“The must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

If you have a little kids, this may be a perfect beach for you. It is a sand beach, with a broad shallow water area. For families, it is perfect early morning, while through afternoon, it get crowded, noisy and sea water itself looks 'muddy'. However, you may notice that it is not just a kids playing in the ankle-deep water. There is a popular local game called 'picigin'. It is some-what tradition. Rules are pretty simple: small 'tennis-like' size ball, few enthusiastic people to form a large circle and hit the ball with palm towards the air. The goal of the game is to prevent ball of falling in the water, but also hit it in the most jump-wise attractive way. Sounds weird, but it's pretty addictive actually. Locals also have their 'world championship in picigin', yearly. The beach is 5 min walk from main bus/train station, 20min walk from Riva Harbor and palace. Except it is great for 'picigin', locals love it because it is literary downtown. For braves, there are also cliffs for jumps and diving. In the evening, there is a good night life around a beach, and you may see a bunch of people sitting, drinking and hanging out in the dark. Nearby, there are several popular night clubs.

“Mud, Rubbish and local hooligans drinking BYO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

We walked all the way to Bacvice hoping for the well spoken of sandy beach, but instead were greeted with mud for sandy, rubbish in the water, and locals men drinking and leering at any females who walk by.

Go for a look but dont bother even considering risking your health swimming in this beach.

“Loved it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

Busy little area. We loved spending the day there people watching with a beer, getting some sun. Chairs and umbrella very reasonable at £6 for the two of us. Great watching the ferries and cruises coming and going. Probably will return before the end of our holiday.

“Not a swimming beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

This is a great beach for watching the local people. It is very popular with families with small children since it is very shallow. The local folks like to play picigin a game using a tennis ball sized ball in the water, the children seemed to enjoy digging in the dirt and making dirt balls.
