Vela Plaza in Baska, Island of Krk

Rating: ★★★½☆

Right within the center of the town of Baska, Vela Plaza is one of the most famous (and hence crowded) beaches in the island of Krk. Water is crystal clear and usually calm, thus providing an ideal setting for everyone, especially families with children. It always gets crowded though, so that you have to show up early in order to secure your spot and also to expect a day surrounded by other people (mainly Italian, German or Croatian tourists) if you decide to stop here. It is mainly a pebble beach with a few spots where sunbathing on the concrete curb and docks is also an option.

Malta Beaches – Ramla Bay in Gozo

Rating: ★★★★½

Ramla Bay (Ir-Ramla il-Ħamra in Maltese) is a sandy beach, located on the north-eastern side of Gozo, one of the three Maltese islands. Its sand features a distinctive golden-reddish tint, from which it’s inherited its name. The beach is very popular with both Maltese residents and tourists, and can be reached by either car or bus. It’s ideal for sunbathing and swimming, but it’s wide enough that some beach sport activities can be performed as well (it’s indeed suitable for families). It’s easy to be accessed (even though you have to expect to walk a little, or rely on pay parking, because of its popularity) and offers a few facilities, such as a bar and restaurant, umbrella and beach chair rental and a few ice cream/cold drink booths. The beach is surrounded by hillsides on both the west and east, where many local farmers have gardens and orchards.
