Due to the uniqueness of nature and the favourable climatic conditions that are found in the Kvarner, this area has long been known as a destination for health tourism. The number of health care clinics and institutions are indeed large with specialised centres for the treatment and rehabilitation of cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses, orthopaedics, dentistry and cosmetic surgery.
