BeachRex: Find your Ideal Beach in Croatia

Total Croatia News

A list of over 1.000 Croatian beaches is available on, with 1.500 beaches from France, Spain and Italy coming soon

Probably the largest database of beaches in the world is the project of Gregor Balažic, who toured all of them in person in four years, photographing, filming and logging data on their offer and tourist infrastructure. Gregor left a job in a large company, bought a camper, camera and with a good plan and vision began his trip and discovery of Mediterranean beaches. This resulted in a huge collection of 50.000 photographs, 2.500 videos and 3D sphere shots, and over 500.000 bits of information on the type of beach, infrastructure and objects on each beach.

Croatian beaches have been classified in following areas: Istria, Kvarner, Lika and Dalmatia. Dalmatia is further divided into Zadar, Split, Šibenik and Dubrovnik, with a special section on island beaches (Brač, Čiovo, Cres, Hvar, Korčula, Krk, Lošinj, Murter, Pag, Pašman, Rab, Ugljan, Vir and Vis).

A mobile app is planned to enable beach visitors or tourism workers to include their beach on the webpage. “Every beach is represented with high quality photographs, videos and 3D sphere images, which enable a view of the beach from every angle. Along with this you can view info on parking, beach path, navigation and travel distance from your accommodation to the beach, current beach weather, current sea temperature, weather forecast, web cameras,” said Gregor Balažic.

Beach Rex cites the type of beach (sand, pebble, natural shade etc.), crowding and detailed information on accommodation options, restaurants, sports and animation. Over 200 data bits are available for every beach, while every visitor can add their comment and rate the beach.

The purpose of BeachRex is to enhance the vacation of tourists, so they may choose the appropriate beach first and then accommodation, as they will spend most of the day on the beach, while the project envisions presenting all world beaches in one place.
