10 Best Beach Towns in Croatia for Your Bucket Lists 

With over 1,100 miles of gorgeous Adriatic coastline speckled with more than 1,200 islands, Croatia is a mosaic of charming coastal towns and cities, each with its own allure.

Whether you want to hike to secret beaches, feast on fabulously fresh fish, sip on seriously delicious wines or swim in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic.

In our list of the 10 best Croatian coastal town and cities, we cover the must-see highlights in each destination and the best places to stay.


Nicknamed the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful walled cities in southern Croatia. As well as being a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Game of Thrones filming location.



Hvar Town

Hvar Town is one of the most beautiful towns in Croatia. And the most glam – it’s frequented by luxury yachties and celebrities. Its nightlife is legendary.



In terms of accessibility, Split is one of the best coastal towns in Croatia, as it’s easy to reach via its international airport. (We flew out of Split, connecting in Germany, to return home on one Croatia trip.)


Bol (on Brac)

Shaded by pine trees, it’s lined by a string of other small pebble beaches with beach bars and cafés. There are also several interesting stone sculptures along the walkway.
