A completely remote beach in Croatia, on the island of Vis, has been named the best beach in Europe by tourism organisation European Best Destinations.
You can almost miss this amazing beach when passing it by boat; it’s nicely tucked away in a little cove, but the secret is out as it takes home the honour of being called Europe’s Best Beach for 2016 by Brussels-based tourism organisation European Best Destinations. The organisation polled more than 10,000 holidaymakers and this hard-to-reach spot came out on top.
It’s remoteness is definitely part of its attraction. Vis is the farthest inhabited island from Croatian mainland, past Brac and Hvar. To reach the beach, you need to hike down a steep and narrow path, or by taxi boat from Rukavac and then, only boats small enough can pass the gap in the cliffs that’s only a few metres wide.
If you book flights to Croatia for early or late in the season, it’s possible you’ll even have the whole beach to yourself!
