Architectural box of chocolates ;) Beautiful view, but... crowd, crowd everywhere - on the beach, on the streets, in the restaurants... It was comparable to AC/DC concert, without AC/DC of course (what a pity;) I know nothing about restaurants in Moscenicka Draga, cause I had "no reservation" (A. Bourdain, my Idol;) Visit Moscenicka Draga on june or september, lovely place.

Vry nice small Town, but the beach is the main attraction. Very nice long pebble beach. Best beach in Kvarner.

Beach and sea is nice but too many people think that. It was very crowded but we didnt mind. We travelled in Opatija and Rijeka couple of times in the evenings because they are not so far. Excellent place

This beach stayed in my memory, as the best beach that i have ever seen. What was the best.... there were a million of people, but because of " lungo mare" it was not crowded at all. Beautifull small rocks that you can walk on. Great sunset.... Must visit

Make sure to keep walking PAST the main beach to the second, smaller beach. It's quiet, there's a cafe with food, beer and coffee and free wi-fi and you can rent a comfy beach chair at an affordable rate so you don't have to lie on the rocks all day. The water is crystal clear and it is paradise.

Moscenicka is a 1300 year old town that looks very much the same as it did when it was built. The town guide was very informative about the history of the town which has just over 150 inhabitants. Moscenicka Draga is the lower town by the sea while the upper town is the historical one. Well worth the visit if... More

Small, coastal town outside of Opatija with beautiful pebble beach and serene surroundings,set at Ucka mountain and overlooking Kvarner Bay. Well worth the visit.

Our family of 5 visited Moscenicka Draga in June 2016. I enjoyed this beach but still can't get over the rocks which are very uncomfortable for me (sorry folks, I prefer sand!). Still, this is an improvement over Medveja which I visited the day prior. There are many restaurants and cafes lining the beachfront. The beachfront is a little narrow... More

My wife and I visited this resort by boat. It is situated at the bottom of a natural ravine and can be the base for some interesting walks. There are steps leading up from the harbour to some colourful interesting narrow alleyways. The main pebbly beach is quite busy and there is a nearby camp site as well as a... More

Small fishing town with very nice beach. There are some beautiful restaurants up the hill, couple minutes drive with very nice view. If you are staying somewhere near you should definitely come to this beach.
