Several weeks ago we have teamed up with the guys behind Makarska Riviera Beaches, a great Facebook page promoting beaches of Makarska Riviera. These guys shared with us some of the most beautiful, if somewhat still unknown, beaches in Croatia.
This cooperation brought us also a nice friendship with Vice, a local behind Makarska Riviera Beaches. This guy has just released his smart phone application to help you navigate through the Riviera in a search of a perfect beach. If you are planning to spend sometime anywhere in Dalmatia, this is a must have application for your holidays in Croatia. We are not in anyway compensated for this post. In fact we've purchased the application ourselves, and paid the full price for it.
Why do you need this application?
Simple answer to that question would be: you need it because these are the prettiest beaches in Croatia, and there are just too many of them to ever find them yourself.
Let us explain! Makarska Riviera is an approximately 60 km long. This stretch of coastline hides the best beaches in Croatia. You heard maybe about Brela beach, famed beach on the Riviera, and the most popular beach in Croatia after the Golden Cape beach on the island of Brac. But, this area has over thousand beaches, more than any other place in Croatia. Other top summer destinations in Croatia, like Hvar town, Bol on the island of Brac, or Dubrovnik, don't have more than few dozens of beaches. Just for the fun of comparing, only one out of sixteen villages on Makarska Riviera has over hundred pebble beaches.
There is no better guide to Makarska Riviera Beaches (in fact there is none). Regular price of application is 2.99 $. However, the application is FREE to download until the end of summer 2014 (don't forget that we've paid for it!)! Seriously, you should download it even if only to get inspired to visiting Croatia.
