Along the beautiful coastline with its many islands and beaches most of the camp-grounds can be found, they come in all shapes and sizes. from large luxury campsites with multiple pools, beaches, restaurants, rental of tents, caravans and cottages to very small campsites located in idyllic nature locations.
The climate in Croatia is perfect for camping. In the springtime it is already warm and sunny, especially along the coast, and there is plenty to do and see. There are many opportunities for water sports, but especially hiking and cycling are becoming increasingly popular and there are more and more well-signposted cycle routes in Croatia. The country has many beautiful nature parks where there is always an information desk with all sorts of information about walking and cycling routes, the unique flora and fauna and other interesting sites to visit in the area. Unfortunately, there are not always campsites in or near these beautiful nature parks, but gradually more and more campsites are build in the interior of Croatia. I’ll keep you posted on that!
