This is a great little relaxing beach to swim at. Deck chairs with umbrellas 90 kuna. It's pebbles so invest in some Crocs, Havianas were a bit of a pain. We stayed at the Excelsior, this beach is about a 1.5 km easy walk heading away from old town from the hotel. Then down some steps behind the church. Nice little cafe to enjoy a light lunch, beer or lemonade at as well. Enjoy.

I mean it! It took us 1/2 hour to walk there in the baking heat only to find a very cramped tiny beach. The staff on the beach weren't interested in serving us, they wanted to keep their spare sun loungers for the cruise brigade. There's not really much in the way of sand there. It's quite rocky and you really need to take footware you can wear in the sea to avoid getting your feet cut or burnt. There were also a lot of smokers on the beach who think its acceptable to leave their butts on the beach. If sitting in an ashtray's your thing, you'll love it! I was less than impressed. Having said that, banje beach, just outside the city walls is even worse.

Very lovely pebble beach with great view. I went to this beach twice in consecutive 2 days, I think this beach is good for people who want quiet atmosphere, away from crowd.

This is a nice, quiet beach not far away from the old town, but you feel like it is miles away. Not many people go there, they prefer Banje Beach. It is perfect for those who avoid crowds.
