For this reason, we have decided to write a blog with the list of beaches for dogs along the Croatian coast from Istria to Dalmatia and on the islands. We will write about these beaches, the destinations where they are located, and also about villas situated in these destinations.
Podvorska beach in Crikvenica
Monty's Dog Beach
This is one of the best dog beaches in Croatia. The beach and its surroundings are perfectly groomed. There is also a great atmosphere at the beach due to the beach bar next to it so you can relax there as well.
The beach bar is called Monty. The owners own a dog hotel as well. For this reason, all the facilities are adjusted for pets. Thus, in Monty Beach Bar your dog can drink a dog beer or enjoy a snack of dog chips. There are dog showers and a lounge area at the beach and this is why it is rightfully called the best dog beach in Croatia!
Pet-friendly villa in Crikvenica
As we already mentioned we have pet-friendly villas in Crikvenica as well where pets are allowed at request.
