If you love spending your free time hiking or running in nature, you’ll be delighted by the 50 kilometres of trails that are offered.

Explore the trails that lead to the quiet town of Porat and the monastery of Glagolitic friars, or follow the path though Cickini forest to reach the ruins of the Early Christian church complex that spreads out over 5000 square metres, as well as many other cultural and historical monuments whose secrets are safeguarded by the oak forests.

Take a stroll along the coast and its shimmering waters to reach Njivice, while enjoying the smell of salt in the air, or go inland and travel all the way to Dobrinj or the town of Krk.

A four-kilometre trail leads from the town centre of Malinska to Porat, while Njivice can be reached in six kilometres. The most beautiful trail can be found behind Porat towards Glavotok, in a region where you can enjoy running on narrow trails in unspoilt nature and discover hidden beaches and coves, surrounded by the shade of lush vegetation.

Paradise road

The construction of the  Paradise road , a promenade from the bathing-place Haludovo to Njivice, launched a  Bathing Commission Malinska  in 1934.

Landowners ceded their plots to be used for planting pine trees, without any fee.  The construction and arrangement of the Paradise Road  was completed in 1938 and the road was in use the same year.

The total length of the promenade, from the bathing-place Haludovo to zakota  toward Njivice is 1.900 meters.

The road is really nice, known especially for its rich vegetation.

The large presence of aerosols, due to the proximity of the sea and pine trees, has a rich healing properties for human health.

In 1953, the promenade was partly extended to Njivice.The last reconstruction and extension of the Paradise road  began in 2015 with continued construction, restoration of plants and planting new pine trees along the path.
