Get the flavour

Croatia is a rising star on the holiday scene. It delivers knockout beaches with a generous side order of history and culture, making it a solid favourite for ticking those bucket list boxes. Away from the coast, its pine-clad mountains are perfect for hiking and drinking in unbeatable panoramic views.

Captivating coastline

The country has over 1,700km of spectacular coastline across its sun-blessed islands. When it comes to beaches, you can take your pick between sweeps of golden sand, pretty pebbled coves and bar-backed city beaches built for sunbathing. Keep your camera to hand, too – it’s a real winner for photo album entries.

Resorts for all sorts

Pula is packed with resorts all ready for fun in the sun. Further south you’ll find Split, a cosmopolitan harbour city surrounded by ancient Roman ruins and pristine beaches. And at Croatia’s southernmost tip lies the medieval city of Dubrovnik, dubbed the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ by Lord Byron.

Croatia resorts

Cavtat

Cavtat, the dreamy harbour town, is conveniently placed for getting around Croatia’s Adriatic coast.

Sibenik

Terracotta tiles, lush green treetops and ancient walls paint a pretty picture in this seaside city with its Venetian flavour.

Mlini

Neatly positioned between the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ – Dubrovnik – and the pretty town of Cavtat, Mlini ticks all of the boxes for a traditional Croatian escape.

Porec

An Italian-accented town on the Adriatic coast, Poreč mixes beautiful natural scenery with architectural heritage and plenty of seaside fun.

Dubrovnik Babin Kuk

Tucked away on the north-western tip of Dubrovnik, Babin Kuk is a great base for epic days of exploration.

Makarska

Combining beach, city and countryside in one cosmopolitan yet history-steeped retreat, Makarska is a superb choice for every desire.

Korcula Island

This idyllic island is a hit with families, thanks to its lively, medieval port town and handful of secluded beaches.

Brac Island Supetar

The capital of this glorious island, Supetar, is big on rustic charm and pushes the beachfront appeal.

Dubrovnik Old Town

Dubrovnik’s charming Old Town is a cobweb of UNESCO-stamped landmarks and historic marvels, only 4km south of the border with Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Pula (Resort of)

With its rich blend of Roman history and unspoiled coastline, Pula offers its visitors a diverse taste of Croatian culture.

Dubrovnik Lapad

Right next to the Old Town of Dubrovnik, along the Croatian coast, the Lapad peninsula is a breath of fresh air in amongst its maze of terracotta roofs.

Rovinj

Sitting pretty on the water, with its Italian touches and Mediterranean finishes, dense, wooded surroundings and crystal clear beaches are waiting in Rovinj.
