But remember it is conrete beach as usually in Croatia. It is located very well in the city center close to bars and restaurants. Nice facilities, not crowded (September).

We were warned that the best beaches are not in Opatija. However, the sea is the sea and this beach was an easy walk from our hotel. It gets very crowded when the weather is warm, so we didn't really feel comfortable staying for too long.

A place of concrete among the other similar places. Hardly anything to do there.Close to Opatija Riviera, it offers very little in terms of option and style. Good for families with young children though.

Slatina beach is a real disgrace! After you pay 100 kuna for a set of sunbeds with a parasol you will still be charged for entrance fee for toilets, which are absolutely disgusting, and every time you want to use a shower you must pay additional 2 kuna for 30 seconds of shower time. I have travelled a lot and... More

This beach is a mockery of tourism. Simply do not meet basic standards. Abbey is not a place that you can rely on the beach but a walk along the sea is invaluable.

Opatija deserves a day trip at the most. The beach is not their high point and it is uninviting. Do not make this area your beach destination. You will be disappointed and you will pay twice as much as you would in the amazing Dalmatian area south of Split.

Absolutely stunning. The whole coast is an absolute wonderment. The services and the appointments that are available are so well thought out. Being from Oregon Washington to see what could be done with our beaches ti make them so much more user freindly! Croatia is incredible!

The "beaches" in Opatija are paved concrete, or rocky. Most people head to the concrete. You can rent reclining beach loungers for a nominal amount, but make sure you leave books, towels, clothes, etc. on them, as people may take empty chairs. Also, if you hit the concrete later in the afternoon, people who are leaving their loungers will gladly... More

There many more beautiful beaches nearby (Tantra, Hotel Savoy beach, Mošćenička Draga etc) where you have beautiful transparent sea and not 50 people in 1m2
