The city of Cres is basically a city on the bay, as its town docks come directly into the middle of the city and are filled with boats. In the center there are many people selling different homemade goods and there are also many shops and open air restaurants.
The island of Cres can be reached from Brestova via the ferry to Porozina. Ferries operate regularly and frequently during the summer season, but there is often a long waiting because of the many tourists visiting the island.
