Certainly one of the most famous dog friendly beaches in Croatia is the Podvorska beach in Crikvenica. This multi-award-winning beach has the most modern equipment and is sure to make every owner and their dog go “woof”. What makes this beach truly special, however, is the first café for dogs. We all know how loyal dogs are, which makes them loyal customers. We promise they’ll love this innovation – an offer of ice cream, chips and beer for dogs! Even if your dog’s name isn’t Rex, they’ll definitely feel like it there!


Kvarner offers many other little corners which are simply dog paradise. For example, Vela plaža in Baška, which is known for its turquoise sea and sand, will make both humans and dogs drool. The Kijac beach in Njivice, Veli Žal on Mali Lošinj, Punta Kolovi between Opatija and Ičići, Vlaška bay in Senj, and a number of small beaches in Rijeka are not far behind. Any dog would rate these beaches with a HUNDred points!


In addition to the sun and the sea, Istria also offers a great option for an action-packed holiday. Swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, minigolf and many other activities will ensure that your holiday is anything but boring. You can have the best training sessions with your four-legged gym buddy on one of the many dog friendly beaches in this beautiful area of Croatia, such as Verudela, Saccorgianna or Štinjanska uvala in Pula, Lone bay, Cuvi or Borik-Figarola in Rovinj, or camp beach Istria in Rovinj.

Dogs are our best friends, and even on the beaches they are just perfect company! In Dalmatia, try the numerous dog friendly beaches around Split, such as, for example, the northwestern part of Kašjun or Kaštelet. You can also head down to Zlatni Rat in Bol, or Mlin in Dubrovnik. At Vartalac in Komiža, the atmosphere is just fiery because, in addition to being a dog beach, this one is of volcanic origin!
