There are three major beaches on Marjan: Kasjuni, Bene and Kastelet.
Kasjuni is a beach located at south side of Marjan. It is big pebble beach favourite among both visitors and locals. No wonder, because there are so many beautiful things on this beach that include view of beautiful Marjan forest, clean sea, wide area for swimming and shallow waters ideal for swimming learning. Only drawback could be the fact that beach is little bit crowded during summer months and prices for renting chairs are higher than on other beaches due to popularity of Kasjuni.
Bene is a beach located inside Marjan park forest. It's mostly concrete beach. It is not reachable by car, so there are much less people there than on Kasjuni. Prices for chairs are significantly lower.
