Novalja is especially attractive for its beautiful sandy and pebbled beaches. Most beaches are surrounded by coniferous woods. Beaches Zrće, Straško, Braničevica, Vrtić, Babe, Trinćel and Caska are each beautiful in their own way. Some have been awarded a Blue Flag. Alongside the beauty of the landscape, stony pastures lined with specific drystone walls, the beaches offer a variety of sports and entertainment services as well as rich traditional cuisine at their restaurants.
