This pebble beach has lovely clear water but is spoilt by the ugly blow-up tubes of the Aquatic park moored off the beach. great for kids but not adults! Some great views but we found better spots along the coast.

On are beach days we tried to do different beaches each time. We did Copacabana beach one day and enjoyed it. The water is very shallow so ideal for young children. You will need your aqua/divers shoes because as all beaches are pebbled, not sand in the area, copacabana beach is no different. There is plenty of room to lounge around for the day and a choice of water sports too. There are a couple of cafe/bars too. Take your own water due to the water being expensive and also sold in glass bottles ( not ideal for the beach) There are some shops/restaurants/bars nearby at the holiday resort just up from the beach take the dirt track up the hill.

This beach was located close to our apartment and we visited it every day. There's no sandy beach but it is all pebbles so remember to bring some aqua shoes with you.

Sunshade and sun bed rent is 30kn but the payment is collected only after some time so you might get out for free. There's activities for the the bit older vhildren in the form of air-filled floating park that reminds of Wipe-out. Renting of jetski or paddleboat is possible.
Only downside is that there's no free shower and you have to pay 2kn for 30s of cold shower

We spent a few hours at this beach on a July afternoon with children aged 5, 8, and 11 and thought it was ok, not great. As point of comparison, we went to a total of six beaches in various parts of the country. Copacabana was quite crowded, but not impossible to find a place to lay out and move around. There was actually lots of space by the concrete pier you use to get to the inflatable water playground, probably because the water there has some underwater moss. My 8 and 11 year old loved the inflatable playground, especially since it was close to the shore and thus didn't tire them out swimming to it as it did in Trogir. The views of the bridge and cruise ships was quite cool, and two of them left in the late afternoon as we watched, although if you plan to take a ferry from the main port, you'll see the same view there. I was surprised that the beach seemed a little dull in the afternoon if you wanted a party atmosphere (for instance, no music), although I believe there are parties there some evenings. We drove there from our Labad apartment since our 5 year old couldn't make it in the heat on foot and, to our surprise and pleasure, found a lot of free parking on the side of the ride close to the beach. In general, a fine day at a Croatian beach, but nothing special.
