It looks good in all the pictures and always looked like sand to me but it’s just another stone beach that very commercialised place for dudes to be seen and hang out not the cheapest and can get... more »
It is a nice place to see but only if you are staying somewhere without water access. It is busy but lots to see and do in the area for sure! more »
Being Australian we're used to beautiful golden sandy beaches so it's tough to be overly enthusiastic about a pebble outcrop off the coast of Croatia. However, I can say we did enjoy the "experience" and if anything else it makes me appreciate ours back home even more. At least there are no sharks here 😁👍
I've given the beach one star because there is no option for a lower rating. It probably is lovely beach but it is absolutely rammed full in peak season with many, many boat trips from the mainland. We went there early September and the entire length of the beach was full for about eight or nine rows back from the water's edge and with hundreds of people in the wooded area behind. If you are visiting on a boat trip in peak times, save yourself the trouble of visiting this beach and walk part of the way from the harbour and enjoy one or more of the more relaxed and less crowded coves and small beaches before you get to the 'main attraction'. On a positive, the sea around this part is stunningly clear.
