Enjoying the sea and beaches is one of the main assets of Croatian tourism, and the coast and waters of Podstrana are among the cleanest in the entire country.
The entire coast of Podstrana is tame and suitable for swimming, and has been groomed as one long (6-kilometre) beach in almost its entire length.
The beaches located near larger accommodation facilities particularly stand out – for example, the excellent quality of the sea at the beach near Hotel Split has recently been officially confirmed by the international organisation GUWVA, which awarded it with a white flag – the only symbol in the world that guarantees a clean natural environment in order to protect its wildlife.
This acknowledgment has placed Podstrana among the elite company of the dozen-or-so ˝green superstars˝ in Croatia, i.e. locations that have received this award.
