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!
