Beach and sea is nice but too many people think that. It was very crowded but we didnt mind. We travelled in Opatija and Rijeka couple of times in the evenings because they are not so far. Excellent place

This beach stayed in my memory, as the best beach that i have ever seen. What was the best.... there were a million of people, but because of " lungo mare" it was not crowded at all. Beautifull small rocks that you can walk on....More

Hello! Rijeka, (about 30km from Moscenicka Draga). Maybe Opatija (15km from M.D.), but I'm not sure. Best regards

Hi guys! It is pretty close and it's perfect for a day trip. There is also nice walk along the coast and several nice restaurants to have a lunch.
