Zrce has been a top beach destination for partying in Croatia. Everyone who's been there knows its atmosphere.
This year due to pandemic, things are a bit different. I decided to visit Zrce on June 19, 2020, to check how does it look like after pandemic, and if there are any visitors.
How does Zrce look like in June 2020
As you can see from the photos, the first party visitors have already arrived. About a hundred people could be seen on the beach in the afternoon hours.
Not to be misled, this is just a small percentage of people who are usually staying at the beach this time of the year, but considering situation around pandemic and closed borders, the first look at the beach optimistically indicates one more good party season on Zrce.
There are only a few bars currently in operation, while others will be opened probably in July.
Parking near the beach is free, while normally you would be required to pay 10 kunas/hour.
Most of the visitors to the beach are Croatian and German nationality. We are still expecting British, French, and American tourists, since borders with those countries are not yet fully opened.
Should you visit Zrce in 2020
I believe those who decide to stay in Novalja and visit Zrce beach will have a great vacation this year.
If you are type of a person who can enjoy the party without crowds and glorious festivals, you will have a good time in a more intimate atmosphere of the beach and the town.
