Hello my fellow VT's.,
I'll be having some hours to spend in Rijeka on a Saturday in July, aprox. from 10am to 5pm. Can you recomend some nice beach accessible to public transportation (if price does justify, to rent a bike might be an option) to spend a few hours?
Thanks (again) :)
Volosko or Opatija, you can reach both by local bus.
best beaches in Rijeka are at Pećine - just near hotel Jadran. Here normally come locals from east part of city. Many nice beaches mostly small marbles or concrete terraces.
if You at west part than I recommend going to Bivio or Kantrida under the old stadium. Here You will also find locals from Rijeka. However if You want to go to Opatija there is an tourist open top bus which can be used to see Rijeka and Opatija, ticket is valid 24 hours and also valid for city lines. Only place where I could find online ticket sale for this is on this site
however it say available soon. This line is "alive" from 15 jun to 15 september
hope is helpfull
