3. Stunning Beaches
With crystal-clear waters and luxuriant forested backdrops, Croatia boasts some of the best, most unspoiled beaches in Europe. Among the better known beaches are the Golden Horn on the island of Brač and the idyllic Punta Rata in the resort and former fishing village of Brela. Although there are few sandy beaches in Croatia, the clear, warm waters and stunning sunsets more than make up for it. The limestone karst mountains and rock formations that flank the coastal areas are spellbinding.
