Croatia has many inviting splendours that make it a prime holiday destination: crystal-clear seas, pine-shaded beaches, colourful fishing ports and sun-bleached coves, to name a few. Its cultural heritage combines ancient Roman ruins, baroque palaces, and an Italian sense of fun.

The capital, Zagreb, is centred on a magnificent Gothic cathedral, while Dubrovnik is safeguarded by UNESCO-listed fortifications, and filled with picturesque buildings and lemon, orange and tangerine groves. Moreover, there is the gorgeous coastline; Istria, the largest peninsula in Croatia, where the royal blue sea meets lush greenery; and an archipelago of over a thousand islets.

Best Places to Stay

Island of Lopud
Island of Lopud

Your heart will soar as your boat approaches Lopud, the second of the Elephati Islands near Dubrovnik, where church spires can be seen among tall palms, pastel-coloured houses and stone cottages. It is the most tranquil of places, with no cars and a population of only 400 (though it was a teeming community of more than 1,000 in the 15th century).

As well as dozens of churches and chapels, dating back 1,000 years, you’ll find archaeological remains from ancient Greek, Roman and Slavic times and beautiful Sanj beach, a perfect crescent of white sand with just a beach bar, a three-quarters-of-a-mile walk or bike ride from the stylish Lafodia Sea Resort.

Things to do


The beauty of Croatia’s coastline is that it has remained largely untouched. With more than 1,000 islands along the Dalmatian Coast there is a vast array of beaches available from excluded serenity to family-friendly beaches.

One thing is for sure, all of the beaches in Croatia enjoy the crystal clear water if the Adriatic Sea and glorious Mediterranean climate.

Croatia's best beaches

Cruising the Dalmatian Coast by boat is one of the best ways to see Croatia. Explore picturesque harbours and idyllic hidden coves only accessible by boat, before diving into the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea and enjoy sunset dinners on one of Croatia's many excluded islands.
