Preparing for a summer party vacation can sound like this: “I have no idea what to wear there!” We understand, even if you’re not going to a certain location for the first time, you will be in doubt what to wear. The goal is to feel comfortable and, at the same time, to shine. We know, if you have the opportunity to go to Zrće for the first time, you could feel more worried after this introduction. But don’t worry, you’re going to enjoy, relax, party and dance, whole day and whole night. So, at first, you need comfortable clothes and shoes, and some shiny details. There’s no strict dress code, but we have recommendations for you.
Weather in Croatia
Summer in Croatia and on the Adriatic coast is hot. Between June and September, daily temperatures reach 35°C. The weather near the sea is characterized by humidity, and there are short rainy periods during the summer. Moreover, there is characteristic wind called bora blowing from the Velebit mountain range, and it is very sharp, cold and strong. While the bora brings nice weather, sirocco (also known as “jugo”) brings rain and bad weather. In short, be ready for different types of weather.
For the after the beach, wear beachwear
If you have enough energy for lying on the beach before the after beach party, you will probably wear a swimsuit or bikini.
For everyone, don’t forget sunscreen and a hat, the sun is very dangerous. We do not recommend walking anywhere without flip-flops. Walking without shoes in clubs is not allowed and it can be dangerous, the wet floor can be slippery and broken glass can cut your toes. Be aware of this, wear flip-flops, sandals or something comfortable.
However, wear some sunglasses and stay sexy and mysterious. Don’t forget, walking without a shirt and pants in town is not allowed!
For girls, nice top and short pants, short dress or pareo is a good choice. However, long sleeves and white tunic are good choices too, but if you prefer to be more sexy than romantic, choose short tops and short pants.
Don’t forget accessories: a satin hair band, flowers in the hair, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and spangles where ever you want!
Boys, stay hot in cool T-shirts, and shorts. Don’t worry, there are many shops in Novalja where you can buy appropriate beachwear, hats and whatever you want.
We recommend that you take good care of your personal belongings. Be it on the beach, at the club, everywhere you go. There are a lot of people in the crowd, and nobody knows who has sticky fingers. The easiest way to secure personal belongings is to carry them in a waterproof wallet around the neck or in a belt pack. Do not take what you don’t need. ID, money and mobile phone is enough.
Stay cool and shine at night
As you know, Zrće Beach never sleeps. Night is the second the most important part of the day, while the “after-beach” afternoon comes first.
For everyone, again, take care of your personal belongings.
And now the question arises, what to wear at night? We don’t guarantee that you will be at one place all night. There are plenty of things to see on Zrće at night, you could walk around and maybe take a walk on the beach. The aim is to feel comfortable and safe. Sneakers, sandals or flip-flops are an option. Everything is acceptable. The night is warm and wet. Short dress, pants, tops, again, everything is acceptable.
The same thing goes for boys, short pants, T-shirts.
If you have the plan to make reservations for a VIP table, you will not go wrong if you decide to dress glamorously.
Don’t miss the opportunity to shine with jewelry and a creative hairstyle.
