Domes Beach – Rincon – Puerto Rico

Rating: A very popular beach among surfers (and boogie-boarders alike) is Domes Beach, which owes its name to the nearby hemispherical facility, very visible from the beach. Once the designated land for this nuclear reactor built in the 1960s by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, it is now a main surfer morning attraction. Due to moderate current, some rocks and sea urchins it is probably not the best place for swimming or snorkeling. If you’re into whatever kind of activity related to good surf though, this one is definitely the beach for you. There are no bathrooms or other facilties [ ... ]

Oprna bay in Stara Baska – Island of Krk

Rating: At about 10 km south of Punat, lies famous Oprna Bay, one of the most prominent and beautiful beaches of the island of Krk. This 120m wide, remote pebbly beach has some of the clearest waters and best unspoiled environments that you might experience, so it’s definitely suggested for a day at the beach. It’s not very easy to reach it, since you have to follow a pretty long and steep downhill trekking path. Once you’re there, some fun and relax are guaranteed though. Immersed into nature you’ll be able to sunbathe, swim, snorkel or even play some beach [ ... ]

Unnamed Bay near Stara Baska (Island of Krk)

Rating: At about 10 km south of Punat, right between famous Oprna Bay and the Škrila camping site in Stara Baska, lies this unnamed pebbly beach, where a good day at the beach (and some good trekking) are both guaranteed. You can sunbathe, swim or snorkel within this unspoiled environment. There are no shops, bars or facilities around, so that you have to make sure you bring everything you need before you get there. If you forget something, you might be lucky enough to find it at the nearby camping site, but it’s still going to cost a good 30 [ ... ]

Harbor Beach in Baska (Island of Krk)

Rating: This small pebble beach lies right next to the harbor in the town of Baska in the island of Krk. It is a good alternative to Vela Plaza and not too far from it either. Water is usually clear and calm, thus making a good candidate setting for swimmers (and sunbathers alike). The proximity with the harbor, although not a busy one, can cause some disturbance on the water on those days when currents are adverse; never too much of a problem though. Just as Vela Plaza, this little beach can also get crowded, so that it’s suggested that [ ... ]

Croatia Beaches – Mali Raj (Island of Krk)

Rating: Mali Raj (little heaven in Croatian) is a secluded tiny bay in the island of Krk. It is so small and intimate that no more than a couple or two can share it. Of course, you have to get there early in the morning in order to take it before someone else does! Yes, it’s THAT small. It’s located near the Bunculuka nudist camping (you can indeed find some naturists here also), and can be reached from there through a step and rough trekking path. Once there, you’ll find yourself immerged into the intimate atmosphere which surrounds this tiny [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Imgiebah Bay

Rating: Imgiebah Bay is a sandy, remote and secluded beach in the north-eastern part of Malta. Water is crystal clear, the environment is usually pristine and very quiet, since very few people usually hang around here. There are no facilities around and the road taking you there is pretty rough (and relatively long), so you might want to prepare yourself before getting into that. Once you get there, you most likely realize it was worth the effort, since you find yourself surrounded by beautiful natural elements, both on the ground and under water; this beach is in fact also good [ ... ]

Malta – Azure Window – Dwejra Bay, Gozo

Rating: Rather than talking about about a bay, it’s probably more appropriate to refer about an area here. Within close distance you have in fact a chance of both enjoying a magnificent natural setting provided by a natural arch and surrounding rocks, forming a natural pool and other interesting formations, as well as sunbathing, swimming or snorkeling in the so-called azure window. Actually the so-called “beach” wouldn’t be nothing spectacular, if not for the natural hole in the rocks forming a cave interconnecting this natural pool with the sea. It’s a quite cool experience to swim/snorkel/dive into it, even if [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Blue Lagoon, Comino

Rating: On the Island of Comino you can find the sheltered inlet known as the “Blue Lagoon”, whose stunning blue waters have transformed it into one of Malta’s premier attractions. It can be reached by boat only, either from Gozo or Malta. It’s suggested to get there early, as the place becomes VERY busy with tourists during the later hours of the day. Tweet This Post

Malta Beaches – Ghajn Tuffieha Bay

Rating: Ghajn Tuffieha is Golden Bay’s sister beach. It’s in fact also located in the north-western part of the island, just a couple hundred meters away from it. It’s easy to be reached, but not so to be accessed, since there’s quite a lot of climb down to do (over 100 steps). It’s popular among couples and young people, local and tourists alike. Please note that, although such practice is technically illegal in Malta, there might be nude sunbathers sometimes. It’s usually not as crowded as its sister, but nevertheless it also offers certain facilities (cafe, restaurant). A cold drink [ ... ]

Rating: Paradise Bay’s a Sandy beach located in Cirkewwa, on the northern part of the island of Malta.

Umbrellas and beach chairs can also be rented thereby.  Not far from it there’s also a Hotel, where a Diving School is also located. It’s a quite popular beach for locals, but it’s also populated by tourists. It’s a very good beach to visit, [ ... ]
