Our history & location
welcoming, intimate, comfort, security
Camp Bijar is located close to the ancient town of Osor in the southern part of the island of Cres. Camping around the Osor region dates back to around 1958 when a French group first established a campsite close to the town.
In 1965 Jadranka d.d. purchased a site located about 10 minutes walk from Osor consisting of a beautiful pine forest and built what is today Camp Bijar, now owned and operated by Jadranka turizam d.o.o.
The camp occupies around 5 hectares of land with around 300 metres of beach. Within the boundaries of the camp are several archaeological items of interest, including the stone bollards on the beach-front used for mooring boats which date from the Roman empire, whilst the whole of the bay of Bijar is a protected archaeological area.
Our guests and what they think about us
One of the objectives of the camp's staff is to ensure that guests always feel welcome, a mission that is certainly endorsed by visitor numbers. Over 20,000 guests stay at the camp each year of whom around 60% have visited before. And its not just the number of guest s that prove the point ... comments we have received include the following:
"We have been visiting this paradise for 41 years ... "
"Camp Bijar is almost a drug for me, wonderful sea, quiet atmosphere, very friendly staff ... my little corner of paradise ... "
