If you´re just about to think where to head for your next summer vacation, you should keep this place in mind! After our ‘long’ journey through the Balkans, we enjoyed a few days on the beach.

Beaches and water temperature

Notice: If you’re sensible with your feet, you should bring bathing shoes. Almost all beaches in Croatia are stony so you might get hurt.

Water temperatures in June: Once you are inside, everything is fine. Usually I’m a fan of beaches with the sea having bath tub temperatures. I chicken out the moment the water seems to be too cold. This is why I think, I’m quite trustworthy when it comes to that topic!

We spent two nights in Baška Voda, in the Guesthouse Civljak! A little bit up on the hillside, it’s just a five minute walk to the beautiful beach. We had a very clean room, very friendly hosts and the location was just perfect. Aaaaand: It was quite cheap!

The village itself was very lovely. There are a few restaurants at the port offering a lot of delicious seafood. After dinner, you can watch the amazing sunset!

When here, you definitely have to visit Punta Rata Beach and Brela Rock!

Brela Rock is the symbol of Punta Rata Beach and generally for the Makarska Riviera. In 2004 this beach was listed by Forbes among the Top 10 Beaches worldwide. The only European one in that list. Not that there aren’t any other beautiful beaches in Europe. But the water is extremely clean, very clear and offers you all shades of colours between turquoise and dark blue!

Parking came out to be a bit exhausting. Just be sure to come early and bring enough coins What we didn’t like were some big hotels blocking the view to the beautiful beach. You’re not going to have some Robinson Cruso feeling here. There are quite a lot of people here.

Nevertheless we can recommend this place for recreative beach holidays. We’d recommend this especially for couples and families.
