Tip: The beautiful Apartment Marino is a great choice for a vacation in Senj. It is located not far from the beach, and you can also reach the old town and other nice beaches in a few minutes walk.
Beach Škver North
Probably one of the most popular beaches in Senj is Beach Skver North. Here you will encounter a fabulous mix of fine pebble beach that slopes relatively shallowly into the turquoise sea and long concrete plateaus that invite you to sunbathe. This beautiful beach is located a bit north of the Skver auto camp, and thanks to its excellent facilities, a wide range of water sports and top cleanliness, it is very popular especially with families with children.
The Plaza Voda Beach is a real insider tip in the south of Senj! To reach the hidden bay, you have to climb numerous stairs. However, the descent is worth it, because already the view of the coast and the turquoise sea is breathtaking. Embedded in stunning scenery, surrounded by high cliffs and with the most beautiful blue sea colors, a dream beach like you know it from travel magazines awaits you. The water is crystal clear and thanks to the intact nature, you can experience an interesting underwater world while snorkeling.
Tip: Near Voda Beach is a small vacation settlement in a quiet location and close to the famous fortress Nehaj. Really nice is the Apartment Waves with bright interior and large parking spaces.
Beach Treća Draga
An insider tip for a romantic beach day is Plaza Treca Draga. This enchanting pebble bay is located at the northern end of the resort and is definitely one of the most amazing beaches in Senj. The panorama with the rugged rocks, the Mediterranean trees and the turquoise sea is particularly impressive and makes this bay something very special. The small, somewhat secluded pebble beach is usually only visited by a few guests, and so even in the high season this beach is really calm.
The idyllic beach Diga is located at the small lighthouse behind the harbor, right next to the large city parking lot, and is mainly visited by people who love the quietness and couples. The picturesque view of the open sea is really beautiful and the vulture island, Prvic, on the opposite side seems close enough to touch. You won’t find any natural shady spots here, but in the high season there are a few umbrellas and sunbeds for rent.
Druga Draga Beach
A real highlight and an absolute dream beach is definitely Plaza Druga Draga. This small idyllic bay is somewhat hidden below the coastal road and is most easily accessible from the restaurant Martina, where you can also find parking spaces. Here you will swim on a pebble beach, where the crystal clear sea and the almost kitschy beautiful water colors will delight you. In addition, this part of the coast is perfect to go snorkeling as you can observe numerous fish underwater!
Tip: The apartments Apartman i sobe Martina score especially with unique location directly on the sea, beautiful rooms and magnificent views!
