The Crikvenica Riviera abounds in stunning coves and beaches. Some of them are romantic and located in secluded places, and it's just perfect to discover them and enjoy the peace and quiet!
Others, in contrast, have all the amenities that modern bathers and tourists require, and feature showers and well-tended sunbathing areas.
Some beaches are sandy and some are pebbly, but all of them are clean and tidy with the beautiful Adriatic sea just a step away!
The first public wooded bathing establishment on the coast in Crikvenica was constructed in 1888. Guests liked it, and returned over and over again, which was the beginning of tourism in the town. All that was needed was better organisation. And that's exactly what we've provided!
Our beaches today are very special; the sea leaves nothing to be desired, and nearby there are walking trails and promenades with fragrant Mediterranean plants. It is therefore no wonder that we are described as the riviera with the most beautiful beaches.
What is there apart from beaches?
- Sports and recreational centres
- Interesting services and facilities for children
- Excellent food and drinks
- Entertainment and cultural events for a special
atmosphere on summer nights
Enjoyment for everyone!

Pet owners will be pleased too!
In July 2010, Crikvenica got its first dog beach, located next to the small harbour of Podvorska at the tip of the breakwater. Entrance to the beach is free of charge. The beach features special canopies to protect dogs from the sun. An information board explains the rules of conduct that dog owners are required to observe.
