Top 5 Beaches in Croatia according to The Guardian

Recently The Guardian made a list of 40 best beaches in Europe and 5 of them are in Croatia. You will be surprised by the list, owing to the fact that the world-famous beach of Croatia - the Golden Cape isn’t even listed.


The Guardian made the list just at the right time if you are looking for your dream destination for 2019 holidays. Except for the beauty, there were many other factors like accessibility, available activities and food offer that were important while choosing the most beautiful beaches.

The list was created by travelers based on their own experience.

We are proud that our beaches are well recognized, even considered to be on par with beaches in Italy, France and Spain.

Hereby are the 5 best beaches in Croatia according to The Guardian:

1. Murvica Beach, Brac Island

Murvica beach is located on the southern coast of Brac Island an is only a few kilometers from the famous Golden Cape away.
