With sand, a volleyball court, plenty of shade and a shallow dropoff, Stoncica is a great family beach. Plus there's an excellent restaurant, Konoba Stoncica, to sample local specialties.
The most stunning beach on the island and perhaps in all of Croatia is unusual Stiniva beach.
Park above the cove and take a narrow path downhill to reach this gorgeous pebble beach. The path is steep and not for the faint-hearted. Wear solid shoes and carry little. Many, many people come by boat.
Only a few kilometres further is Milna beach but some prefer Zaglav, only a 15-minute walk away. Zaglav is the island's largest sandy beach.
Keep heading south and you'll come to the tiny village of Rukavac. Here there is somewhat more accommodation and also a restaurant/bar with a terrace overlooking the sea.
Park at Rukavac and the idyllic pebble beach of Srebrna is only a few metres away.
