When to visit Croatia
The natural beauty of the Croatian coastline is highlighted by the mild Mediterranean climate. With more than 2,400 hours of sunshine per year, Croatia has one of the sunniest coastlines in Europe. Summer temperatures can reach 38 °C, while the sea temperature amounts to warm 26 °C. The best period to visit the Croatian coast is between April and October. If you are a fan of rich and diverse nightlife activities and take pleasure in walking through crowded streets, then you should visit Croatia during July and August. These two months are the peak of the summer season. The narrow streets of Dalmatian coastal towns are filled with guests from all over the world and offer a rich programme filled with festivals and cultural events, as well a vibrant club scene....
Those of you who prefer to spend their holidays in a less hectic and more peaceful environment should sail to Croatia in the months preceding the high season (May-June) or in the months following the summer peak (September-October). Peace and tranquility can always be found on secluded islands, isolated bays and charming fishing villages.
