Very spacious "beach"/plateau. There are a lot of stairs into the water, but do mind the sea urchins! I can't stress this enough! Especially when the sea is a little rough and you can't really see the bottom. The water is very clear though and is really refreshing on a hot day, with enough restaurants and cafes in the area.

Beach with great history. Suitable for families with small kids. This is central beach in Opatija. Has couple cafes and restaurants but are quite expensive. In mid season is very crowded but there is always somewhere to put towel on :) Definitely place to visit and take a swim.

Slatina beach is old and it should be modernized. It is ok if you don't care...but there are so many other beaches which you should explore. For example the beach Lido is now part of the beach resort Bevanda and it looks great, than amazing Kantrida in Rijeka with modern pools complex, Medveja, Moscenicka Draga, Icici,...if you walk "lungo mare"...

The central beach in Opatija has nothing to offer but expensive service and concrete beach. In the high season it is usually crowded with hotel guests. On the upside there are a lot of good restaurants and bars around it. The parking is not easy to find!

It has a sign stating "Best in Croatia", voted for by its citizens. Consider that proclamation to be very doubtful. Has a nice open water swimming pool. That's about it.

Beautiful beach but very crowded. Peak season. No sand, more so big stones. Bring water shoes or flip flops. Lots of fun activities.

Very very very commercial place. There wasn't a lot of people and we Wanted to rent the chairs to sit, but it was impossible cause all were reserved by hotels (the most of them weren't occupied).

NIce beach, but a little bit rocky. But the water was absolutely clean. Good place to spend a holiday weekend.

It is close to the center, just across the gas station and the fountain. I do not like the fact that all beaches in Opatija are concrete, including this one. You enter the water just like a pool- from stairs. Sunbeds are expensive and you also pay 2 kuna for 30 sec of shower, and 2 kuna for toilet. There... More
