Adriatic Sea

Why the Adriatic Sea? Because you never, till now, enjoyed the most beautiful sea in the whole wide world. Let me tell you something about this pearl in the earth.

The big blue of the small Adriatic sea is 783 km long, and if one includes the islands then the coastline is 7868 km, from which the croatian part is 74% or 5835 km and truly epitomises the best qualities of the Mediterranean. If you want the precise figures: the clarity and transparency of the open sea reaches depths of 56 m, whilst at Palagruza it reaches up to 250m and around the most distant island of Jabuka it reaches 1300 m in depth. The average temperature of the sea surface in teh summer months is between 22-27 C, whistl it is at its lowest in winter at around 7 C and in the spring it is comfortable 18 degrees.

Croatia offers absolutely all types of beach. There are family beaches with gentle coves that are made from pebbles or gentle rocks, which can be found almost everywhere on the Adriatic coast, tidy town beaches and modern beaches for walking and having fun such as the crazy beach of Zrće on Pag, naturist beaches such as  Koversada and Valalta in Istria, Punat and Baška on Krk or Lokrum beach near Dubrovnik, there are those that are deserted and difficult to get to on the islands, as well as pretty sandy beaches such as those on the island of Susak, the so called Saharun on Dugi Otok, Lumbarda on Korčula, and Orebić and Kukljica on the island of Ugljan. A large number of beaches in Croatia are crowned with a fluttering blue ecological flag ,where asides from having a sea and coastline that is totally clean, they also offer complete safety as well as numerous accompanying facilities.
