We’ve Spent a Weekend on Soline Beach and Some Crazy Stuff Happened...
When was the last time you paid €3.50 for a great lunch on the very beach that’s
complemented with a glass of cold lager – included in that funny price tag? And you didn’t
even have to dry and change your shorts but could walk out of the sea and straight to your
desk where a waiter or waitress just pops up the moment you sit down even though the deck
That can only happen on Soline beach in Biograd Na Moru. Period.
Is that for real?
What’s plum in English is šljiva in Croatian. Ergo the logic behind the name.
Ah, yes, the crazy stuff...
While we were waiting for our meals, I turned my head to scan the bay. I immediately realized that something is wrong with the picture I’m seeing. There’s a boat at the edge of the swimming area. There’s a parasail hooked to the boat. Two people are hovering above the boat that isn’t moving.
At first, I thought that somebody is pulling the prank on people. But then, the guy next to me,
who apparently knows a thing or two about paragliding and parasailing, went on explaining
something about some sea thermal phenomenon, updrafts and downdrafts, and all these
difficult terms and laws of physics that I must’ve missed in school.
TL;DR version: when the boat slowed down to pull in the parasailers, they ran into updraft at that very spot. As a result, they kept hovering some 100 feet above the sea level, enjoying the scenery and an unlikely benefit of atmospheric dynamics.
We finished our meals and went back under our sunshades and they were still up there, obviously enjoying themselves.
I asked around and as it turns out, this isn’t an isolated incident. This happens almost on a daily basis. Talking about getting more for your money…
Anyway, if you wanna spend a hell of a day or a week on one of the Top 10 Beaches in Croatia, give us a call and we’ll help you organize things. In fact, we can do everything for you. Bookings and everything. Just send us a message and that’s it.
