Bordered by the Adriatic Sea and enjoying a Mediterranean climate, Southern Croatia is adorned with an exceptional coastline shaped by magnificent sandy or pebble beaches. Considered to be the most beautiful in all of Europe, the most beautiful beaches can be seen on the inhabited islands of Croatia.
Before crossing the Croatian islands colonising the Adriatic Sea, linger in the city of Split. A small pearl of the Croatian Riviera, Split hosts a splendid sand beach that has received the Blue Flag. Perfect for swimming, the beach of Bačvice will also give you the opportunity to participate in the Picigin, a traditional palm game. Revellers will be entertained on the side of bars and restaurants on the beach, day and night.
Off the coast of Split lies the island of Vis, home to the wildest beaches of Croatia. If you want to enjoy the most spectacular of all, head to the South of the island. Located near the village of Žužec, the beach of Stiniva has been recognised as "Best beach of Europe in 2016". A magnificent pebble beach in the shape of a funnel, Stivina is protected by steep cliffs and offers a splendid sunset.
If you want to stay in this festive atmosphere, go to the beach of Novalja Zrće. A meeting place for music lovers, this beautiful pebble beach hosts many festivities in summer, such as the Black Sheep Festival. The beach of Novalja Zrće is also a delight for the jet-skiing and bathing enthusiasts, who will enjoy their day in the water after a night of madness.
It is in an equally breathtaking environment that transports you to the splendid beach of Zlatni Rat, located on the island of Brač. Now a magnificent symbol of Croatia, this river of white and smooth pebbles is about thirty kilometres from the village of Supetar. Nicknamed the "Golden Horn", the latter, in the shape of a point, reveals different shapes according to the currents and certainly offers the most beautiful natural scenery in the world.
