Opatija
New facilities on Slatina Beach

Slatina Beach, located in the centre of the famous seaside resort of Opatija, now offers its visitors new facilities, making the beach more attractive to those seeking more than just sun and the sea, and turning it into a venue for a variety of interesting events for all generations.

Until now, the symbol of Slatina Beach, which was awarded the international Blue Flag for its tidiness and facilities, were colourful deckchairs, sunshades and catering establishments. However, the range of services and facilities offered all day long has now been significantly improved. In addition to a wider choice of drinks and meals, the beach now offers other services for more demanding guests, such as open-air massage. Internet surfers have at their disposal a cyber café and clearly marked hot spots on the beach.
Special attention on Slatina Beach has been given to children – their areas were designed to stimulate creativity and develop environmental awareness. Beach facilities are also suitable for people with disabilities.
The life on Slatina Beach does not end when the last swimmers leave home – this nice beach area in the very heart of the town is the ideal venue for vocal and jazz concerts, but also for romantic dinners in Opatija's most recognisable ambience. For visitors preferring a nice view from a certain distance, we recommend viewing these events from the terraces of Opatija's renowned restaurants. Having all this in mind, we can rightfully assume that daily and evening programmes on the Slatina Beach are Opatija's new attraction.
