Untouched nature, fascinating biodiversity and a rarely-encountered rich underwater world make the island of Cres a nature’s jewel.
Your wishes and comfort come first, but we also pay special attention to the preservation of nature and maintaining a clean environment.
We have become your eco-friendly oasis, where everything is directed at preserving natural resources so you could experience them over again.
The proof of our commitment and hard work does not lie only in the Green Key and Blue Flag certifications obtained by Kovačine Camp, but also in the decision taken by the company to only use “green” electricity.
Kimen Hotel and Kovačine Camp use “green” electricity and are the holders of the ZelEn 2017/2018 certificate and label, guaranteeing that the electricity used across the company comes from renewable sources.
Green Key is a voluntary international label awarded to tourist accommodation establishments, including hotels, hostels, motels, camps and camping resorts.
Green Key attests that an accommodation establishment reduces its negative impacts on the environment, uses resources effectively and employs trained staff, familiar with green business practices and wanting to be a part of it, and informs its guests on ecological orientation and sustainable development.
The Green Key criteria include environmental management, raising guests’ awareness, staff engagement, water savings, cleaning and washing, waste and recycling, energy savings, buying produce, ventilation and heating, administration and management, green activities and areas intended for parking and parks.
Blue Flag is an international eco-award project run by the worldwide Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) with the aim of protecting the marine and coastal environment, that has for many years been successfully carried out in Europe and other parts of the world on an annual basis.
The Blue Flag symbolises a preserved, safe and pleasant environment intended for relaxation, fun and recreation, a well-defined coastal management system and sustainable tourism development.
The Blue Flag status means excellent tourism promotion for the beach, based on high-quality service, clean sea and coast and high degree of development and maintenance of the beach.
We are the proud holders of the ECOCAMPING certificate for Kovačine Camp! We humbly appreciate all the resources given to us by mother nature, and want to make sure future generations experience them as well.
That is why we advocate greater sustainability in camping tourism. The Ecocamping certificate promotes environmental protection and nature conservation, safety and quality in the camping industry. The prefix “eco” stands for both “ecology” and “economy”, because the environment and economy go hand in hand with ECOCAMPING.
