Punat is a place located on the eastern part of the island of Krk where rainfall and wind have a great influence on the sea temperature. Punat is located in a bay where it is sheltered from the wind from the open sea, so the sea temperature in Punat is usually higher than the sea temperature in the nearby town of Krk [LINK]. The sea temperature in the summer months reaches a maximum of 29 degrees Celsius, and due to its excellent position in Punat, it is possible to swim until the month of October. It is definitely advisable to avoid contact with sea water in the winter months when the sea temperature is low and such sea water can have serious consequences for people’s health.
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.
