As Croatia gains popularity as a tourist destination, it can be hard to know where to start. Here are our top tips on what to watch out for if you're visiting Croatia for the first time.
Croatia is known for many things; the rich culture, its proud heritage and the beautiful sights you will see wherever you decide to visit on your holiday. Many people visit Croatia to view the historical buildings and cultured city centres, whilst enjoying the wonderful Mediterranean sun. Another reason many people visit Croatia is to take advantage of the crystal clear seas and beaches. Whilst Croatia isn’t known for white sandy soft beaches, the clean pebbly beaches are still some of the most admired in Europe. Here are just some of our favourite Croatian beaches.
Zlatni Rat, Brac
Brac is home to many beautiful beaches but the most well-known and visited is the Zlatni Rat. Often referred to as the Golden Horn, the Zlatni Rat has regularly been listed as one of the top beaches in Europe and is a popular tourist destination. The yellow pebbly beach is not too harsh on your feet and the cool water creates a welcome respite from the warm weather. The beautiful pine forest located next to the beaches create a welcome cool shelter from the sun, also.

Pakleni Islands, Hvar
The Pakleni Islands are a very famous tourist resort in Hvar with beautiful coves, beaches and marine life that is perfect for snorkelling. The Pakleni Islands consist of 22 islands, which means you can have your pick of beaches, some more hidden and secluded than others. There are also a few nudist beaches throughout these islands, so be sure to ask your guide where these are if you wish to avoid them. These islands are only accessible from Hvar port, but taxis and excursions run often enough through high season.
Betina Cave, Dubrovnik
Not everyone wants to visit the beautiful beaches of Croatia just for the sunbathing, but rather for the variety of water sports and activities that are on offer. Dubrovnik is a popular spot for a range of activities in the crystal clear sea including sea kayaking tours, snorkelling and renting out jet skis. All of these make it easier to get to Betina Cave, a secluded cave that offers shelter, shade and the perfect private getaway. Whilst it is relatively easy to get to by water taxi, this beach will still offer serene surroundings and crystal clear waters without the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik.
