Whether you want to relax under the sun or you want some adventures in search of hidden treasures, Croatia is the right place for you. This country that looks on to the Mediterranean has spectacular beaches, some of them are even considered among the most beautiful locations in the world.
Croatia hides some natural treasures. If you are going to choose your summer holiday, let me suggest you six beaches you should see.
1. Zlatni Rat
Zlatni Rat beach is a remarkable natural spot, located near Bol, on Brac Island, the largest island in Dalmatia. The island is known for wine, fish, olives and its precious white stone. Due to the perfect winds and waves, it is the favourite place of surfers and kite-surfers.

LINK IN BIO Zlatni Rat beach is a remarkable spot created by Mother Nature and a highlight on Croatia’s coastline, located near Bol, on Brac Island, which is the largest island in Dalmatia. The island is known for wine, fish, olives and its precious white stone. The exact shape and length of the landform varies with regard to changes in tide, current and wind. A reliable afternoon westerly wind known as the Maestral has made the beach a top destination for windsurfers. The lack of sand and seaweed on the beach make it also a perfect location for snorkelling. Zlatni Rat beach brings fun to every one though: either being active or just sitting in a beach chair and enjoying the sunset behind the mountains with a glass of Croatian wine. You’ll have golden moments on this golden beach! #CroatiaFullOfLife #ZlatniRat #summer #Islandhopping #EpicWeek #Kroatien #Chorwacja #Living_europe
2. Stiniva beach
Stiniva beach on Vis island was recently voted as the “Best Beach of Europe in 2016” by European Best Destinations. This hidden by nature can only be reached by hiking or a taxi boat, but is definitely worth the effort.
If you want to feel like on a private beach don’t miss another hidden treasure, Lubenice on the island of Cres. There are usually just few swimmers and the view looks like from a picture-book.

4. Vela Plaža
If you are more into gorgeous, picturesque places, sandy beaches, natural bays and colourful landscapes, the Island of Krkis the right choice for you. Vela plaža in Baška is famous for those attributes and has many sports opportunities.
5. Rajska beach
If you are looking for a true little paradise, don’t miss Rajska beach on the island of Rab (which means “Paradise Beach”. Sandy beach, shallow water and water slides that are ideal for playing and having a lot of family fun makes it a real paradise on earth.
6. Saplunara beach
If you are looking for something totally different and unusual try the Saplunara beach of the island Mljet; the most rural island of Croatia and a natural diamond. There are no hotels or restaurants at the beach, just some small local hotspots with typical Croatian food, surrounded by a dense pine tree forest.
