Croatia – Bunculuka Bay (Baska, Island of Krk)

Rating: ★★★½☆

BanculukaBanculuka Bay is a sandy/pebble beach within the premises of the FKK Banculuka naturist Camp, in the island of Krk (near the town of Baska). The beach is pretty wide, offering lot of locations where to sunbathe. Although it’s rare to find yourself suffocating in a dense crowd, you still have to be prepared that you’ll definitely share this beach with other people – to get you an idea about numbers, the camping alone can accomodate more than 1000 guests. Most of these people will be naturist and hence they’ll be naked. Just be prepared for this. Water is crystal clear and facilities of all sorts are present (restaurant, bar, mini markt, bakery, grocery, fast food kiosk, etc). There are also some sporting facilities (tennis, miniature golf, volleyball) .

Croatia Beaches – Storišće (Island of Krk)

Rating: ★★★½☆

Storišće BeachStorišće is a nice little pebble beach in the island of Krk. It’s located not too far from the FKK Banculuka naturist camp and can be reached either from there or by boat. If you decide to get there from ground, be prepared to walk (for quite a lot and following a winding, offroad path), since there’s no way to access it by car. There are also no facilities within its premises, so you have to make sure you bring everything you need (especially drinks, since the road to get there is pretty rough and long, especially under striking sun). Once there you’ll experience some crystal water and the company of few other tourists, most of which came there by boat.

Malta Beaches – White Tower Bay (Little Armier)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

white Tower Bay, also called Little Armier is a white sand beach located on the north eastern part of the island of Malta. It is overlooked by the White Tower from which it inherits its name. Water is clean and crystal clear and the beach itself is quite pretty, definitely secluded. It’d be a great place to spend the day if not for the algae, the motor boats and the rubbish lying around. It’s still a good place to choose when you want to escape from crowds, but you definitely have better alternatives, so our suggestion is to keep it as an alternative when you’ve already explored the best beaches. Nevertheless it’s very easy to reach it, whereas other secluded beaches have much more difficult paths taking you there. So you could pick it as your destination if you don’t feel like you want to wast time searching for a place or you need easy access to the sea.

Malta Beaches – Mistra Bay

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Mistra Bay is a pebble beach located between Xemxija Bay and Selmun. It is more common among locals rather than tourists, to the point that many tourist maps do not even mention it. It’s not large and is usually overtaken by Maltese, so that you have to show up early if you really want to spend the day there. There are a few facilities in the area, such as a restaurant and a bistro just across the road from the bay. It might be good choice if you wish to experience a “Maltese day at the beach”, but my personal opinion is that there are far better choices in Malta. If you decide to visit it, it might be worth following the coastline to get to the next bay also; it could definitely provide you a good chance to take a cool picture of pristine crystal clear water (as seen in the map below).
