I had often heard about the beautiful beaches in Croatia. Before going, I pictured long white sand beaches. However, when arriving I saw that they were full of rocks and pebbles. Many tourists complain.
This does not mean the Croatian beaches are not beautiful. Because they still are.
Nevertheless, many tourists complain about the lack of sandy beaches in the country. Croatia is rocky, so the beaches are rocky as well. There are just a few sandy beaches to be found.
I can understand the tourists complain. Before arrival, we had heard so much about the beautiful beaches from our Croatian friend, that was our guide. When we arrived to the first famous beach, we laugh and said, “You call this a beach?!?” Because the beach was just rocks. It was far from what we imagined.
The same occurred while visiting other beaches in Croatia.
Though the beaches were not as imagined, we still enjoyed our time there. I actually found to prefer these beaches as they were very peaceful, with few people. So despite that many tourists complain, I still would recommend Croatia and its rocky beaches.
What do you think about the beaches of Croatia?
