The most popular dog friendly beach is the one in Crikvenica – Podvorska beach. It is located on top of the breakwater of the Podvorska harbor, after which it was named. It offers numerous facilities such as dog showers, running water, shade tents, benches, garbage showers, running and walking space. Unfortunately, the beach does not have any shade, but small pine trees have been planted there recently. Until they grow in, we recommend you take parasols with you. This beautiful dog friendly beach has been adapted in 2010 and every year the town makes sure that new facilities are added to it.
Most of the other beaches are neither specially adapted nor fenced and are usually places located a few kilometers away from the popular beaches. We recommend you bring enough water, food, water dish for the dog, parasols and similar.
ADVICE! Be sure to shower your dog after he comes out of the sea so you rinse out all the salt which could irritate his skin. Make sure you brush him carefully considering the dogs molt more during summer.
