Makarska Riviera Beaches
With the arrival of sunnier days, we are starting to think more and more about summer. Many of us already started looking for a suitable holiday destination. We chose the Makarska Riviera, which with its long coast offers some of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia. Many of them have been awarded Blue Flags, certificates of excellent water quality. With crystal clear sea, they offer everything you need to attract visitors. Therefore, we have selected for you ten great beaches suitable for relaxing on hot summer days:
1. Makarska beach
The main beach that stretches from the city port to the hotel. This beach with shade offers many activities, from parasailing to windsurfing, lifeguard service, many bars and restaurants, but also accommodation. You can also visit the nearby part of the old town of Makarska.
It can be reached from Makarska or Tučepi. If you are in Makarska, a thirty-minute walk through the Osejeva Forest Park will give you a fantastic view. You can also reach this beach by boat. One of the biggest attractions is the rocky cliffs on the side, which create amazing waterfalls after heavy rain.
3. Punta Rata
This pebble beach is located on the cape, covered with fragrant pine forests and palm trees. In 2004, Forbes Magazine named it the most beautiful European beach, including the popular Copacabana, Costa Del Sol, Maldives, St. Tropez et al. She was also awarded in 2014 on the American news portal The Huffington Post and in 2015 on the Belgian page European Best Destinations. This beach is rocky and the water is entered through sand. Due to the turquoise color of the sea, it has become the most common symbol of the social network Instagram. Suitable for families with children, it offers sun loungers, parasols, showers and a variety of water sports.
The secluded beach is located 6 kilometers north of Brela and one of the most beautiful beaches on the Riviera and in the whole country. This place is suitable for all those who like to hike at sea. The view from the top is definitely worth hiking. The beach with a slightly colder sea than the others is partly nudist, but it is also visited by families who want a little peace and quiet.
5. Ikovac Beach
This pebble beach is located in Baška voda. It stretches along the street that can lead to Brela. There is a bar on the beach so you can relax while your children play in the shallows. After enjoying the joys of the sea, you can refresh yourself at a nearby restaurant. If you prefer an active vacation, you can try banana or tube rides, and those who are brave can rent a jet ski to ride the sea. A few minutes from the beach there is a children's playground and a trampoline that your little ones will adore.
Nikolina beach is located in Baška Voda. It is surrounded by conifers that will provide you with much-needed shade during hot days, while along the beach there is a city promenade, also covered with dense and impenetrable canopy. Young and old, singles and couples with children can enjoy here. The beach has showers, changing cabins and an elevated reconnaissance, from which lifeguards watch you in case you need help. Please note that the entrance to the water is suitable for people with disabilities.
