European Best Destinations's selection of the best beaches in Europe. A wind of freedom is sweaping among travellers this year: they have voted for the beach of Nugal (a partly nudist beach), as one of their favourite beach in Europe.
This beautiful beach located on the Makarska Riviera could also be ranked among the best secret beaches in Europe (it will take you more than 30 minutes to walk in the rocks before you get to the place).
In the very center, next to the old part of town and eastern part of the harbour, there is a pebble beach on Cape Osejava. East of this beach is a rocky area, which is also used for swimming and it leads to one of the most popular beaches of Makarska, Nugal Beach. It is isolated and hidden, mostly visited by nudists, and located 2 km from the town harbor. The beach is only accessible if you go on foot following a stony path, or by boat. Nugal is very picturesque and as such popular among tourists, especially today in the social media era that encourages more visits. It is surrounded by pine trees and is a real gem among the beaches of Makarska.
