“The Golden Horn is the most spectacular of all Croatia’s beaches. It’s not just its shape that makes it so beautiful and unique. The pebble beach is surrounded by crystal clear sea, that goes from turquoise blue to dark blue in just 10-20 meters. Decades-old pine trees provide shade, but you won’t want to get out of the warm waters here,” wrote Big 7 Travel.  

The best beach in the world 2022, according to Big 7 Travel, is Playa Conchal in Costa Rica.
