Beaches

Or just relax

There is a reason why the two or three weeks you are going to spend on the Adriatic are called holidays 😉Swimming and sunbathing are still the favourite summer vacation activities for most tourists. Luckily, Omiš offers almost endless possibilities in this aspect as well.

From big sandy beaches to small, secluded pebble coves, from long shallows ideal for kids to the deep big blue opening up before you just meters from the shore – Omiš truly has it all.

Those who prefer sandy beaches offering all kinds of activities and entertainment will definitely choose to visit the town-centre campgrounds or the central town beach known among locals as the Big Beach (Velika plaža), where hundreds of tourists can be found enjoying the sun and the sea on summer days.

In addition to sun and the sea, all beaches in Omiš and other big beaches of the Riviera also offer a wide variety of entertainment and leisure activities such as jet-skis, boat or kayak rental or sea trampolines, and at two locations on the Riviera (campgrounds in the centre of town and the beach in Ruskamen) you can also try the fun and extremely addictive windsurfing.

Those seeking a bit more intimate setting will have no problem choosing among a number of beautiful coves in the villages of the Riviera: Brzet, Nemira, Stanići, Lokva Rogoznica, Medići, Marušići, Pisak... Almost every inch of the Omiš Riviera coast is suitable for swimming and finding the perfect beach is just a pleasant concern for many tourists coming here year after year.

Although most beaches can be reached by car, some of the most beautiful, secluded coves are quite well hidden and are accessible only from the sea. One of them is the famous cove of Vruja – according to many, the top scuba diving location in Croatia and a place under which, as a local legend has it, an ancient sunken city is hidden!

Medići

Medići

In Medići you will find one of the most popular beaches in the area that attracts lots of locals. And who knows the best beaches better than the locals? There is a big parking lot just above the beach in Medići so it is easily accessible by car, although finding a parking space could prove tricky, especially on weekends.

Mimice

Mimice

The most famous beaches in Mimice, equally popular among locals and visitors, are Juto and Kutleša beaches.

Marušići

Marušići

If you are looking to spend the day in a peaceful and quiet environment, you can’t go wrong with visiting Marušići. Although there are plenty of small beaches all around the village, the true hidden gem is the Borak cove. A beautiful sandy beach, pine trees reaching all the way to the sea and a natural spring that was used for centuries by local peasants.

Pisak

Pisak

The most remote coastal village on the Riviera is Pisak and many say you simply can’t get a better taste of truly clean sea than here. There is a small port in Pisak and, if you are lucky, there is a chance you’ll meet local fishermen emptying their nets in the port (maybe even buy some ;))

Vruja

Vruja

Near Pisak there is also the Vruja cove, according to many - one of the best places in Croatia for scuba diving or snorkelling. However, as often the case with truly unique places, Vruja is not easily accessible, so be prepared for some hiking if you are getting there by car. Once again, we would highly recommend visiting Vruja by boat as you will get to explore the entire Omiš Riviera coast on your trip there.
