Rijeka
The city's most beautiful beach now ready for swimmers

Immediately after opening, the beach below the Kantrida Swimming Pool Complex was declared Rijeka's most beautiful beach, highlighting another attractive side of this most interesting town.

The city of Rijeka has recently got its most beautiful beach, located right below the Kantrida Swimming Pool Complex. This 18.2-million-euro investment resulted in a facility that provides excellent opportunities for relaxation and swimming in the sea.
The pebble beach is 350 metres long and covers a total area of ca. 7,000 square metres. The facility also includes a 300-metre-long walking path, a beach volley court, a lift and ramp for people with disabilities, and plenty of Mediterranean vegetation. It is equipped with lighting, benches, trash bins, fences and stairways, and an irrigation system for the plants. In addition to outdoor showers, visitors will have at their disposal 13 toilets, including those suitable for people with disabilities, and 22 changing cubicles.
