Croatia Ranks Second For World’s Best Beaches

Croatia Online - Vinisce

There’s never a shortage of interesting Croatian news stories on Croatia Week and today is no exception. Sister site, Croatia Camping Guide, will shortly be reporting on Croatia’s campsites in the news, but, for this posting, we’ll be featuring Croatia’s beaches as one of them has made number two in Skyscanner’s list of 10 of the World’s Best Beaches.

Lovrečina beach is between Postira and Pučišća on the north coast of Brač island. It’s one of Croatia’s fairly rare sandy beaches and it stays shallow until the very end of the bay. It’s well protected and a similar shape to the bay pictures above – Vinišće – which is one of my favourites. You can read the full story and see Lovrečina bay in its full glory on this link - Croatia Week - Croatian Beach Named 2nd Nicest In The World. And you can find out a little more about Lovrečina beach on this link Croatia Gems – Lovrečina

If you want to go back to the original skyscanner top ten, follow this link - Skyscanner - 10 Of The World's Best Beaches. It was written in 2013 so maybe there’s a new one coming along with a few more Croatian beaches in it?!

We’ve found so many great beaches, on our various travels around Croatia, that it’s very difficult to rank them. However we’re trying to do just that as we go through the photos of our epic, early summer, road trip. Vinišće, above, makes it because it’s such a peaceful settlement and a great place to get away from the masses in summer. Zlatni rat beach, near Bol, on Brač island, pictuted below, probably has to feature too as the most photographed beach and one of the best for water sports.

Wherever you go on the Croatian coast , though, you’re never very far away from a great beach, or even a seclection of beaches with something for everyone.

Sadly, the website we featured in the 2006 posting is no longer around. It was brilliant, way ahead of its time and there’s been nothing to match it since. However there are plenty of  other  websites with sections on beaches around and below are just a few.
