My Top 5 Favorite Beaches in Croatia

My top 5 Favorite Beaches in Croatia

For all of my friends and readers who are currently in Europe enjoying the summer and maybe thinking about going to the beach anytime soon, this is the post you were waiting for :P
In the last few years, Croatia has become a top summer destination in Europe because of its incredible coastline and light blue sea. There are tons of different beaches to enjoy in this country and it can get overwhelming to decide where to go. So, after spending the last two summers exploring this country I thought about sharing my favorite beaches. 
I'm not saying these 5 options are the best, the truth is that with a very long coastline and more than a thousand islands to discover, there is definitely a place for everyone and endless alternatives but I wanted to share with you the ones I consider my favorites and also to tell you why.  So without further talking let's go to the beach! ;)

1- The Must-Visit: Zlatni Rat

I felt like I had to go to Croatia to visit this beach, it was definitely a must! Zlatni Rat beach (located on the island of Brac) is absolutely incredible, the water is unbelievably clear and it has the most beautiful light blue color. Even the view you get while you are walking towards this beach is totally worth it because you are able to see that golden horn shape formed by the pebble beach. It's absolutely stunning!

2- The Chic: Banje Beach

If you are more into those beach lounges where you can listen to some cool music, chill and enjoy some drinks while seeing the most amazing view of the Dubrovnik walls, then Banje beach is definitely the place for you. 
It's also a great spot for people watching since, for example, many famous bloggers and celebrities have been there too. So, grab your favorite pair of sunglasses and your trendiest swimsuit and enjoy the chic experience ;)

3- The Paradisiac: Sunj beach 

This beach located on Lopud Island (near Dubrovnik) is one of the sandy beaches you can find in Croatia, which makes it really special because most of them are pebble beaches. This one is not as crowded as the other two I have just mentioned so it really gives you that paradisiac and more private experience. If you want to read more about my trip to this island you can check my post here.

4- The Urban: Bacvice beach

This is a very popular beach located in Split. What I like about this one is that is located right in the city center practically so it's very easy to get there. I also have very good memories of this beach since it was the first one I have visited in Croatia and it was super close to the hostel I stayed in at that time, so it's kind of special to me. Anyway, if you happen to go to Split, you will probably end up visiting this one ;)

5- The Hidden Gem: Sablicevo beach

Last but not the least I wanted to include this hidden gem because when I was in Croatia last summer I have decided to spend a couple of days in Rijeka, which is not the most touristic city and I have also heard some people telling me that this city didn't have any good beaches. However, I was able to find this place that completely blew my mind! I couldn't believe how this amazing beach was just hidden in the middle of the city! The water was completely clear, clean and it had the most amazing color! Also, what I loved about this beach is that it wasn't super crowded and most of the people there were locals, so I felt like I was one of them ;)
