Welcome to Rijeka
Find refreshment on Rijeka’s beaches!
When warmer, sunnier days arrive, thoughts simply wander towards beaches. Rijeka has plenty of them and thanks to the moderate climate, the bathing season lasts from spring to late autumn. Where to go? Go wherever you like, from the west to the east or vice versa. Rijeka can offer ideal places under the sun for everyone.
The Ploče beach is the most recent and the most organized beach in Rijeka.
It is situated below the swimming pools on Kantrida and it has become a new high quality summer meeting place that is busy during the day and night offering various activities combined with cleanliness and safety. The Kostanj beach is the first beach in Croatia that is entirely adapted to the disabled. It is equipped with a lift to help swimmers into the sea and it is situated in the western part of the city between Bivija and the Preluk bay.
When speaking of Preluk, let us start at the beginning. Preluk is a surfer’s paradise. Perfect winds throughout the year offer early morning surfing fun and joy. Alongside shingle and concrete beaches, there is a camping site with its own beach and for those wanting solitude, there are rocks all the way to the coastal road connecting Preluk with Bivija. Skalete, Lungomare, Kostanj, Akademija, the “S” curve… all are names of bathing locations in this area. All the way to Kantrida, where, besides the already mentioned beauty of Ploče, you will find the Brgudi, Igralište, Vila Nora and Razbojna beaches.
Heading east, there are beaches on Pećine that were the bathing and swimming destination of the Mediterranean in the 19th century together with the Riviera in Crikvenica and Opatija. These are: Križić, Sablićevo and Vila Olga, then Glavanovo, Srebrena, Ružićevo and Grčevo.
All these beaches can be reached by city buses, and there are parking areas for cars. The beaches for dogs, on Kantrida and Brajdica, offer unlimited bathing for your fluffy pets. What else is there to say than: see for yourself! Each day during your stay in Rijeka, you can visit a different beach and experience something new. Enjoy!
