Croatia holidays

Croatia’s been catapulted into holiday stardom in the last decade – and rightly so! Stretching from Roman-influenced Split to UNESCO-listed Dubrovnik, its captivating coastline is a real knockout. The same's said for its islands, with chic Hvar a nightlife magnet and dreamy Brac a haven for beach fans. Whichever pocket of Croatia you choose for your stay, you can expect to spend days floating around crystal-clear waters, feasting on freshly-caught seafood and tracing the country's rich past among cobbled streets. Yep, Croatia's history is on full show, with Roman amphitheatres, Venetian palaces and Medieval monasteries among its treasures.

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

Love history? Say hello to Split, a cosmopolitan harbour city surrounded by ancient Roman ruins and pristine beaches. Then at Croatia’s southernmost tip lies the medieval city of Dubrovnik, dubbed the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ by Lord Byron. And the islands around these regions? Talk about dreamy.
