“Lovely beach but be careful of inflatable playground!”
Review of Copacabana Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Copacabana beach is a lovely smallish pebble beach with stunning scenery and clear blue water. There is a small beach bar and a stand alone restaurant. Bring your own water though as its expensive to buy at the bar. The facilities for tourists consist of canoes for hire, pedal boats, jet skis, sunbeds and umbrellas. However my issue is with the inflatable playground in the water. This is a great idea and reasonably priced however there doesn't seem to be an upper or lower age limit so small kids and adults can be on at the same time making big differences to the weight and bounce of the stand alone inflatables of which there are 3. My daughter was on the rock climbing wall when she dropped off and plopped into the water which was fine until a large male adult did the same causing the wall to float over my daughters head. As she is only nine and quite slight she ran into difficulties and it was only the quick reaction of her brother that got her out from underneath. He had tried to attract the attention of the 'lifeguard' but to no avail. Croatia is a beautiful country which doesn't cripple itself with ridiculous 'elf and safety nonsense, it's got more of a ' just look where you are going' vibe but this was a frightening experience for us all and one which need not be repeated if there was an age minimum and maximum set on the playground.

Oh to see the sights of Copacabana Beach! The beach is quite safe for small kids, and for their bigger bretheren there is a fantastic variety of water-borne attractions. The restaurant is good, but beware that parking is very limited.

This beach was a short 10 minute walk from Villa Antea. It offered chaise lounges & umbrellas for rent. There was also a coffee bar to get our morning cappuccino or a beer/wine. You can also rent kayaks, paddle boats or jet skis. The beach is not sandy but has small pebbles so it helps if you wear water shoes.

We were staying in the Old Town so we got on the number 6 bus and went exploring. We headed for Copacabana Beach and had a great few hours sunbathing and swimming. I'm not usually keen on going in the sea but it was so clean, clear and inviting that I couldn't resist. There is a snack bar that used to be an old chapel and we had lunch there. The food was nice, it was good value but there wasn't a great deal of choice. We also hired sunbeds which were 30 kuna (£2.50 ish). All the beaches are shingle so they are not really comfy enough to just put your towel down. We had a great few hours just relaxing on this quiet beach before going back to the Old Town.
