Why we like Croatia
For the moment Croatia is more reminiscent of Ibiza in the 70s before it became trendy and expensive. For those that want to party all night, the hot spots of Pag, Hvar and Primosten will not disappoint and yet if that is your idea of hell on earth, then the quiet coves of another thousand islands will provide total solitude. Good hotels are still relatively few and far between, but they are coming. Discover it now.
What to expect on your Croatia holiday
From the slopes of the beautiful mountains which provide limited but respectable skiing in winter and which are carpeted by wild flowers in spring, down to the three hundred miles of rocky coastline, Croatia is a holiday paradise. To date, only sixty six of the thousand plus islands are inhabited, but more will follow. Each island is indented with sublime coves, perfect for swimming and snorkelling and invariably there is a restaurant close by serving a simple selection of fresh fish or barbequed lamb. While Dubrovnik is probably the most famous town, the coast and islands support a number of smaller versions which dating back to the late 16th century complete with Venetian architecture and original cobbled streets. Absolutely gorgeous.
Some ideas for a Croatia holiday
- Charter a boat with skipper and cruise the islands for a week moving from idyllic cove to idyllic cove. Heaven for children.
- Choose two or three islands, spend a few days on each, and use the excellent ferry service to move around.
- For the adventurous, there are plenty of activities either on the coast or the larger islands.
