Croatia's best sandy beaches


The whole island

SusakWho ever dared to say Croatia doesn't have sandy beaches? Not only it has beautiful sandy beaches, but it also has an island completely made of sand. The name of the island is Susak and it is unique in the whole of the Mediterranean. The island is situated in Kvarner Bay, 10 miles southwest of Losinj island.
On a limestone base there is a layer of approximately 100 meters of compact sand. The only settlement on the island is divided into two parts: the older Gornje Selo (Upper village) and the Donje Selo (Lower village). Due to the fact that this island is the farthest from the insular and mainland centers, it has retained many primeval traditions, from speech to customs and folk-costume. The island offers accommodation in private rooms and apartments only, there are just few bars and restaurants, and all together it is a place for a unusual and quiet vacation.
Susak is a small island with only 4 square kilometers of land. Entire island is a large beach. The best way to get to know the island is to walk around it. The track is 11 kilometers long and runs along the shore. Wherever you stop you can have a swim. It takes a little over three hours to tour the island. All you need to take on your walk is something to quench your thirst along the way. Some of the coves are often used by naturists. The most popular clothing optional beach is the one in Bok Bay, east of island's settlement.
