Vela Plaza in Baska, Island of Krk

Rating: 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 [ ... ]

Croatia Beaches – Jablanova (Island of Krk)

Rating: Jablanova is a nice little pebble beach within walking distance from the FKK Bunculuka naturist camp, so that you usually meet many naturists sunbathing here. Although technically outside the camping site, this beach is so close to it, that it basically constitutes and extension of it. Hence it can get very crowded. Although there are no facilities, you can rely on FKK Bunculuka facilities (a 15 minutes walk) for your needs. Tweet This Post

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 – Ramla Bay in Gozo

Rating: 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 [ ... ]
