Croatia is among seven European countries for best beach holiday, said CN Traveller, the online edition of a luxury and lifestyle travel magazine published by the American publishing company Condé Nast on Tuesday.
In the article headlined "The Best Beach Holidays in Europe" CN Traveller said that Europe is blessed with some of the world's most sensational coastlines and that "few tropical paradises can compete with the magnetic culture of Europe's seaside enclaves: the barefoot-chic island attitude, the boho lifestyles, wild and free."
The article recommends seven European countries for best beach vacation -- France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Croatia and Montenegro.
"Yacht-loads of revellers descend on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast every summer in search of all-day-all-night beach parties (specifically on the islands of Pag and Hvar, in case you were wondering). But to uncover the best beaches in Croatia, you might need to go further afield," the article said.
"The ancient coastal cities of Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik have buzzy beaches but are also the gateways to Croatia's secret islands," CN Traveller added.
"Also worth a visit is Vis, Croatia's most distant island, which is just under three hours from Split. Its spectacular Stiniva beach was recently named the best in Europe. Island-hopping in Croatia should include a pilgrimage to Zlatni Rat in Brač - an iconic sliver of sand curling into the Adriatic Sea," the article said.
