This place is rich in different types of shells. I enjoyed sitting at the beach and collecting shells. I loved the seafood and the people were friendly.
I adored the reception by this place. The people here are really welcoming. I was able to enjoy some of their cuisines and their hospitality. I had the whole beach to myself and swam in the waters, it was a refreshing trip
My kids loved collecting shells of different kinds from the bay of old Pavljana. A walk along the warm sandy beaches was soothing to the soul and i even got an inspiration in writing my new book. The beaches make the place beautiful and more attractive.
The beautiful beach with clear sea is ideal for swimming areas which my partner and i loved so much. The inhabitants of the area are amazingly hospitable and kind which made it easier for us to interact with them. Such an amazing place.
