Beautiful islands, mouth-watering dishes, favorable weather, welcoming people, and rich culture and history, are just some of the reasons why millions of people visit Croatia every year.

Whether it’s your first time to this great holiday destination, or your 100th, there’ll always be something that will wow you. And best of all, you can experience the best of Croatia with your whole family at an affordable cost. Continue reading to learn more about the budget and family-friendly side of Croatia.

Family-Friendly Accommodation

Families have a wide range of family of options when it comes to booking accommodation in Croatia. For instance, there are several family-friendly hotels, which offer standard amenities plus private pools, clubs and a variety of sports and activities to ensure that your whole family enjoys their stay in Croatia.

There are also all-inclusive hotels and resorts that offer excellent value for money, particularly for families. At the beach-front Hotel Zorna hotel for example, the price of accommodation includes all beverages (including beer and wine for you and partner), breakfast, lunch, dinner buffets, various activities for children and adults, as well as several connections to Porec. There’s nothing better than knowing beforehand what your holiday will cost.

You should also consider booking private accommodation to help you save money. Many Croatians are renting out their private homes to visitors, so you shouldn’t find a problem getting a suitable private accommodation for your family. With a vacation rental, you’re assured of the much-needed extra space and privacy for your family that a hotel room doesn’t offer. Most likely, you have your own kitchen where you can prepare your own meals with fresh market ingredients.

Countless Activities To Keep Your Whole Family Entertained

The beautiful Croatia is a kid-friendly country, and its stunning beaches are no exception. You’re likely to find families at almost every beach. What’s more, there are several beaches offering additional amenities that appeal to parents for instance, restrooms, first-aid facilities, snack bars etc. For instance, Berulija and Punta Rata beaches in Brela have lifeguards on duty. In addition, Zaton beach in Zadar has playgrounds and sandy shallows, which are perfect for children, as well as sunshades, beach bars and restaurants for your whole family to eat, drink and rest after swimming and sunbathing.

But these aren’t the only activities to entertain you and your kids in Croatia. You can also go cycling along the coast, or go for a horseback ride, or hike through beautiful national parks such as Plitvice Lakes.

Croatia also has a very rich culture and history, so take advantage of your time there to learn about world history and culture with your kids. One of the places you shouldn’t miss is Diocletian’s palace (Split), which is one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Croatia.

Delicious Local Food

Croatia has a wide variety of foods from pastas, pizzas, to sea foods like truffles and black risotto. Kids in this country eat the same foods as adults, so you can be sure to find something on the menu that will appeal to your children. If not, you can always ask their friendly chefs to grill some chicken for your younger ones; they won’t refuse. Your family will also be able to enjoy ice cream from the several ice cream parlors stationed in the coastal towns.

More Affordable Than You Might Think

The best part of Croatia is that it’s more affordable than other Mediterranean holiday destinations. This great country is still not on the euro yet, so you can get most things from massages, excursions to accommodation at an affordable rate. You can check out this article about the average travel costs in Croatia which to get a better image of how much (or should we better say how cheap) the costs are.

Note that everything becomes more expensive in Croatia during the high season, especially in popular destinations such as Dubrovnik and Hvar, so you should consider travelling their before and after the summer season, and venturing away from these tourist hotspots if you want the best deals.

As you can see, it’s possible to experience the best of Croatia with your whole family without breaking the bank. So why not let your next family holiday destination be Croatia; you’ll thank yourself later.
