beli ... tramontana ...

The peacefulness of the place, forgotten senses of the omnipresent nature: this is exactly what we are searching for and endeavouring to obtain. It is Beli – a mystic place stretching on a hill at 130 m above the sea, in the northwest part of the island of Cres. It's been known by those longing for quietness, sunshine and mystery of time passing by with the pace of tramontane winds.

The place features some historical sights: a Roman bridge, St. Mary's church from 1500, gothic chapel of St. Ante at the local graveyard, an old stone grinder for making olive oil. Even the little port has a historical significance (it's been partly reconstructed due to the damage caused by a severe sea storm) with the adjoining pebble beach washed by crystal clear water.

The place is surrounded by centenarian woods and paths which take you to the unspoiled nature revealing hidden and forbidden villages that give a particular charm to this trekking pleasure.

On your way, you are certain to be overlooked by griffon vultures flying above you..
