Not far from the beach is the beautiful Valamar Sanfior Hotel & Casa, a perfect hotel for a beach vacation in Rabac!
One of the largest beaches in Rabac is Plaza Maslinica, which is located west of the town center. This nearly 500-meter long pebble beach has been awarded the Blue Flag thanks to its fantastic facilities, cleanliness and top sea quality. A wide range of activities make this beach very popular, especially with families with children. Among other things, there is a sailing school, pedal boat rental, slides, bouncy castle and opportunities to play tennis, table tennis and mini golf. Moreover, you are only a few steps away from cafes, restaurants, snack bars and stores. Natural shade is almost nonexistent on Maslinica Beach, but there are umbrellas and sunbeds for rent.
Directly behind the beach is Olivia campsite as well as 3 large middle class hotels: The Hotel Narcis, Hotel Hedera and the Hotel Mimosa; together they form a large hotel complex with several pools and restaurants.
Sveti Andrea Beach
The Plaza Sveti Andrea is definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in Rabac. A breathtaking setting awaits you here, as unique and kitschy as travel magazine pictures. Turquoise sea colors, crystal clear water, picturesque rock formations and an idyll that is second to none. While bathing, one enjoys a particularly clean stretch of beach, which is divided into many small snow-white pebble coves. Especially in the low season, when you will have one of the bays to yourself, Plaza Sveti Andrea is a real dream beach!
Behind that beach runs a waterfront promenade that leads to the center and is lined with several cafes, beach clubs and restaurants. Also countless apartments, like the beautiful Park Hill Residences, are located not far away!
Another fantastic place to absorb sun and go swimming can be found at Lanterna Beach in Rabac. This is a mix of rocky beach with small pebble bays and is also partly equipped with concrete sunbathing areas. Especially beautiful are the almost surreal turquoise blue colors, which rather remind you of the Caribbean than Croatia. The view over the beautiful coast of Rabac is also breathtaking and invites to linger. There is no natural shade directly on the beach. However, areas with umbrellas are provided for a fee.
The best way to reach this beach is to take a walk along the promenade. Just a few steps behind it is the beautiful Valamar Sanfior Hotel & Casa, which delights its guests with its perfect beach location.
Girandella beach is another highlight in Rabac, which guarantees bathing pleasure at its best. There are several small sheltered pebble bays, which are ideal for families with children. The sea is crystal clear, clean and slopes quite gently. The paradisiacal blue colors of the water are also beautiful and create a breathtaking ambience. Just behind is the lovely Sundance Beach Club, where guests can enjoy delicious cocktails and drinks in a wonderful setting.
Girandella Beach is located below under the same named Girandella Hotel, which with its pool and top location is an excellent choice for a beach vacation in Rabac.
Bellevue Family Beach
Really popular with families is Bellevue Family Beach, a lovely spot where there are several beautiful pebble bays. The sea here slopes gently and is therefore suitable to swim in, even for the youngest. In addition, the sea quality and cleanliness are excellent, while the intact underwater world also invites to snorkel. Although this beach belongs to Hotel Bellevue, non-hotel guests can also swim here, as on the other beaches of Rabac.
Tip: Nearby is the dog beach of Rabac and a little further there is also a nudist section.
A real insider tip among the hidden beaches in Rabac is Plaza Prizinja, sometimes also known as Four Elements Beach. Here you can expect absolute idyll in the middle of intact nature. The calm bay is surrounded by dense pine forests and the cliffs create an exceptionally beautiful landscape. The sea here is extremely clear and thanks to the many stones you can discover countless fish and crabs while snorkeling.
This dream beach can be reached either by an unpaved gravel road or by a short hike along the coast. But many also come here by SUP or Kayak.
