Croatia family holidays part2 will add more children activities and some useful suggestions to find all the things to do in Croatia with kids.
Here's what you will find on this page:
I'm sure your kinds would like to make sandcastles or to play volleyball on a sandy beach. It's true that the most Croatian beaches pebble, some rocky and not too many sandy ones.
Sandy beaches in Croatia are sometimes difficult to find, but there are a lot of these beaches scattered all along the Adriatic coast. The best way to find them is to ask the locals where to find one close to where you are staying.
Maybe you have already heard that you need to pack your water shoes when you go to Croatia. Many visitors complain about sea-urchins that can be a problem and beach shoes with a rubber sole are essential.
But still Croatia offers some beautiful sandy beaches too where it is possible for children to play on the sand without fear. Here is my list:
Vis island sandy beaches - The rugged coast around the Vis island is spotted with stunning coves, caves and a couple of sandy and pebble beaches. Two of these sandy beaches stand out: Zaglav and Stoncica sandy beaches. Here are some accommodation deals near these beaches !
Looking for a relaxing day at the beach where children can be entertained with different activities and play safely in shallow water?
Most of the beaches in Croatia are pebbly, rocky and narrow, but they have the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean. Kids snorkeling will enhance your holiday by enjoying undersea life.
Just bring your own gear or rent it at your vacation spot in Croatia. Share the joy of finding under water fish, plants and coral in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic sea.
You and your children will love snorkeling in Croatia, because it’s easy (anybody can do it!), it’s family-friendly, and it’s relatively cheap (you can do it anywhere, and with a simple gear).
As the sea in Croatia is very clean and clear, the underwater visibility is perfect what makes snorkeling very safe in Croatia. Don't worry about sharks or whales. The only creatures you can run into are dolphins in the Adriatic. Island Losinj and Rovinj are the most popular sites for dolphins. Book your place on Losinj bottle-nose dolphins tour!
For those who want an active holiday, rafting in Croatia is one of the most exciting outdoors adventures for everyone from 7-77 years of age.
Rafting on the rivers of Croatia is a wonderful way to get in touched with the unspoiled Croatian nature. All the rivers are with typical karst landscape all along the way, adorned by green banks and deep canyons.
The river Cetina is one of the most popular spots in Croatia for outdoor enthusiasts. River comes out of 5 strong wells at 380 m above the sea, under two mountains, Dinara and Gnjat, few km northern from town Vrlika, from where it flows south-east through the fields of Sinj, town Trilj to Zadvarje, where it turns west to Omis where it joins the Adriatic Sea.
There are many local agencies organizing rafting trips to Cetina River. However, the best way to book it is through some of the large agencies offering adventure tours all over Croatia, like Raftrek, and Huck Finn.
On Croatia family holidays part2 Croatia’s national park system, Plitvice Lakes National Park is among the mandatory destinations. Croatia offers 6 national parks and 3 parks of nature but Plitvice with the series of turquoise waterfalls and lakes, is a top recommended children destination.
When just sunbathing and swimming is no longer enough, some Croatia adrenaline adventures can enhance your holidays in Croatia.
I would never suggest any Croatia adrenaline adventures tours that are not 100% safe. These can be high adrenaline charged adventures, but the safety is always on the first place.
If you ever wanted to ride a Zip Line (including kids) than the Zip Line in Omis is a right place
for you. The Zip-Line company has 8 zip lines which cross the Cetina
River Canyon, 3 km out of Omis town. Read more about Cetina Canyon zip line !
While swimming at Plitvice lakes is strictly forbidden, you can actually take a swim in the lakes at Krka National park, under Skradinski Buk waterfalls.
This is a unique massive natural pool for swimming, under three waterfalls.
In spite of the fact that it's rather crowded in high season and the entrance fee, this will be a great fun for families with children.
If you love watching Game of Thrones, Croatia is a right place to find all the best filming locations of this popular series. According some studies, Dubrovnik Croatia, 250.00 tourists visited Dubrovnik between 2012 and 2015 due to Game of Thrones.
According to these sources, 60.000 people have visited the Dubrovnik and its surroundings annually, merely because the series was shot there.
Here are best known Game of Thrones locations in Croatia worth visiting:
Windsurfing at Croatia family holidays part2 is one of the most important summer outdoor activities. Whenever I talk about windsurfing, the first place that crosses my mind is magnificent pebble beach Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) in Bol town, on island of Brac.
No sport other than windsurfing in Croatia can give you the unbeatable
feeling of being out in the open, gliding smoothly over beautiful, clear
Adriatic sea waters. There are many windsurfing destinations along the Adriatic coast.
If I tell you that sea kayaking in Croatia is the perfect way to explore Croatia's unspoiled coast and islands, it must be a reason for it.
Unlike the Pacific Ocean, the North Sea or the Mediterranean Sea, Adriatic sea is calm, warm, clean and tide changes are almost imperceptible.
