6 May 2019 – Two Croatian beaches have made the list of the Best Beaches in Europe for 2019.

Pasjača beach in Konavle has been voted the no.1 beach in Europe for 2019 in a vote on travel portal European Best Destinations. 

“The most beautiful beach in Europe is located in the heart of the sublime region of Konavle, 10 min from Cavtat and 30 minutes’ drive from the pearl of the Adriatic, the city of Dubrovnik. Nested at the cliff’s foot, this beach is a real miracle. In 1955, a tunnel was created from the fields upstream (often flooded) to the sea. The remaining rocks were used to build the roads or were left on the seaside. In a few years the waves transformed these rocks into pebbles then into sand. Pasjača beach was born. After a few years the sea took away all the sand and the locals carried new rocks that turned into pebbles and sand again. They will do that again and again to preserve their little paradise. “Pasjača beach”, the most beautiful beach in Europe, is the result of both man and nature’s work,” European Best Destinations writes.

“A wind of freedom is sweeping among travellers this year: they have voted for the beach of Nugal (a partly nudist beach), as one of their favourite beach in Europe. This beautiful beach located on the Makarska Riviera could also be ranked among the best secret beaches in Europe (it will take you more than 30 minutes to walk in the rocks before you get to the place). Be sure to put an eco-friendly and biodegradable sunscreen to preserve this little corner of paradise,” says European Best Destinations.
