Tribalj is one of the most famous places for paraglider flying in Croatia, and probably has the biggest number of flights during whole year. It is well known among foreign pilots who were here and for sure they rember it as realy cool place to enjoy fling.
Tribalj is not the place for making big 100 km XC flights but more for relaxed ridge and thermal flying along 20 km long ridge with height going from 300-800 m above sea level. As you are flying very close to the sea and the landing is at 50 m ASL pilot has very beautiful view on the Kvarner bay, coast and the island in front. Four sure it would be possible to jump to other island in front.
Even though that flying place is close to the sea, we never have strong sea breeze so we are enjoying all our flights in thermals. Maximum heights are in July but it can be any time of the year and go up to 3200 m ASL. Off course those days are rare and usually the ceiling is at 1500-1700m ASL.
Because of the light sea breeze we have lot of flyable days during whole year and even some nice days in winter time. It is not problem to make 3 hour flight on a nice day in winter time.
For beginners Tribalj is best in the afternoon when the thermals become soft and wide in combination with laminar wind from the south directions. For those who want more Tribalj in the noon can make thermals up to 8m/s so you can have nice and fast XC flight.
More experienced pilots will fly away from the ridge to the inland making some straight or flights with return. Usually best is to catch convergence earlier in the day and then fly with it to inland.
Best flights in Tribalj are up to 80km, but basically it is place for fun flying. Flights can be found on XCGlobe.
If you want to combine sea side, swimming, and sea activities but you also want to fly, than Tribalj is perfect place for your vacations. Good for loners and good for groups or families. Local activities can fill up your time when is not flyable and you can enjoy in local area.
If you don't fly or you would like to show someone how does it look like, than instructor pilots from the local club can take you for a tandem flight.
