Holiday in Rabac is a really stressful experience. To be more precise, every day you will be tormented by the same terrible dilemma: which sensational Rabac beach will you choose today?

Before booking an accommodation for your well-deserved holiday, keep this in mind: a holiday in Rabac can be a stressful experience. A very stressful experience. Unbearably stressful. To be more precise, every day you will be tormented by the same terrible dilemma: which sensational Rabac beach will you choose today? Gravel, sand, pebbles, big rocks or rocky plateau? Child-friendly, dog-friendly or #adultsonly? Peacefulness of the endless horizon of the open sea or voyeuristic glamour with the view of Cres and Kvarner Islands? A beach in a romantic seclusion or a wild beach party? With miles and miles of perfectly maintained beaches with their crystal clear sea, guaranteed by the prestigious Blue Flags that flutter proudly in almost every cove, this dazzling gem on the coast of south-eastern Istria is a true Sophie’s choice for lovers of sea activities, but we’re here to make things easier for you… Or are we making them even more difficult with some new beach suggestion that you haven’t heard of before and now you’ll just have to go visit? Stress, we told you so. It’s not easy being you!


It may be best to start with a beach that has absolutely everything. This rocky pebble beach is packed with amenities for all age groups, whether you are a fan of sports and fun or you simply want to relax in a cove with enough space just for you and the person you love. In addition to Blue Flag, Girandella’s gorgeous coves boast the Val brand, reserved only for the Valamar beaches with the highest standard of equipment and service.

St. Andrea

The St. Andrea beach is situated below the Church of St. Andrew and Rabac’s main promenade, only 70 m away from the Allegro Sunny Hotel & Residence by Valamar. Because of its shallow sea access area, it is ideal for families with children, and you can choose whether you want to sunbathe on the sand or stretch your towel on the nearby rocky plateau. Of course, you can escape to the thick shade of fragrant pine trees at any time. Big, small, but also fully grown-up kids will be delighted by the wide variety of water sports. You can quench your hunger and thirst at the nearby restaurants, and even buy fresh fruits and vegetables at the local stands, so you can plan your entire day on this beach without the fear that your family members will be bored, not even for a moment.


The beautiful Lanterna beach spreads out just a few steps away from the Valamar Sanfior Hotel lies. It’s a favourite beach among families with young children because of the gentle sea access and shallow water that lures in to play and have fun. Deck chairs and parasols can be found on the paved area above the beach, and in its immediate vicinity there is a water sports centre where adults can enjoy the adrenaline rush while their children hang out and enjoy the inflatable Wibit water park. Frequently held various eco workshops are a special feature of this beach. Here, your kids can learn how to appreciate the environment that surrounds them and to live in harmony with nature. All of that, of course, with an unforgettable view of the island of Cres!
