Europe's Secret Beaches: Porat Beach, Croatia

Porat Beach, Bisevo Island, Croatia

The most famous attraction on this tiny Mediterranean island off the Dalmatian Coast is the Blue Cave, a limestone sea cave so named for the refracted sunlight that glows an eerie blue. An equally worthy but lesser-known reason to visit: expansive Porat Beach, on the western and lee side, thanks to large limestone cliffs protecting it from high winds. It’s a scenic place to break for lunch or a drink at the small seafood restaurant and beach bar. crobeaches.com
