ZAGREB, Aug 7 (Hina) – The prestigious US Conde Nast Traveler magazine has included the Nugal beach on the Makarska riviera and Zlatni Rat beach in Bol on the island of Brac among the top 25 best beaches in Europe, the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) said on Friday.
Conde Nast Traveler highlights the beauty of Nugal beach with its spectacular view and crystal clean sea, adding that a 40-minute walk to the beach was well worthwhile.
The magazine notes the advantages of Zlatni Rat, saying that it stands out because of its shape and that it is ideal for water sport enthusiasts, notably sailing or board sailing.
HTZ Director Kristjan Stanicic underlined that the latest report by this prestigious American magazine is confirmation that Croatia has retained its visibility and positive image on the US market.
“Despite the current situation, because of which we are not expecting a large number of American guests, it is important to continue maintaining their interest and the perception of our country as a safe and attractive tourist destination,” underlined Stanicic.
