A Guide to the Beaches of Croatia
The beaches of Croatia are often the main attraction in this beautiful country, which is no surprise that when summer time comes around, beaches are crowded everywhere. However, having a rough idea of the beaches of Croatia in general might save you both time and help you in planning the perfect beach vacation you came to enjoy.

Zlatni Rat – One of the most famous Adriatic beaches, Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn Beach) is over 500 yards long and is located in Bol on Brac Island. Well known for its distinctive shape (a really sharp triangle) that juts out into the sea, the Golden horn's beauty is probably its main draw. Another unique and rare thing about this beach is that the tip of it chianges directions according to the wind and waves, so if you've been here once and it was a certain angle, chances are it'll be different the next time you arrive!

Paradise Beach – The crystal clear waters that lap the fine sandy coastline of paradise beach are what draw the tourists and locals alike here year after year. With its shallow waters perfect for families and beginner swimmers, pine trees that offer shade during the summer and just plain old beauty, its not hard to see why this place resembles Paradise. Located about 12km from the town of Rab, Paradise Beach has been honored with the blue flag award and is arguably one of the best beaches Croatia has to offer.

Brela Beaches – Brela Beaches are renowned throughout the world, even if you don't know the name, you might have seen it on postcards and magazines. Entered into Forbes "top 20 beaches of the world" list, the two best beaches to visit in Brela would be Punta Rata and Berulija. Both of these long white pebbled beaches have been awarded with a blue flag and are family friendly as well with lifeguards and life saving equipment all within reach. Both these beaches also handle the disabled and offer various on site chianging and catering facilities.

Peljesac Beaches – The beaches on the Peljesac Peninsula are untouched, picturesque and some of the most romantic beaches in Croatia. Head for the Beautiful Vucine beach in Zuljana; a real hidden gem within a gorgeous setting of crystalline waters and porcelain sand or Trstenick in Vodice; a secluded beach perfect for that sunset walk with your loved one.
