4.5
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Brela
Praised as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Punta Rata Beach boasts stunning blue water, a pebbled shoreline, and a green forested backdrop. Rent a beach chair and stretch out in the sun, or seek out cooling shade under the pine trees. Alternatively, dive off the beach's large rock into the pristine water, which earned the site a Blue Flag for ecological responsibility. Thrill-seekers will enjoy parasailing, banana boat rides, and beach sports, too. Remember to take water shoes to protect your feet on the rocks.

  • Just a gorgeous place - one side of the beach more windy, second one calm. Beautiful beach and sea as well!
  • Among most famous beaches worldwide
  • Considering overall, this is hands down the best beach in Croatia. Water is crystal clear, there is a lot of life underwater, the small island with the typical tree hanging from the top rock gives a touch of magic. There are a lot of people, be advised, but coming during the early morning lights has its perks.
  • Great beach with big pine trees, hotels, bars and nice long coastline suited for walks or even bike rides. Bars and restaurants are pricey so better look for the ones where locals go to, if you don't want to overpay your food or macchiato. Parking space is expensive, but you can always look for "hidden" parking lots uphill, which are usually 50% cheaper, and only 5min away from the beach. Anyways, avoid visiting in July and August if you don't like overcrowded beaches.
  • Nice beach... no sand like the photos show...
