Although our Adriatic coast is more famous for rocky and pebbled beaches, finding a sandy beach in Croatia isn’t that difficult as you may think!

The rough cliffs, tiny pebbles and deepest shade of blue make the Adriatic a wonder to behold, but sometimes you just want to feel warm sand beneath your feet. If that’s the case for you, you’ve probably already seen our list of best sandy beaches in Croatia and maybe even visited the white sand beach Saharun on Dugi Otok. Well, then it’s time to meet other beaches with sand in Croatia — those located on the island of Pag!

Sandy beaches are great for many reasons — they provide a beautiful and relaxing setting for vacations and are perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and playing in the sand. Sandy beaches also tend to have fewer rocks and shells than other types of beaches, making them more comfortable to walk on. If you’re looking for a stunning sandy beach to visit, Pag Island in Croatia is a great option. This Croatian island is home to some of the best sandy beaches in the country.


This sandy-pebbled gem is located near the city of Pag, and it’s pretty easy to find — but beware, once you come, you’ll find it hard to leave! The clear blue Adriatic Sea is as pretty on Pirka as it is on any other spot on the island, but the absence of bars and beachside restaurants make it noticeably calmer than other places on Pag.

This Pag sandy beach feels quiet and relaxing compared to the more crowded beaches on the island of Pag. There are plenty of parking spots and you won’t have trouble finding a spot on the main road just above the beach. Around one hundred meters south there is a stone staircase that will take you down to the beach, as well as offer stunning views and a perfect photo opportunity.
