From Sand to Stone, We Have You Covered!

Considering the location of the city, Rijeka's beaches are located in the far eastern and far western parts of the city. As our Apartment Rijeka Terra I and Studio apartment Rijeka Terra II are located in the city center, and the Apartment Grobnik Terra Magica Deluxe, the Triple Room Grobnik Terra Magica and the Apartment Viskovo Terra 5 Deluxe are located above the city, access to the beaches from Rijeka Apartments is easy. You can reach most beaches within 10-15 minutes. On the eastern side, at Pećine, there are eight beaches, most of which are only a few minutes away from the city center. In the western part, you can find your ideal beach from Kantrida to Preluka - there are five beaches on Kantrida, and if you don't like sea water, you can swim and sunbathe at the Kantrida Pools, the largest and most beautiful swimming complex in Croatia. There is a whole series of larger and smaller beaches and coves from Bivi to Preluk, which are connected by a promenade with numerous facilities, from catering and sports facilities to children's parks located in the shade of vegetation. These beaches are ideal for those who, in addition to sunbathing and swimming, also enjoy sports activities at sea. Thanks to its very specific location and the wind that blows there, Preluk beach is a well-known and favorite beach of surfers. Also, here you can find smaller, nameless beaches, hidden coves and beaches for those who prefer to be secluded. Some of them can only be reached from the sea.

For our Apartments Rijeka Terra I and Terra II in the city center, city buses run to all beaches. It is a few minutes' walk from the bus station to the beaches, and free parking is available near most beaches.
