What About The Accommodations There?

If there's one thing that you have to think of beforehand, it will be your accommodation. The resorts have their own facilities, but it would be best if you can book ahead.

Majority of the best hotels and villas are located in Dramalj, one of the most talked-about resorts in Crikvenica. It is located near the northern portion of the Adriatic coast and around 30 kilometers away from the tip of Rijeka.

Besides the Falkensteiner Hotel Therapia Crikvenica, you can also choose to stay in their private apartments and camping grounds. They are cheaper alternatives, though the facilities will not be as luxurious as those that you can find in hotels.

Dramalj offers more than just swimming for the guests. There are various coves that you can definitely explore during your free time. The pebble beach will be of great interest to the children, who may love to play with them. It also encourages you not to wear those swimming shoes.

Every year, Dramalj comes alive with a variety of entertainment and cultural presentations for the tourists. There are also different sporting events that you can watch and even participate in.

Selce is tamer version of Dramalj. This is where you can get the most beautiful beaches and coastlines where you can stroll. There are also countless activities held almost every night, ranging from concerts, exhibits, cultural performances, and other types of shows.
