Makarska riviera is not a place if you like relaxing, clear water and having some space on the beach. It certanly has to offer beautiful beaches but then you should not be there during the highest seson. I allways choose islands because of possible variation- quate- noisy. In Baska is noisy everywhere. We liked that there were a nudist beach... More

We have visited about 8 beaches during our two week holiday in Crotia and the beach at Punta Rata, Brela was said to be the best. We had to walk about 1/4 mike before we could find a little space to put down our belongings. There are many other beaches I would go back to first. It is pretty but... More

I've been to this beach many times in my life and always had a good time. It's best to visit in the beginning of the season, for example the middle of June - before the crowds, when the sea is already warm and still very clean. It's a very popular beach and can get very crowded, especially in July and... More

We took a drive outside of Split to see what was titled the "best beach in Croaita." Every picture that we had seen was incredibly beautiful, but when we parked, and headed down to the beach, it felt as if every photo we had seen had been photoshopped. Really disappointed, but perhaps there was another part of the beach that... More

We visited Brela on the middle of May 2014, it was still cold and a bit rainy. Beach was really beautiful, city very small. People weren't so friendly as other cities on the coast.

After the publicity hype of being the best beach in Croatia with Adriatic constantly changing the shapes on this sandy peninsular. We decided to take the walking option from the port to the beach rather than the water taxi option. With temperature at around 30c the walk took an hour rather than the predicted 40 minutes but on arrival the... More

We have been holidaying in Brela since 1985.It is beautiful and clean. During the peak season it can be very crowded. We usually visit in May and September when it is quiet and so relaxing. I am writing this on May 25th on a warm sunny day. We are staying in a beach side apartment on this occasion. We alternate... More

Traveled with the Croatia Only group out of Seattle to a wonderful vacation spot in Croatia. Left in mid May returned early June while the weather was still cool and not lots of tourists to contend with. Our trip included lots of one day trips out of our little pension in Brela to as far south as Dubrovnik and two... More

I'm told that Brela is touted by Forbes Magazine as Europe's best beach. Having visited here twice and having visited the Thailand beaches, I have to agree. Be prepared for gravel, not sand. Even so, these beaches are beautiful, the water clear and clean, and in September, the water is warm and the beaches are not crowded.
