Evening fun
There are quite some options for evening entertainment. Personally we like to listen to live music. You will find the musical program at www.rivieracrikvenica.com or from the various bars and settlements (Dramalj, Selce and Crikvenica) in the brochures from the tourist office in the Center or online at the Facebook pages.

Just behind beach bar Poli Mora, you find a small outside entertainment area, to play some mini golf and coin operated machines. Although a bit old fashioned, it brings your memories back to the olden days. Try your luck at one of the machines or play a game of mini golf together. It's not all perfect, but it definitely brings fun to your evening!

Go here at about sunset for a nice drink. You will find one of the best placed tables in a restaurant right here! We never really eat here, but merely go for the great views and cozy atmosphere right on the water. A mostly family run business, brings often good service. One of the younger waiters and co-owners speaks almost every European language :-)

This beach is not easily accessible but it offers a great quiet environment. In high season, be prepared to see people swimming without clothes on. Located right at the end of Selce (past the camp sites), you will find steps going up. A 15 minute walk high above the sea, will eventually lead you to this beach. The path continues further, so you can keep walking further onwards. This route is also perfect for days when it's not too hot for hiking.
