It is recommended to bring along bathing shoes or to buy some in a local shop.
Most beaches in Croatia are leveled, but the seafloor is usually covered with larger pebbles and stones.
In addition, sea urchins romp about near the beach, and if you go into the water without bathing shoes, you must absolutely take care not to step on them.
Otherwise this might be a very painful experience.
Please don't forget to use
If you prefer to sleep with the window
Please don't forget to use sunscreen, at least with factor 10-15.
If you prefer to sleep with the window open (which will probably be the case in summer), bring enough autan spray or cream for the whole family.
We can assure you that the midges don't like the stuff and you will enjoy your breakfast without itching.
