St. Ivan is located in a bay at the foot of Lubenice, a small town on the Croatian island of Cres. The beach is covered with fine pebbles, and the area surrounding the beach is untouched nature, making it ideal for a quiet holiday. The town itself is quite small, but it's a good place to relax and enjoy the scenery. This unusual town built out of stone has a spectacular view over the sea and islands from the village walls. It takes about 45 minutes to walk down and about one hour to climb back up, and if you are not into hiking, the beach is often visited by yachts and we are here to help! :)
Brela Stone Beach 43.3686° N, 16.9299° E
If you find yourself on the stunning Punta Rata beach in Croatia, be sure to check out the Brela Stone. This mighty rock is symbolic of the town of Brela, and is often featured on postcards of both Brela and Croatia. The Brela Stone is covered in pine trees, which seem to defy gravity as they grow out of the stone. The clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea make for a beautiful backdrop to this natural wonder. There are plenty of restaurants and bars along the beach, so you can enjoy a refreshing drink or meal while taking in the incredible views.
Well worth a detour if you are visiting this part of the Dalmatian riviera, the Brela Stone is a must-see.
Banje Beach 42.6417° N, 18.1161° E
Banje Beach is one of the most popular beaches in southern Croatia, due to its stunning location in the city of Dubrovnik. The beach has grown in popularity over the years, as more and more visitors come to experience the unique atmosphere of the city.
Banje Beach is situated beside the old city walls, and offers views of the Lokrum island in the distance. The main reason for its popularity is the fact that it provides the perfect opportunity to take some amazing photos of the cityscape. The beach is also famous for its nightlife, with a number of beachside bars and clubs that stay open until the early hours of the morning.
Dubovica Beach 43.1460° N, 16.5350° E
Probably the best beach near Stari Grad is the one that you can reach by car or bike within 10 minutes. As most of the beaches in Hvar, there is no sand but pebbles. The beach itself is quiet, with a small bar and restaurant and a pine forest behind. It is so beautiful, yet not overcrowded. The water is clear and calm, with rocks lining nearby for decent snorkeling and swimming. Dubovica has a unique vibe that is reminiscent of the 1990s. This beach is definitely something different, and we can see why so many people love it.
Pasjača Beach 42.5134° N, 18.3205° E
When you arrive at the end of the road, you will need to walk 5-10 minutes down a beautiful (but sometimes steep) walkway to the beach. However, the beach is definitely worth the walk! This beach is like something straight out of a movie - the water is crystal clear and the pebble beach is very nice. If you're into snorkeling, you'll be pleased to know that there are some great rocks on both sides of the beach with lots of fish and underwater fauna. However, there are no shops or bars, so remember to bring everything you need with you.
Pritišćina Beach 43.0078° N, 16.1124° E
If you're looking for a truly breathtaking beach experience, you'll want to head to Pritisčina beach. This natural oasis is famous for its clean sea, incredible views, and beautiful rocks and caves. You can even find a hidden bay just a few minutes swim from the shore. There are no restaurants or other amenities, so be sure to bring your own food and water. But the stunning surroundings more than make up for any inconvenience.
As soon as you plunge into the rocks of Pritisčina beach, you'll be mesmerized by its natural beauty. In front of the sea, you can see luxury yachts and boats that will decorate the background of your photos, or even better, take yourself there by boat.
Beach Sakarun 44.1341° N, 14.8725° E
Beach Sakarun is perfect for families with small children. The sand and water are perfect for them to play in all day long. There are also bars that offer refreshments and food, so you can stay well-fed and hydrated while you enjoy the beach. The beach can be a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, but some people may not be so happy with it. The sand can be a bit grassy at the beginning of the season, which can make the beach seem unclean. However, if you take a boat out into the sea, you can enjoy the crystal-clear sea and a beautiful view.
