Getting to Susak via city of Rijeka
Traveling by catamaran from Rijeka is probably the and fastest most convenient way to get to Susak. The ship itself is air-conditioned, while the trip is about 4 hours long.
There are a few options how to reach Rijeka:
- by car - use the highways
- by bus - bus terminal at the west side of the harbor (by foot 10 minutes away from the catamaran)
- by train - train terminal is a bit further than the bus terminal (by foot 20 minutes away from the catamaran)
- by plain - there are a few airports near Rijeka - look it up yourself
- by boat - Rijeka is well connected with other Croatian coastal cities and Italy
Traveling by car
You will probably use GPS for navigation, which will guide you directly to the dock at which you will board the catamaran.
PARKING IN RIJEKA
If you travel by car, be aware that you might not find a parking place right away, although there is a big parking right along at the harbor or close by.
Although the parking is not guarded, the do charge about 1€ by the hour.
To save some money you can try leaving your car on one of the parking lots of many shopping centers on the town outskirts (for example HERE) and then take a taxi - I usually do that.
Here’s a list of taxi companies which operate in Rijeka:
NOTE: make sure to call the taxi well ahead of time, since in the high season it is not uncommon to wait for taxi for 45 minutes
TRAVELING BY BUS OR TRAIN
The ones traveling by bus or train can leave their luggage in lockers at the main train station. There you can safely store your belongings at 24-hour rate of 15 Kn (2€) for smaller locker and 20 Kn (3€) for larger lockers. That way allow you to roam through Rijeka unburdened, while waiting for the catamaran.
