The Guardian has compiled a list of the 40 best beaches for 2022, and three Croatian beaches make the top forty, including one in the Dubrovnik region.
With sea temperatures around 26 degrees and the turquoise glint of the Adriatic once again proving a magnet for tourists the popular UK newspaper has placed three Croatian beaches in their latest research.
And one of the beaches is in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Divna beach on the Pelješac peninsular.
"Divna beach is located on the northern coast of the Pelješac peninsula. The small pebble bay is surrounded by pine-covered hills. There are several shady spots, and the undersea between the beach and the islet is great for snorkelling," writes the Guardian about this popular beach.
The other two Croatian beaches in the top forty list were Mlini bay, which is part of Pakleni islands, and the Lošinj beach of Krivica bay.
