The beach Rokan is the beautiful main beach of Selce and especially popular with families with children. Really impressive on this stretch of coast is the snow-white velvety sandy beach, which together with the almost kitschy turquoise sea colors conjures up Caribbean atmosphere at its best. Just behind it are numerous bars, cafés and restaurants that provide for the physical well-being on a perfect beach day. In addition, the wide range of entertainment options such as water sports and an aqua park are guaranteed to keep you entertained. Very popular in high summer, you should be at the beach early enough to get sunbeds.
Tip: Just across the street, in the best beach location, are the beautiful apartments of Apartmani Plaza.
The Beach Polaca is located in the center of the resort and has always been one of the most popular beaches in Selce. Here you will swim on a really beautifully designed concrete beach, whose wide plateaus are ideal for sunbathing. There are steps leading into the deep blue sea, which even older people will appreciate. The popular promenade right behind the beach is also very pretty, with souvenir stands and some cozy cafés and bars. At the lower part of the promenade, sunshades and sunbeds are available for rent.
Tip: The Apartmani Maya offers two apartments in a quiet location with a beautiful view of the sea and is very close to the beach and the center!
The Beach Karlovac is a real insider tip of the most beautiful beaches in Selce. This picturesque pebble bay is located in the north of the resort and inspires with a backdrop like from a travel magazine. Especially impressive are the turquoise sea colors, which together with the rock formations form an enchanting panorama. The bathing bay of Karlovac beach is located under a vacation settlement and is usually visited only by its guests. This is probably one of the reasons why this bay is never overcrowded, even in the high season.
Fabulous is also the small bar behind the beach, where you can get delicious coffee and cool drinks at a reasonable price.
Tip: The Apartmani Heta Alagic is a real insider tip. Not only the location directly on the waterfront is great, but also the tasteful furnishings and the picturesque sea view!
Maslina Beach is a quaint romantic concrete beach that exudes Croatia charm of yesteryear. Mostly the older generation swims here, but couples and those seeking peace and quiet also like to come here. Since the number of shady spots is limited, you can rent umbrellas and sunbeds for a fee during the summer months. The bar directly on the beach is also really popular, where you can enjoy delicious snacks and cool drinks while enjoying the wonderful sunsets.
In addition, a water sports center with banana boat, parasailing and more provides action, and also a very popular diving school has settled directly on the beach Maslina.
Poli Mora Beach
The Plaza Poli Mora borders directly on the main beach and is one of the most popular swimming spots in Selce. At least as beautiful as the bay Rokan, you will experience there a golden sandy beach, which provides easy access to the shallow sloping sea. The water is extremely clear at this section and you can spot many fish while splashing. In addition, Poli Mora beach is very family-friendly. Among other things, the large playground for children, the water bouncy castle, mini golf course and the large water slide are great. There are also several restaurants and beach bars near the beach.
Tip: The Apartmani Plaza is located just a few steps away from Poli Mora beach. Guests love the great location, but also the super facilities and the sea view.
A really idyllic, quiet part of the coast is located north of the center, and is called by connoisseurs simply Beach Selce. It is located far from the hustle and bustle, along the quiet promenade, and it delights with unique scenery, but also, above all, with a lot of flair. The light-colored pebbles are beautiful here, granting gentle access to the turquoise sea and, together with the Mediterranean trees, conjuring up a romantic panorama.
Tip: Really ingenious and just 10 meters from the beach is the Apartment Adria with a beautiful balcony and free parking.
At the southern end of Selce, close to the campsite, lies Plaza Slana, an idyllic swimming beach that is popular with both locals and tourists. Thanks to its location, you can enjoy a certain seclusion from the hustle and bustle, and even in the high season, everyone is sure to find a quiet place to swim there. The mixture of pebble beach and concrete plateaus, which invite to sunbathing and splashing, is also beautiful. The sea is wonderfully clear on this stretch of coast and is also ideal for snorkeling.
Tip: A little further along the way, a small path leads to several beautiful natural coves and nudist beaches.
