The crystal clear Adriatic shimmers from every angle in Croatia. Whether you’re driving through the winding Dalmatian coastline into the city of Dubrovnik or wandering the maze of ancient stone streets in Hvar, the sea is never too far away.
From buzzy beaches to serene shores, the one fact beach lovers must be aware of is that there is hardly any sand on Croatian beaches – nearly all of them have fine shingle or pebbles. But the lack of sand paves the way for gloriously clear waters and great shallow paddling spots which are perfect for young families.
Beach resorts in Croatia are unspoiled enclaves where the coastlines and views take centre stage. Many of the beach resorts near Dubrovnik we visited were tucked away with only a single café bar and a handful of sunbeds but that is what makes the beaches even more special and we felt like we stumbled across so many hidden gems.
So pack your beach shoes and towels, and discover some of the very best beach resorts in Croatia with our guide.
