June the 19th, 2023 – As the very height of the summer tourist season now rapidly approaches and with the number of foreign tourists rocking up on these shores increasing, one Novalja beach has decided to lay down some ground rules.
Being very close to the famous (or infamous) Zrce Beach, this Novalja beach says no to multiple things…
Being in the close vicinity to Zrce beach, this Novalja beach has decided to place its rather strict code of conduct up on a board where everyone can easily see and read it. It seems that this particular location wants absolutely zero spill over of the type of behaviour one might encounter on Zrce beach on its shores. We can’t really say we blame them. A potential 150 euro fine awaits those who think the rules don’t apply to them.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, on one Novalja beach, visitors will come across a very visible board with the code of conduct printed on it. The beach is closed from 23:00 to 09:00, and in the meantime, beach visitors must comply with the Decision on Public Order and Peace, or they could be fined.
No rubbish, no loudspeakers, no street sales…
On this Novalja beach, it is currently forbidden to leave any rubbish behind you on the beach, you cannot use loudspeakers, you must be extremely careful with any glass packaging, street sales are totally prohibited, and the use of ampules is also a no go.
A fine awaits those who think they’re above the rules
According to the notice, any violation of the above measures can be punished by a fine of 50 to 150 euros.
It should be noted that Novalja is already full of tourists from both abroad and from other parts of the country. This can largely be attributed to the entertainment programme that began back at the beginning of this month on Zrce Beach. It seems that while the Zrce beach programme has seen the numbers of tourists present in Novalja increase, a clear line must be drawn between Zrce and everywhere else.
