You’ll find Alana Beachclub in a beautiful spot between the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea and the towering peaks of the Paklenica National Park
Alana Beachclub is just great for all the usual inclusive Neilson activities with a large sailing bay and six tennis courts, there's a climbing wall at the beachclub, or you can go rock climbing in the national park.
The central tower is a local landmark, easy to spot, standing proud over the pine trees and gardens. It has a fabulous new roof-top cocktail bar with stunning, panoramic views out to sea and is a great place to watch the sun set.
We’re planning to spruce up the beachclub with some landscaping in the gardens and a completely new restaurant and terrace in a great spot close to the water’s edge. The beach bar will also have a new look and the fitness facilities will have a new and improved home.
It's great to be back in Croatia. Renowned for it's natural beauty, crystal clear water and abundance of historic sites, there's much to love about this country and we're excited to discover a new area.
Good to know
You have a great choice of rooms in three different areas of the beachclub. The central tower has rooms over nine floors; the views from the upper floors are hard to beat with all club sea view rooms located on the 5th-9th floors. There are more rooms either side of the pool, these are split over three floors, the majority of which look out across the gardens and many have sea views.
Activities on the water
The usual watersports are included at Alana Beachclub; choose from sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, water skiing and wakeboarding.
Launch from the pebble beach into the large bay. With very few other water users, it’s yours to enjoy to the max. Most afternoons there’s a good cross on-shore breeze, beginner and intermediate dinghy sailors and windsurfers will be in their element.
Grab a stand up paddle board or kayak and glide along the coastline of the clear blue Adriatic. The ever-present mountains of the national park are always in view. A sunset paddle board adventure is pretty special and a fine way to end the day. If water skiing or wakeboarding is more your thing, you’ll love the large bay and super flat mornings.
The wind typically picks up in the afternoons, blowing cross on-shore most days. The typical wind force ranges from 3-4 with the most consistent conditions in June, July and August.
Activities on the shore
Back on dry land, there's heaps more inclusive activities for you to try with tennis, mountain biking, fitness classes and a climbing wall.
The climbing wall with daily instruction is an inclusive activity. If that gives you a thirst for more and you really want to get the adrenaline pumping, for a little extra you can pre-book and join us for some exhilarating rock climbing in the national park (one of the most famous free climbing sites in Europe).
There are hundreds of routes for beginner and experienced climbers to choose from and you'll get professional instruction from local experts. We think this will be really popular, so make sure you pre-book before travel to guarantee your space. Don't forget to pack your hiking boots, the glorious Paklenica National Park has plenty of clearly marked paths to take you on a number of unforgettable walks and hikes.
The mountain biking is aimed at beginner to intermediates. Routes skirt the base of the national park, mainly on gravelly fire roads. There's loads of potential for more rides and our resourceful bike guides will be on a mission to discover loads more routes for all levels.
Back at the beachclub, there's six new tennis courts with inclusive daily coaching and free play. If you're a keen player you can get some intensive coaching with the premium tennis pack. With just six places available you'll get some quality time with the coaches, but we do recommend you pre-book before travel to save your space. There’s also an outdoor fitness area and air-conditioned indoor fitness with views across the pool and gardens towards the sea.
It’s club board at Alana Beachclub brought to you by a team of local chefs (daily breakfast, daily lunch and four evening meals each week). Tables are set on an alfresco terrace amongst fragrant pine trees and close to the water's edge. The hotel owner has his own vineyard and the wines are served in the restaurant. Choose from robust reds and crisp whites; they’re utterly delicious. At the end of the day, drink your sundowner with an awesome view from our rooftop cocktail bar.
