Croatia took advantage of its natural predispositions and became a paradise for everyone who loves places like this.

In addition, we have found places where you can drink good cocktails, eat delicious food, and enjoy music.
What do you choose - a beach club or a beach bar?
A beach club is any ocean or seaside hospitality business that provides guests with the opportunity to dine, relax or celebrate either on the beach or around a pool located at the beach.
A beach bar is a place that sells drinks and food on or by a beach.
We see that it is actually very difficult to draw a line between these two concepts. The difference is that, whether it's day or night, the beach bar turns into some kind of beach club in the evening.
We have chosen for you the 10 best beach bars and clubs that you must visit.
