Petrovac Beach: The easiest way to define serenity
Petrovac Beach is an attractive town beach, often appearing as crowded during July and August (the latter month being famed for many traditional festivals) but very nice if you manage to catch your spot early in the morning. This is when you can listen to waves kissing the shore, birds chirping beautiful songs, and other melodies that appear to compose Mother Nature’s Symphony of the Sea. However, when the beach is jammed with people, simply run away to any of its nearby restaurants or bars and enjoy your meal or coffee while having the bliss of one of the most amazing viewpoints on Earth.
