There are only a few places on the Adriatic surrounded by as many beautiful natural beaches as Novalja. Whether you go north or south, you’ll soon reach one of these magnificent beaches, which will provide perfect comfort and relaxation.
The beaches are wide, sand and shingle, with clear water and excellent access to the sea, which in turn makes them particularly suitable for families with children. They are located 1-3 km from Novalja, forming a ring around it. All the beaches can be reached by car and have parking areas.
The Straško Beach and Camp is located south of the centre in a wide bay area. It is about 1.5 km long and after a short rocky beach area that leads into the sea, one reaches a sandy bottom. One of the largest and most beautiful camps on the Adriatic is located along this beach, with its clothed and naturist areas, restaurants, entertainment and sports facilities, various workshops, playgrounds, etc. The entire area is covered by a pine and oak forest, which gives it a special charm. Since the summer of 2004 the beach has had a blue flag.
The beach is located north of Novalja, along the southeast coast of the Novalja Bay. It is covered with fine sand, it is warm, shallow and well-kept. It has restaurants and various recreational facilities. Due to its excellent maintenance and facilities, the beach has had a blue flag since the summer of 2004. In one of the events thrown by the Croatian Tourist Board and the Blue Flower Media, the beach won two awards – for best kept and most beautiful beach on the Adriatic coast. This beach is great for families with children.
This is the Novalja town beach, located along the southern edge of the Novalja Bay. It’s pebbly, shallow and warm, with a large green belt, which makes it pleasant for vacationing and cooling off during the hot summer days.
This is located east of Novalja, on the site of the former Roman city which, according to legend, was destroyed by an earthquake in the 4th century and whose remains can still be found in close proximity to the beach and the sea bottom. Access to the sea is mostly sandy. The sea bed is very steep, which makes the beach deep. There are restaurants and recreational facilities on the beach.
This beach lies in a shallow cove west of Novalja. This is the shallowest and warmest of all Novalja beaches, with fine sand and a narrow coastal strip. In recent years the beach has been enriched by restaurants and recreational facilities.
