Top 5 bays in Croatia that you must visit

Croatia can really boast of a beautiful coast and more than 1,000 islands, which makes it the perfect destination for all sailors and travel enthusiasts. If you have your own boat or rent it without a skipper, we bring you a list of the most beautiful bays that you should visit while in Croatia.

  1. 1.      Sakarun – this marvelous cove on Dugi otok must definitely be on the top of the list, the combination of crystal clear sea and white sand stretches for as much as 800 meters, with 350 meters of shallow to medium deep water that even the youngest will enjoy swimmers. The beach is surrounded by a pine forest that provides the necessary shade during the hottest days. Of course, we must mention that the beach on this island proudly carries a blue flag, which signifies the international symbol of preserving nature and the quality of the beach.
  2. Telaščica – cove Telaščica, after which the entire Nature Park got its name, is located in the southeastern part of Dugi otok. It is one of the largest and best protected natural harbors on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. Thanks to its exceptional beauty, wealth and importance, this bay, surrounded by 13 islands and islets, and containing six islets within the bay, was declared a Nature Park in 1988.
  3. Stiniva- a small beach, covered in round stones, located on the southern part of the island of Vis. What makes Stiniva perfect are its closest surrounding areas, crystal clear sea, as well as its position with a beautiful view of the Adriatic. This bay is a favorite of many sailors and yachtsmen and was declared the best beach in Europe by the European Best Destination!
  4. Vinogradišće –one of the most famous coves in the area of ​​the Paklin Islands, not far from the town of Hvar, a beach known to tourists as Palmižana. Long and narrow, partly gravelly and partly sandy, it is very interesting for families with children.
  5. Lopud –known as the most beautiful bay in the south of Dalmatia, is located on one of the Elaphites, which bears the same name as the bay itself. The mild Mediterranean climate, lush Mediterranean and subtropical vegetation with cypresses, lemons, oranges, pines and palm trees, numerous beautiful beaches (Šunj) and the possibility of pleasant walks along the coast make Lopud an extremely attractive destination. The most famous Lopud attractions are the Franciscan monastery and the 19th-century park, which is believed to have once been the home of a villa.

Of course, there are many more coves, islands and beaches to list, but we believe that everyone will find something for themselves in these 5. If you decide to go to one of these bays, but you don’t have a boat or a skipper, the Villa Rita Team is at your disposal with its boat and a skipper that you can hire and organize your own trip.
