Pet-Friendly Beaches to Take Your Dog to

Travelling is always more fun in the company of friends – and even more so with man’s best friend! Whether you prefer an active or relaxing vacation, Croatia will prove to be the perfect choice. At the mention of the word “vacation”, most of you have the beach and sea in mind, so why not give your four-legged friend the same treatment! Discover the most beautiful pet-friendly beaches in Croatia where you can enjoy your holiday with your pet and have a vacation to remember!

The queen of all beaches

Podvorska Beach in Crikvenica is certainly the most famous and a must-see dog beach in Croatia. This multiple award-winning beach has the most up-to-date equipment and will definitely elicit a bow-wow(!) from every dog and its owner. The best feature of the beach is actually the first dog café where real dogs gather. Everyone knows how loyal dogs are as a species, and they are just as loyal customers because they are crazy about this innovation – ice cream, chips, and beer for dogs! Even if your dog’s name isn’t Rex, he will certainly feel like one here!

Kvarner offers many more opportunities for a dog paradise. For example, Vela Beach in Baška, famous for its turquoise sea and sand, will make dogs and their owners’ mouth water! Not lagging behind are the beaches Kijac in Njivice, Veli Žal on Mali Lošinj, Punta Kolova between Opatija and Ičići, Vlaška Bay in Senj, and a whole bunch of beaches in Rijeka! Every dog would give a “hound”red points to these beaches!

Besides its gorgeous beaches and sunsets, Istria offers an excellent alternative for an action-filled vacation! Swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, mini golf and many other activities will guarantee that your holidays are anything but dull! You can have the best training and warm-up with your dog at one of many dog beaches in this breathtaking Croatian region, such as Verudela, Saccorgianne, or Štinjanska Bay in Pula, and Lone Bay, Cuvi, Borik-Figarola, or Camp Beach Istria in Rovinj! Who let the dogs out?!

It is known that dogs are the best wingmen and can serve as ideal companions at the beach! Try your luck at different dog beaches in Split such as the northwestern part of Kašjuni and Kaštelet, Zlatni Rat in Bol, or Mlini in Dubrovnik. The atmosphere will certainly be hot on Vartalac in Komiža, because besides being a dog beach, it is also of volcanic origin!
