Book holidays in Croatia to enjoy one of the most naturally spectacular and engaging countries to emerge on to the tourist scene in recent years. Beaches stretch out along the magnificent, fractured coastline of this European beauty, while Croatia's cities, towns, villages and resorts offer a warm welcome to travellers seeking sun, sea, sand, history and culture.
From island hopping among Croatia's jewels of the Adriatic Sea to flopping on a sun lounger at one of the country's superb hotels or taking a city break in Split or Dubrovnik, Croatia holidays offer it all.
Traditional sunshine holidays, for example, can be found in the Croatian coastline's resorts, where great hotels, tempting eateries and just enough nightlife are the perfect after-hours accompaniment to the beach or swimming pool - although you won't find as many all-inclusive options as you might elsewhere. Just remember to choose your beach resort carefully if you have a preference for sand rather than pebbles beneath your bronzing feet.
The most popular resorts in Croatia include those in the north on the Dalmatian Coast; the Dubrovnik Riviera resorts in the south, such as Plat, Mlini, and Cavtat; and those on the Istrian Riviera, which include Porec, Pula, and Rovinj. And the islands, such as Brac, Korcula, and Hvar, boast glorious aquamarine seas and brilliant white sand.
Make a beeline for a Croatian city during your holiday and you won't be disappointed. The streets are packed with fascinating, historic buildings, while the shops and cafés reveal the modern flipside of this cool, young country.

The weather in Croatia is typically Mediterranean, with hot summer days, pleasantly warm springs and autumns, and cooler, wetter winters (it's lush and green for a reason). In July and August, holidaymakers can expect to enjoy average daytime temperatures of between 25C and 30C, while winter sees lows of 10C.
Split Summer Festival; July-August: In summer, the delightful, coastal city of Split plays host to a variety of performances, both on the streets and in historic venues; some events are ticketed and some are free.
Dubrovnik Summer Festival; July-August: The “Pearl of the Adriatic” dishes up a second helping of cultural Croatia when the sun shines. Check what's on in advance and book tickets early if a performance takes your fancy, as the most popular events will sell out.
Full Moon Festival, in Zadar, north Dalmatia; July/August: This rather low-key, but stunningly beautiful event sees the seafront promenade (known as the Riva) lit by torches, candles, and the full moon; an unforgettable spectacle.
