Thanks to a coast decorated with islands and beaches that dazzle under the scorching sun, Croatia is the popular destination in the summer, especially if you trust the Adriatic Sea as a guide. Today we will take you to discover the most beautiful beaches to visit by boat in Croatia.
There’s a reason Saharun is a constant contender for the best Croatian beaches, and one look at this heavenly paradise is enough to see why. Located on the northwestern tip of Dugi Otok, the last of the Zadar archipelago series of islands, the magnificent Caribbean Sea of the Sahara has received praise from some of Britain’s biggest media.
With pearly white sand and 800 meters of coastline, Saharun is protected by a long bay which has a pleasant temperature for swimming all summer. Surrounded by pine forests that promise shade on a hot day, this summer oasis is only enriched by a few beach bars where you can cool off and recharge your batteries. But you shouldn’t expect more action.
Located at the foot of the cliff between Makarska and Tucepi, the secluded Nugal Beach is the jewel of the Makarska Riviera and a popular naturist destination. Much easier to reach by sailboat than a 30-minute rocky walk from town, mysterious Nugal is gaining popularity and was voted one of the best beaches in Europe just last year!
Since almost all the lists of the best beaches in Croatia contain the unique Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn), we thought we would add the lesser known beauty of the island of Brač: the Lovrečina bay. Located between the towns of Postira and Pučišća, Lovrečina beach is located in a deep wooded bay, famous for its sandy bottom that stretches for almost 100 meters.
Lovrečina is perfect for those looking for a quiet day at the beach with picturesque views no matter where you turn. Nearby it is also possible to visit the remains of an early Christian basilica and an ancient Roman summer villa!
Located on the southern coast of Hvar, it’s no wonder this Vogue approved beach is on our list and so many more. The charm of this pebble paradise is underlined by the 19th century summer villa of the Kasandrić family and the traditional Konoba-style restaurant where you can enjoy freshly caught fish and local wine while admiring the turquoise abyss.
The best beach in Europe in 2016 is also a must for anyone spending a sailing holiday in Croatia. Located in the southern part of the island of Vis, the beach of Stiniva is located in the bay of the same name, although not very visible, thanks to its high rocky surroundings, which also provide natural shade for bathers. As it is not the most easily accessible beach, Stiniva has retained its natural beauty, but is gaining popularity as the summer passes.
