After travelling through Croatia, we’ve come to expect ‘beaches’ on the rocks, and this beach definitely delivered. The water was warm, the access to the water was easy and if you want shade or a beverge, both are available.

Very nice for a relaxing walk along the coast. It's a long way including some shady and tree area with kids playgrounds and benches. Very relaxing!

Nice seaside walk, about 2 km long. Along the way there are a lot of box bars serving excellent coffee.

Barcola is a strip of cement where the locals like to sunbathe with a big book in their hands. It's a very proletariat type of beach and gives you a sense of the locals. Nice.
