From the air, Croatia’s coastline is breathtakingly beautiful

As deep, emerald pine woods descend to the shore, then white stone beaches and islands sparkle before the bright sapphire blue of the Adriatic sea hits your eyes. This is Croatia’s wow factor.

For many years the tourist board has used the slogan “the Mediterranean as it once was”. It’s a perfect description of this amazing little country of 1,244 islands of which approximately 50 are inhabited.

There are few destinations less than a three- hour flight from the UK that offer the diversity of Croatia. Most visitors head for the coast and islands where the pristine waters of the Adriatic are some of the cleanest in the world. More than 120 beaches and marinas have been awarded the coveted Blue Flag status.

This new country became independent in 1991, is joining the European Union in 2013 and has a long and colourful history. Liburnian, Illyrian and other tribes, the Romans, Venetians. Hungarians and Ottomans have all left their cultural stamp.

In some places, tiny stone houses and temples are still standing from Illyrian times and national treasures also include Roman relics, medieval walled cities, churches, basilicas, palaces and temples in styles from Byzantine to Baroque.

Exquisite stone carvings are seen on buildings in even the smallest cobbled streets. Quaint villages and towns usually lead to a hidden cloister here or a beautiful piazza there. Simply stunning.

So what of contemporary Croatia? Croatians on the coast enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle with the flair and charm of the Italians just across the water. Customs such as the afternoon siesta in summer and the ‘corsa’ evening walk are all here, as are festivals of dance, music and tradition using the open-air treasures as a stage.

Service is usually of a high standard in even the simplest of restaurants and the world’s brand
names are available in quality shops and stores.

Temperatures in July and August, the hottest months, are 28-32°C. May, June and September are usually sunny and between 22-25°C, April and October are often around a pleasant 16-21°C and nights can be a little chillier. The sea usually remains warm until mid October.

Closer than you think too. Flight times are short. London to Pula, Rijeka and Zagreb is usually two hours, to Split around two hours 15 minutes and to Dubrovnik two hours 30 minutes.

Add 15 to 30 minutes for departures from Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Edinburgh and Belfast.

Wherever you choose on the coast or islands, less than a two-hour drive inland will take you into a different world of national parks, forests, waterfalls, mountains and rural traditions. We strongly recommend taking some excursions or hiring a car to explore. Driving on Croatia’s uncrowded roads is a breeze – see our out and about section.
