Pinpointing the “best beach” in Croatia is like finding the “best grain of sand,” in other words, impossible!

Whether you are a family, active group, single or couples looking for a romantic getaway, there are many options to choose from.  “Life is a beach,” and Adventures Croatia will find yours!

Let’s start with the spots known for their sheer beauty:

  • Paradise Beach on the island of Rab is one of the most famous beaches in the Adriatic.  That’s because locals and tourists alike love its silken sand, shallow clear water, and the surrounding green pine forests ideal for shade.  With a large sports facility and variety of restaurants, cafes and bars, this beach has something for everyone.

Secluded Beaches

When you want seclusion, where can you go to escape the high season crowds?  Adventures Croatia can steer you to spots where it’s easy to believe you are marooned in paradise.

On the green island of Lastovo in southern Dalmatia are beaches so peaceful you will feel that you have escaped civilization.  With so many beautiful bays and exquisite lagoons, here is divine tranquility.  There are uninhabited islands all around accessible only by boat and coves where you can hide away and dream.

Hidden beaches abound on the island of Vis which is situated farther offshore than any other inhabited island in the Adriatic.  Visitors love the remote locations and swaying palm trees.  Gorgeous Stoncica Bay has been called the “Croatian Hawaii” because of its resemblance to that island.  Along with some of the other secret spots, here is where you go when you need a vacation from civilization.
