    The Split area along the Dalmatian Coast is one of the most popular beach areas in Croatia, with a reputation that continues to grow internationally. Barely known a century ago, Bacvice Beach has quickly become one of the biggest bathing and beach areas along the Dalmatian Coast, so much so that "Let's go to Bacvice!" is practically shorthand for summer fun in the sun in Croatia.

    Bacvice attracts everyone from locals… read more »

    The beach of Zlatni Rat is one of Croatia's best known with the most familiar view probably being from above. From here you will be left in very little doubt as to why the beach is often referred to locally as the "Golden Horn". Zlatni Rat juts out into the Adriatic Sea forming a triangle of beach fringing pine forest which is home to the ruins of a Roman villa.

    Shimmering likes a diamond in the Adriatic, Dubovica Beach is particularly alluring beach escape in Croatia. Far from the big towns and beaches, the island of Hvar has long been a popular Croatian getaway. It's just a short hop between Hvar and the famed Dalmatian Coast.

    The little town of Hvar is nearby but this beach is all about natural beauty and connecting with nature. This is one of the loveliest… read more »

    Brela Beach

    Travel time from Split: approx 1 hr

    Brela is a charming little town on Croatia's Adriatic coast roughly midway between Split and Makarska. With the backdrop of the Biokovo mountains and lapped by the crystal clear azure waters of the Adriatic this largely unspoilt stretch of coast is quite stunning.

    There are a number of separate coves that make up the 6km stretch of Brela Beach. All are fringed with an abundance of pine trees and formed… read more »

    Murvica Beach can be found on the island of Brac, and offers white sands and picture postcard views towards the island of Hvar. Largely virgin in set up, the amenities at Murvica Beach are limited to a car park above the sands on a clifftop perch, and a snack bar selling refreshments in the same place, although overnight accommodation of varying forms can be found around three kilometres away.

    Croatia's beaches and coastline are beginning to get a little more attention, and rightfully so. They are among the most stunning and sun-kissed in all of Europe with a growing number of accolades to back this up. Stiniva Beach was voted Europe's Best Beach in The Guardian a few years back, and with good reason.

    First and foremost, it is quite breathtaking. Generally speaking Croatia's beaches are famous for their white… read more »

    Situated about 2km from Makarska town centre is Cvitačka beach. Cvitacka is everything you would expect from a Croatian beach; crystal clear, blue water and near white sand. Well, it isn't exactly sand, more a mix of sharp pebbles and shingle. Not exactly perfect for walking on, but looks idyllic and is the reason the water is so clear along this coast.

    The beach itself is quite idyllic with the local pine… read more »

    If you're looking for a beautiful place to bask in the sun, bronze your skin, and bare all, it's hard to beat Nugal Beach. Croatia's best known nudist beach, Nugal Beach is a place where all things natural are celebrated.

    The beach here is a small stretch of soft white sand bookmarked by sheer rocky cliffs. Far and away Nugal Beach's most notable feature is the waterfall which cascades down the… read more »
