You want to go on a romantic seaside holiday but you don't find the overcrowded beaches romantic and solitary enough? Find your very own corner of love and happiness on one of many beaches on the Croatian coast that are ideal for couples. We've done our best and among the multitude of gorgeous beaches Croatia has up its sleeve, we've chosen 6 beaches that are best for all of you eager for some seaside romance.
1. Pasjača beach (Popovići, near Dubrovnik)
The first beach on our list of top 6 most romantic beaches in Croatia is located near village Popovići around 30 kilometers from Dubrovnik. Pasjača beach is special because of its isolated position but also because of its origins. Pasjača is a man made beach. During World War II villagers threw stones here and as time passed the sea broke the stones and turned them into fine shingle. You can get to the beach by a stairway that is appended to a steep cliff so make sure you watch your step! There's also a parking lot at the top of the cliff. When you finally climb down you'll find a beautiful shingle beach encircled by a big cliff and clean, unspoilt blue sea. This is an ideal spot for lovebirds. Book your apartment or room in Dubrovnik and set aside a day for a trip to beach Pasjača.
2. Sv. Ivan beach (Lubenice, island Cres)
The next beach on our list is not only for romantics but for the adventurous ones too. The picture perfect pebble beach sv. Ivan under the cliff – town of Lubenice on the western side of island Cres. Getting there is quite a feat – it takes an hour to get there by walking! So don't expect any restaurants or shops there. Also, make sure you don't forget to bring along something to eat and drink. A parasol and a sunscreen are a must too!

3. Vela Luka beach (near Baška, island Krk)
Now we're on our way from Cres to its neighbour – island Krk. Vela Luka beach is just 6 kilometers away from the popular tourist settlement Baška. In 2015 this beach was named by a Croatian travelling magazine the most romantic beach in Croatia. You can get there by an three hour walk through a mountain passage. Those of you not feeling adventurous enough should get there by a taxi boat that sails every day from Baška. Surrounded by a clean sea and majestic hills, this beach is ideal for those who want to hide from the overwhelming crowd and of course, for those eager for some romance. Although secluded, you can find a restaurant there and you can also rent out a parasol and deckchairs.

The next romantic beach on our list is located in Rukavac on island Vis in Central Dalmatia. The Srebrna beach is a pebble beach with stone parts.

6. Betina's cave (Dubrovnik)
We're back in Dubrovnik where we have another secluded romantic beach. Betina's cave is a pebble beach located in a cave between villa Scheherezade and Gjivovići beach. This beach got its name for the scientist Marin Getaldić's pet name Beta. Sail to here with a boat, or if you're brave enough swim your way to this beach. It's a beautiful sight in the afternoon when there's no sun and you can cool from the summer heat. Also, you probably won't be the only lovebirds there. The cave is a nesting place for pidgeons. :)
