Nude beach near Banculuka nudist camping located at
the southeast end of the island near Baska town (www.tz-baska.hr).
The coast is mostly rocky with several beautiful pebble
coves. The beach can be reached by foot from the center
of Baska (about 15 minutes walking).
The naturist camp Bunculuka is located
in the beautiful gulf between two hills, which are characterized
by the uncontaminated nature. Camping is situated only
15 minutes of walking from popular summer resort Baska.
The beach in Banculuka is pebbly with
beautiful small pebbles. This beach can be very crowded
with guests from the camping but also with one-day guests.
More interesting are beaches located after
the camping. First comes Jablanova cove, then
Mali raj, Mala Vrzenica cove and finally
Vela Vrzenica cove. These are all beautiful pebbly
nudist beaches. It is difficult to tell which one is
the most beautiful one. There are no facilities at any
of them so bring everything you need. In 2005 there
were deckchairs and parasols available to rent on Jablanova,
Mala and Vela Vrzenica caves.
For gays the most interesting is Vela Vrzenica which
attracts some gay men and is the biggest beach. There
is also a pine forest where you can hide against heat
or take a rest in the shadow.
Gay section is, as usual, at the end of the Vela Vrzenica
cave, where pebbles are a bit larger and approach to
the water is not pleasant without some sort of plastic
After Vela Vrzenica there is an area sometimes busy
with cruising and if you continue walking you will reach
secluded coves of Dubna and Konjska, which are usually
visited only by boat owners and are more than one hour
of walk away from Banculuka camping.
To reach Banculuka and other mentioned
beaches you have four options.
1. By car
At the entrance to Baska there is a crossroad with signs
to Baska's centre and FKK Banculuka. You can drive all
the way to the entrance of the camping and park your
car there. The parking is charged 25 Kunas for the whole
day (in 2005). Then you walk to the main entrance to
Banculuka camping (Reception) where they charge you
another 10 Kunas per person for a whole day stay in
the camping. After entering the camping, walk down to
the camping's beach, turn left and keep walking along
the coastline path that will get you to other beaches.
The path is narrow and steep that leads you across the
(sometimes high) cliffs above the sea. You can walk
all the way completely naked if you like (many people
do so), but you have to wear some good walking footwear.
Flip-flops are definitively no-no, because on cliffs
it can be dangerous.
2. Walking from Baska
If you stay in Baska or you don't feel like paying 25
Kunas for parking, you can park your car somewhere in
Baska and then walk along the coast. From Baska's centre
walk toward the port (East of the centre). By the end
of the port you will see the sign that will lead you
to FKK Banculuka camping. Asphalt road will bring you
the the entrance of the camping where there is a person
charging 10 Kunas per person the entrance, but you can
tell him that you just want to walk through the camping
to reach other beaches. After he lets you in, walk along
the Banculuka's nudist beach and fallow the coastal
Distance from Baska's centre to Banculuka camping is
about 1km and there is another cca. 2km from Banculuka
to Vela Vrzenica cave. If you get tired or hot under
the sun you can always take a swim somewhere along the
way, on cliffs or in one of mentioned coves before Vela
3. Taxi Boat
Small taxi boats taking sunbathers to Vrzenica and other
beaches leave from Baska's port, but there are very
few of them and they are usually overcrowded.
4. By boat or kayak
You can rent a small motor boat or a kayak in Baska
and drive or paddle yourself to Vrzenica and other beaches.
If you like nudist camping, you can even
stay in Banculuka. You can build your tent on unusual
places, like high in the hill or even in front of rocky
caves. There is a restaurant in the camp and food is
pretty good there. They have also a small market, kiosk
with fast food, a newsstand and courts for tennis, volleyball
and mini golf.
