Croatia is known as a country that besides clear blue Adriatic sea, offers a number of islands, coves and ridges, which hide beautiful stone, pebble and slightly less sandy beaches. Numerous beaches and bays are still undiscovered, far from civilization and tourists. Even today, most of them are not easily accessible, but after you visit them you will understand why your effort has been paid. Below we show you a number of available beaches that left us without text.
