Croatia holidays are hugely popular for many reasons. Fantastic food, rocking music fests and ancient walled towns, to name a few. But this Mediterranean jewel’s biggest asset has to be its endless, breath-taking coastlines. Crystal clear waters, dazzling white pebbles and hundreds of bejewelled islands make for a bona fide beach-bum paradise. Croatia beaches are probably best on one of the glorious islands, from Krk to Dugi Otok and especially Zlatni Rat. But no matter where you choose to pull up a lounger, with Contiki you’re sure to find everything you could possibly want from sun-soaked paradise.
Croatia beach resorts offer plenty of sun and wondrous clear waters, but many don’t have beaches at all, as there tends to be very little sand on the Croatian seaside. Instead, resorts will use concrete platforms packed with loungers, with steps leading into the turquoise waters below. To get some proper Croatia beach
holiday action, you need to travel away from the resorts, to the gobsmacking beauty of Korcula, or the kaleidoscope coral reefs of the Elaphite islands. Sail to the Korcula archipelago or visit some of the vineyards of Hvar, where you have a whole feast of food, wine and nightlife to sink your teeth into.
Finally, the ‘Golden Cape’ – Zlatni Rat- is the iconic coastline of Croatia, a peninsula with stunning triangular tongue of shingle and azure waters. If you can avoid the crowds, you’ll find sweeping views and shallow waters to paddle around in. Multiple sailing and scuba options are available on Croatia island holidays, but we think it’s all about putting your shades on, feet up and fingers around a refreshing Mojito, and breathing in all of the sun-kissed serenity. So, get the sun-lotion packed, make sure you’ve got a good book, and get ready to experience some of the best beaches in the world.
