Excursion to Merška Pit

Discover and explore one of the most interesting natural phenomena on the island of Cres.

Merška Pit is one of the rare, but truly impressive examples of a cover-collapse sinkhole on Cres. The sinkhole is thought to have developed a long time ago with the collapse of a giant underground cavern. You will be able to witness first hand how steep and rocky its side walls are, and the large volumes of rock debris and stone blocks at the bottom of the sinkhole will give you an idea of the large-scale breaking-off and collapse of rocks that took place in the past.

From Kimen Hotel we head to Bartolomej – an authentic old church that bears witness to the earliest days of life on Cres. After that, we climb down to Merška Pit. We then head to the village Merag and then the ferry port for our transfer back.
