Why Croatia is the perfect holiday destination

Split in Croatia

Croatia, located on the beautiful Adriatic coast in Central and South-eastern Europe, is a holiday destination that just can’t be ignored.

With an incredible sunny climate, picturesque cities, stunning coastlines, and rich history, it’s hardly surprising that many opt to visit the nation for a relaxing time away.

For those in search of their own getaway this year, our affordable single traveller holidays to Croatia are the perfect option. At Friendship Travel, we have departures to this charming country in September and think it’s well worth your consideration.

Why do we like Croatia so much? Read on for just a few insights into what makes Croatia a holiday destination to remember.

Beautiful weather

When arriving in Croatia you will discover a glorious climate with 2,500 hours of sun per year. From the summer right through to September and October, you can expect lovely temperatures on the Adriatic coast of up to 25°C. A holiday on the Croatian coast at this time of year will be characterised by pleasant sunny days that are perfect for swimming in the sea or relaxing on the beach and not too hot to put you off exploring its towns and cities or embarking on more vigorous activities like hiking, biking, or water sports.

Incredible scenery

With picturesque ports, stunning natural landscapes, beautiful cities, and hundreds of pretty islands, there is a view to remember everywhere you look in Croatia. While many of us are looking for a spot to relax anywhere in the sun that isn’t our back gardens, having a scenic vista to admire while you sip on a cold beverage makes things that much more idyllic. Thanks to Croatia’s rich history, you find yourself among ancient ruins and stunning castles all set against the backdrop of a dramatic coastline bathed in sunshine, with charming, red-roofed houses completing a picture that you just can’t get back home.

Lots of activities

While you would be well within your rights to spend a holiday in Croatia just relaxing on the beach or by the pool, the country has so much more to offer. There is a treasure trove of majestic historical sites to explore, including the best-preserved Roman palace in the world in Split. Speaking of Split, it’s the second-largest city in Croatia, is a visual delight, and a fascinating port to explore.

Further inland you will find rustic vineyards, beautiful nature walks and even more site-seeing. Croatia is also known for being Europe’s best destination for music festivals and is a popular filming location, including for the show Game of Thrones, including the city of Meereen which was shot in Klis just outside of Split.

Combine all of this with a plethora of water sports to enjoy in its crystal-clear waters, there is more than enough to keep you entertained.

We truly believe Croatia is a holiday destination that should be championed, and we are not surprised that its popularity continues to soar.
