July 17, 2020 – Find a beach that welcomes you and the family pet with this useful interactive map to Croatia’s Dog Beaches
With domestic travel and tourism being more valued this year than in most, there’s never been a better time for people in the region to hastily pack, throw the kids into the car and set off for the coast. But, what to do about the four-legged member of the family?
Luckily, Croatians are renowned dog lovers, and finding accommodation by the sea that will welcome the family pet isn’t difficult. Man’s best friend can also accompany you to a surprisingly large number of cafes, bars, and taverns, where the dog-loving staff will usually have gifted your pooch a bowl of water even before they’ve brought you your drinks. But, what to do when you go to the beach?
With lots of small children playing care-free by the shore, it’s understandable that not every beach in Croatia welcomes dogs. However, many do. Now, you can find the best-known of Croatia’s Dog Beaches using this useful interactive map.
Want to know where on island Pag you can bring your poodle for the pawfect paddle? Are you and your dog taking a howliday somewhere unfamiliar and not sure where to go? This map holds the answers.
While not wholly definitive (you can take your dog to almost any beach in Croatia unless it has signs saying specifically you cannot), the map has at least 65 designated dog beaches listed. Simply open it to find the one that’s nearest to you.
No more worries about returning to your rented apartment to find it destroyed by the bored German Shepherd you left inside. Of course, it’s possible you may still see a few fat Dalmatians on the coast, resting grumpily in the shade because they can’t join in the fun, but by using this handy dog beach locator, at least now it needn’t be the black and white spotted one that lives with you.
