Camping in Croatia
Croatia is a jewel in the Mediterranean crown and a wonderful destination for families looking for a blissful beach holiday. With a great climate, stunning beaches and national parks and historical cities, it has everything you need for a perfect family holiday.
You can fly to Croatia with a variety of airlines, including Ryanair, EasyJet, Jet2 and Thomson. The main airports are Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Spit and Pula. Croatia has a good public transport system with trains and buses connecting the regions, and ferries out to all the main islands. Croatia is also an easy country to navigate by car and there are plenty of reputable hire car companies with desks at the airports.
Croatia is becoming more and more popular with British tourists, but is still a far less busy destination than many European countries. Its island-speckled coastline is indisputably its main attraction, with crystal clear waters and long sands perfect for swimming and relaxing on. Or you could try your hand at the myriad of water sports available, such as snorkelling, diving, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing.
If you can bring yourself to turn away from the coast, you’ll find an equally stunning interior lined by the Dinaric Alps. Croatia has eight national parks, including the UNESCO-listed Plitvice Lakes with its stunning waterfalls. Our campsites are located in Istia and Dalmatia, with their beautiful coast and pretty hilltop towns. Istia was part of Italy during the early part of the 20th century and you can still visit the well-preserved Arena (a Roman amphitheatre) in Pula. The Dalmatian Coast is full of beautiful beaches, stunning islands and the historic towns of Split and Dubrovnik.
With so much to see and do in Croatia, staying at a campsite allows you to take full advantage of your stunning surroundings, whilst providing a relaxing base after a busy day’s exploring. Croatia is served by a number of great camping companies, such as Canvas Holidays and Eurocamp. You can choose from a variety of accommodation to suit your family’s needs from tents, through luxury mobile homes and lodges.
All our recommended Croatian campsites offer fantastic facilities, impeccable organisation, tasty restaurants and a relaxed holiday atmosphere. Set in stunning beach, lakeside, countryside and mountain settings you might find that it’s hard to leave the site! Wherever you choose to visit in Croatia though, you can be guaranteed of a wonderful break with your family.
