Where to holiday in Croatia?


My family are looking to go on holiday at the end of August to Croatia, but don't really know where to go!

It is a big extended family holiday and there are a range of ages from older children to teenagers to adults to my gran!

We are looking for somewhere with nice beaches, things to do in the day and pleanty of places to eat out and things to do! A lively atmosphere would be great!

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

Many thanks in advance! :) x

My first thought after reading that was the Makarska Riviera.

for more help and ideas, please check the croatian tourist board site at http://croatia.hr/en-GB/Homepage

definitely choose somewhere to the south, i.e. Zadar, Split or Dubrovnik area. there's really an abundance of places to choose from... perhaps a trip to one of the islands would do your family some good, with a plenty for all...

South may be too hot for people from the UK.

I'd recommend Istria (possibly Rovinj area) or islands in the Kvarner Bay. You may check my MTB Street view movies from these areas. There are many, so browse through my YouTube channel, but start here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M35I33JH00.

With so many people, it could make sense going to a camping site (it's much more than just the tents and caravans :)). I'm sure the kids would love it, you're always by the sea, with the fresh air, the smells of pine trees... And so many things to see and do all around, including a possible short trip to Venice. Or Pula. Or Grožnjan and Motovun. Or the vineyards. Or just the sea. :)
