While not yet as famous as its Brazilian counterpart, Croatia’s Copacabana Beach has a huge amount to offer. Located in Seka Bay, on the north side of the Lapad Peninsula, Copacabana has views to Daksa and the Elafiti Islands. It lies very close to Dubrovnik’s tourist zone of Babin Kuk, used as a base for exploring the UNESCO-listed Old Town.
The largest of Dubrovnik’s beaches at 200 metres in length, Copacabana is a popular choice with families because of the shallow entrance into the warm glistening waters, and the huge number of amenities and activities available to keep young minds entertained.
On the rounded pebbles themselves visitors will discover a children’s water park, and facilities for both volleyball and tennis. But it’s in the water that Copacabana really excels itself, with water sports as diverse as paddle boating, jet skiing, parasailing and kayaking all on offer here.
What’s more, Copacabana Beach has a good number of food options without the need to travel very far, alongside toilets, changing rooms, outdoor showers, and sunbeds and parasols for hire.
Copacabana also has facilities for those with difficulty moving, with a sea lift to take people in and out of the water on a level section of concrete.
Come late evening, Copacabana remains a lively area, with nightclubs promoting foam parties that don’t come to an end until the sunrise of the following day.
