From ultra-popular to wild shores and everything in between, travel writers from the popular newspaper The Guardian have selected the most beautiful European beaches, and among the top 40 there were three from Croatia. But this time the choice was not so predictable, so among them were not the eternal trump cards of our coast such as the Pasjača beach in Konavle.
Among the three most beautiful Croatian beaches in the Guardian's choice were Krivica on Lošinj, Divna on Pelješac and Mlini on the Pakleni islands near Hvar.
Maybe just the fact that you have to walk 30 minutes on a rocky path to actually reach Krivica beach, makes this pebble beach so special. But the prize is a clear, deep sea of beautiful turquoise. It is located in a protected bay surrounded by pine trees, and its only company is anchored sailboats, writes The Guardian, which describes Lošinj as a long island of unusual shape, located in the Kvarner Bay and one of the most fragrant Croatian places with an incredible abundance of wild plants.
Divna Beach on Pelješac really lives up to its name. This pebble and sandy beach is located on the northern coast of Peljesac, about 10 km from Trpanj. Although there are not many places to enjoy the shade, Divna attracts swimmers with its crystal clear sea, and the sea life between the beach and a small island facing the bay will delight everyone who loves diving. The beach cafe sells drinks and basic food, and behind the beach there is a small camp.

Those who visit Hvar and want to change the landscape should take a taxi boat to the bay of Mlini on the Pakleni island of Marinkovac, advises The Guardian. This pebble beach with an irresistible scent of pine trees, conquers the incredibly clear blue-green sea, and offers a restaurant and deck chairs for all who want a little comfort.
