baska a well-known tourist destination. The main town near Baska is Krk about 19 km.
