There’s Something for Everyone

Each island has something unique to offer, from sweeping ocean views and beautiful walking trails to UNESCO protected national parks with expansive lakes and stunning waterfalls. Whether you want to paint, hike, cycle, swim, snorkel or paddle board, Croatia should be firmly on your must-visit list.

The Shimmering Crystal Clear Waters

The enchanting turquoise waters are magical, and you won’t be able to resist going in for a swim at every opportunity. Snorkelling is one of our favourite activities and there’s nothing quite like exploring the colourful world beneath the waves.

The Food

Between the freshest seafood, incredible local cheese, wine, olive oil, and produce bursting with colour and flavour, it’s impossible not to love the varied and incredibly delicious Croatian menu.

Every time you step ashore into a new destination you’ll feel as though you’re walking straight into a dream world and you’ll have many ‘pinch me, is this real?’ moments!

The Beaches

Although many Croatian beaches are pebbly, we think this adds to their charm. You won’t find it difficult to snap up a prime spot, just don’t forget to pack some shoes to help you navigate your way to the shoreline!


The ancient architecture and rich history has been luring travellers and creatives to Croatia for centuries. Spend your days walking the ancient city walls, taking outdoor art classes and wandering around impressive museums and galleries. Croatia is also a must-visit destination for all Game of Thrones fans, because who doesn’t want to see Daenerys’ actual throne room?


Want to spend your days relaxing in the beautiful natural landscape, but can’t wait to let your hair down in the evenings? In Croatia, you can do both in style!
