Very nice and relaxing place
May 2021 • Family
A very nice and relaxing place after a ten-minute boat-ride from Punat harbor. There are lot of private water taxi “drivers” waiting for the tourists to ship them to the island for quite big money. But it is worth visiting the island and the monastery and museum.

Pretty Little Island
Sep 2016 • Couples
Kosljun is a pretty little island reached by boat from Punet Bay. The island is peaceful with very few tourists. There is a monastery and a museum. Overall, a pretty relaxing trip

Little island with less tourists
Oct 2016 • Business
Košljun is a nice little island. It is so close to Punat that better swimmers can swim there. You can find cheap ride with a boat for younger and older. It is possible to walk around or to find a shadow for you. Main attraction on the island is a monastery. You need to pay the entrance fee for the church and museum.

Interesting and peaceful island
Sep 2016 • Couples
This small island which houses a monastery, can be reached by boat - water taxi from Punat is only a couple of pounds each way. You can walk all around the island and there are lots of interesting plants which attract lots of wildlife

Beautiful and peaceful island
Aug 2016 • Family
Short boat drive takes you to this beautiful small island with lots of things to see there. 2 small but very nice museums, for me the most impressive was money collection from all around the world and from different periods.
Lovely church and very nice park around it. Definetly worth seeing if you are on Krk island

Sweet little islet
Jul 2016 • Family
So... Once you are in Punat look for any boat, making transfers to Kosljun (even if it looks expensive - private - it is not like that, 20 kunas per person to go there and back).

After short ride you land on this tiny island and even if you would like just to walk around (unspoiled nature, pine trees), you must pay 20 kunas per person. But once you have paid it, you can see all the museum collections and everything..

Museum has some interesting stuff (sheep with one eye), but also some... Disturbing.. (Embrios in bottles).

There is no caffe, but is a small automat for drinks. You can enjoy the peace here, i suggest you to tell the boat driver to come after few hours, if you have time. We decided to stay for an hour, but it passed so quickly...

Tiny place - too many school parties
Jun 2016 • Couples
This small green islet is accessible by a short ferry ride. It is home to a Franciscan monastery with only 3-4 monks for most of the year. There is a library which holds over 300000 books, some of which are ancient texts. There is also a museum which contains local costumes over the ages, & a Cabinet of Wonders which would entertain most curious children as it contains weird stuffed animals & jars contains animal embryos. There is also a small chapel & cloister. Surrounding the buildings are quiet wooded walks & a waterfront walk. Unfortunately the air of calm & contrmplation was ruined by hoards of noisy children on school trips.

Very interesting to see all the background history

It was such a short boat ride, but such a great place with a lot of historical information. It was great to see what they wore, what the ancient lettering was all about as well.

Short stop, worth visiting
May 2016 • Family
It doesn`t cost much, but it is worth visiting if you are exploring island Krk. Ferry boat ride is short, entrance fee only 20 kunas, and you can enjoy the monastery, museum and the nature of this small island. Check out the smallest prying book, one-eye lamb... other things explore by yourself. You need not more than 1 hour with a boat ride to see it all (or do you?) Enjoy!

Punat's best historic attraction
Sep 2015 • Friends
When you get to Punat, take the ferry boat ride over to Koslijun which is a small island that you can see from Punat's oceanfront. 20 Kuna is the price and it's well worth the 8 to 10 minute boat ride to get to this island that offers you a historic monastery, museum and a lovely small island waterfront walk. There is a forest with pathways behind the church. Very non touristy, well worth a visit when you get to Punat. The tour time is one hour as they want you to return promptly. The island takes less than an hour to cover. Awesome way to spend a morning. No food and beverage when you get there, just a WC by the entrance way where you pay money to a monk to get in . . . another 20 kuna
