Life’s a Beach
The peak of the summer season, July and August, are ideal for sunbathing on the beach, taking in the wealth of daily entertainment from nearby bars and neighbouring resorts of Rijeka and Crikvenica. If you can drag yourself away from the sands, you’ll find it worthwhile to discover some of Opatija’s marinas, delving deep into the town’s nautical tourism. ACI Marina Opatija lies between Opatija and Icici and it is open the whole year round. Here, keen sailors can find everything they need but if you’d rather, you can still enjoy watching the sailboats meander across the waters.
