Beaches & hotels in Croatia

by pwoods87

Hey, im planning on taking my girlfriend away to croatia for a week. We're just wondering if the beaches are sandy there as we heard that the beaches in croatia are mostly stoney?

Also any hotels you recommend would be really appreciated!

Of course, there are great sandy beaches in Croatia,not so many, but who likes them, can always find one :
Island Rab-the biggest and most known is Rajska Plaža
Crikvenica, Selce,
On other islands you can also find sandy beaches.
Island Korčula; Pržina near Korčula town and in Lumbarda
Island Hvar:Mina near the hotel Hvar(ex Mina) in Jelsa etc
Here is a useful link:

We have even an island almost whole composed of sand: island Susak
Csilla, it is not good to give misleading answers, where have you been in Croatia at all?

As a Croatian traveler - I agree with posting no 1. Croatia is a beautiful country and one of my favorite ever places is Dubrovnik but if you spend time seeking out sandy beaches you spend too much time on the road and not enough exploring this great place. The most pleasant beaches that I found close to Dubrovnik were on the island of Lopud which is well worth a visit. My advice - get some beach shoes and enjoy the crystal clear Adriatic.

Davesut, have you noticed any sandy beach on the above link?

Hi we have visited various places in Croatia (as yet not the islands) but we are not beach people. One place we did stay which we loved was Biograd which had had beaches and the other half harbour. To be honest we did not visit the beaches but according to the website for Biograd they say they have both sandy and stoney beaches maybe worth a look because it is a lovely place.

I agree with both #1 and #2! :)
The Croatian mainland is virtually devoid of sandy beaches. I was there twice and had a hard time finding anything decent - on the mainland. However, I have never been to the islands - and this is where #2 says the sandy beaches exist. I, too, have heard that there are islands with sandy beaches, but have no first-hand knowledge.

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

Stradun - the artery of Dubrovnik

by KristaB

Stradun used to be a channel dividing two settlements. It was filled up in 12th century - joining together two small communities. The building of city walls begun at that time, too, because of frequent attacks by Venetians, Arabs, Serbs, Macedonians and some other intruders.

Surrender and enjoy. Evening is the right time for slow walk up and down (because it isn't very long, of course).
Take a walk to Trubadur bar, and check if there is some jam session announcement for that evening. In that case, don't even think about getting a seat after 20.00. Grab one comfy bamboo chair and order something good. I'll have Pina Colada, please.
And after the music stops echoing through narrow streets, there will still be many smiling souls wandering up and down Stradun promenade.

Rector for a month

by karenincalifornia

Long, long ago, there was a TV show called "Queen For a Day", but actually Sixteenth century Dubrovnik was the precursor with "Rector for a Month".

Only noblemen were eligible to serve in government. Townsmen and commoners were barred. The highest office in the state of Dubrovnik was that of the Rector, whose office lasted only a month, which could have made for interesting government. Term limits must not have existed -- one Dubrovnik poet, Rajina, served as Rector 7 times.

The Rector’s Palace was built in the 15th century and was the seat of government in the Dubrovnik Republic as well as the residence of the Rector.

This made me wonder if the new first lady of the month (Madame Rector) came in and redecorated the Rector's Palace every time the new Rector moved in. Nancy Reagan would have had a hey day (or hey days) if Ronald had served multiple terms as Rector.

Zuljana, a beautiful beach

by davesut

One of the beaches that we travelled to - Zuljana. I thought the best beach/village area that we saw. A winding drive from the main road on the peninnsula into the village. About a dozen buildings including a couple of cafes and accomodation which will undoubtedly be booked up in advance. well worth a visit.

Next, We Moved To Lopud Island...

by coceng

Next on the agenda, we moved to Lopud island.
LOPUD is placed between Sipan and Kolocep and the most developed tourist place on Elafiti.
On Lopud You can enjoy crystal clear sea and beaches, the best known being the sandy beach Sunj.
The photo shows the sight as we were moving out of Sipan, going to Lopud.

Boat to the hotel

by solopes

We were informed that we had a public boat connecting Dubrovnik to Plat (our hotel location) and Mljet, but we had no time (and no need) to use it.

I felt sorry, because this could allow us the only angle of town we didn't see: from the sea.
