Brela Is The Secret European Beach Retreat You've Been Dreaming About

Posted: Updated:

Warning: This beach will make you want to hop on a plane to Croatia ASAP.

The search for the perfect beach is never-ending, from a white sand paradise in Australia to an epic strip of sand in Greece, yet somehow each find is better than the last.

Brela is another one of those insanely gorgeous, impossibly perfect places.

The tiny seaside retreat on Croatia's Makarska Riviera is known for its stunning shoreline and more than three and a half miles of pristine sandy beaches. Small Dalmatian villages sit along the coast, welcoming beachgoers into their restaurants and shops.

Visitors who explore the star of Brela will find coves tucked along the coastline, clear blue water and eye-catching rock formations.
