Luxury Croatia Holidays

Rustic charm and an Adriatic coastline

Luxury Holidays to Croatia

Holidays in Croatia offer wonderful sand and shingle beaches, historic towns and cities and a fascinating culture just waiting to be discovered. It’s fast becoming a favourite with British holidaymakers and it isn’t hard to see why. Couples will love the romance of the narrow winding streets and chic harbours, while families will find Blue Flag beaches, English speaking locals and lots of activities. If you prefer to explore there are opportunities to rent a car and discover the coastline, rural villages and waterfalls.

With so many fantastic options, choosing the right place for your Croatia holidays can be difficult. Dubrovnik Riviera is on a separate stretch of coastline, south of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s coast, and is home to the cosmopolitan town of Dubrovnik. If you want to spend your days island hopping, head to Split Riviera, where you can book boat trips from the city of Split or spend days admiring its historic architecture and lively culture. And for Venetian architecture and unique views, Rovinj is on the Istrian Riviera.

Samantha Grist

Dubrovnik and Split make a great combination. It's quicker to take the motorway between them (about three and a half hours), but the coastal road is much more scenic. You can also opt to travel by speedboat, which takes around two hours.

Destinations in Croatia
Dubrovnik Riviera
The Dubrovnik Riviera zigzags between the gilded walled city of Dubrovnik and the quaint harbour town of Cavtat, taking in mysterious pine-clad islands and panoramic beaches along the way.
Istrian Riviera
The Istrian Riviera jags around the northern corner of Croatia, close to the mountainous Slovenian border. It’s a rugged coastline starring pretty fishing ports and an island-sprinkled national park.
Split Riviera
The Split Riviera sets one of the grandest cities in Croatia against a backdrop of coves, forests and beach-dipped islands. Roman history is strong here – expect plenty of Classical ruins.
Kvarner Gulf
The Kvarner Gulf sits in the north of Croatia. The islands here each have a character of their own – some come with baroque towns, while others peddle dolphin-friendly bays.

Flight Information

Flights from the UK to Croatia take around 2 hours 30 minutes.

When to go

July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit. It's less busy, plus the weather tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).


Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 15 kuna or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
