‘From flamingo-pink shores to wild coastlines and everything in between, our travel writers pick the continent’s finest sands, and places to stay nearby‘, The Guardian team writes.
One of the best 40 is Divna beach on Pelješac.
Living up to its name – beautiful beach – Plaža Divna is on the north coast of the Pelješac peninsula, with pine-covered hills flanking the little pebbly bay. There are a few shady spots, and the marine life between the beach and the tiny island facing the bay makes for brilliant snorkelling.
A cafe sells drinks and basic food, and behind the beach is the small Camp Divna campsite (pitches from €5.40pp) set in an olive grove. Non-campers can rent a flat at Apartment Villa Waterfront (from €122 for two or three people) overlooking a beach near the ferry port of Trpanj, The Guardian team wrote.
