Croatia is a stunning destination for a family holiday, offering everything anyone could want in the way of family-friendly accommodation, stunning beaches, lush forests and exciting islands and cities.
Heading to the beach is great on the Makarska coast, which offers 60km of beaches with clear and warm water, perfect for the kids. Krk Island is another great spot with an excellent reputation for its family-friendly beaches.
Inland Croatia is also stunning with fascinating Roman architecture on view in Pula, Zadar and Split, surrounded by gorgeous scenery. Another advantage is that accommodation tends to be more affordable inland than on the coast.
Istria is a great family destination offering lessons at the Valley of Horses Riding School along with a fun hiking and cycling route on the Parenzana, which used to be a railway track. There are also nine lighthouses to visit in the area, always a popular item with the children. Also visit fascinating Hum, which is known as the world’s tiniest town.
Wherever you go in Croatia you are sure to find great activities for both children and adults, along with some of the best baby-friendly accommodation, allowing you to relax, have fun and really enjoy the break.
