The sea temperature in Kvarner has been measured, recorded and monitored for more than 30 years. The sea temperature in Kvarner is characterized by its particularities, one of the most important being that the sea temperature on the Kvarner islands is usually higher than the sea temperature in the coastal towns of Kvarner. Thus, the sea temperature in the town of Krk [LINK] will often be higher than the sea temperature in Rijeka [LINK] or the sea temperature in Opatija. [LINK] The town with the lowest sea temperature in Kvarner is Senj, where the sea temperature is lower due to the large number of cold underground sources of fresh water that reduce the sea temperature and salinity. The sea temperature in Kvarner is measured at more than 20 locations, and it is interesting to note that one of the highest sea temperatures ever recorded in the Republic of Croatia was recorded in Kvarner, on Rab, when in 2005 it was 29.5 degrees Celsius. The sea temperature in Kvarner is usually lower than the sea temperature in Istria [LINK] and the sea temperature in Dalmatia, [LINK] and is similar to the sea temperature in Croatia. [LINK]
The temperature is perfect for swimming for all ages.
Although technically you can bathe at any temperature, which is why some recommend bathing in cold water for various health benefits, the best temperature to bathe at is between 20 and 23°C. For most bathers, this is the ideal temperature, especially because it reduces the chance of shock in older and sick people.
For babies from 0 to 3 months, the minimum temperature at which they should be bathed is 32°C. For those from 3 to 12 months, the temperature can be slightly lower - 30°C. For older children, the temperature should be around 25°C. The temperature of any baby bath should never exceed 35°C.
It is very simple to protect yourself from the sun, just make sure to drink enough water, use sunscreen with a high factor (30+) and avoid the sun when UV radiation and temperature are at their highest, which is from 10 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon.
