The charming Plaza Punta is a real beach highlight in Pakostane! Located close to the campsite Kozarica and the center of Pakostane, it is a wonderful mix of pebble and stone beaches, with plenty of cozy places to sunbathe and relax. The sea on this part of the coast is wonderfully clear, turquoise blue and even invites you to snorkel. Fantastic are also the green pine trees a little behind the beach, which provide the necessary shade, especially on hot summer days.
Uniquely beautiful and a real highlight is the Porat Beach, which is located in the south of Pakostane in the neighboring village Drage-Pakostane.
