"...this is the beach by day..." Opatija Tourist Trap Tip by lauriejeanne

Opatija Tourist Traps: 3 reviews and 3 photos


As described before, the amount of tourists that hit this tiny town is unbelievable. Yes it is possible to get away from them, however, you really do have to make the effort!

Fun Alternatives: Just outside of town are rocky areas where you can lie out, tan or swim in the warm Adriatic. You don't need to go far! But do stake out your hidden spot early -- they will disappear as the day progresses.

Now if you REALLY want to get away from the tourists, my stoyr continues under OFF THE BEATEN PATH.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
