Planning a loved up escape for two? Croatia is a great choice thanks to its beaches, culture and fantastic climate, but where is the best place to stay in Croatia for young couples? Keep reading for some romantic suggestions.
Probably the best place to stay in Croatia for couples, Dubrovnik has all the ingredients needed for the perfect romantic getaway. Charming streets for strolling down hand in hand – check. Beautiful Adriatic backdrops for all your holiday photos – check. Incredible food waiting to be enjoyed in atmospheric restaurants – check. Up the romance levels by taking advantage of Piknik Dubrovnik, which provides you with a gourmet hamper and insider tips on the best places to eat it, or take a kayaking trip to the hidden cove on Lokrum island.
Head to the island of Vis, get yourself across to the smaller island of Biševo, and you’ll find a wonderfully secluded beach for a romantic afternoon soaking up the rays or paddling in the sea. Porat beach is sandy and bordered by pine trees (ideal when you need to get out of the sun), so it’s the perfect place to escape to with your beloved. It’s been recognised as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and it’s easy to get to from Komiža on Vis if you want to base yourself there.
If you and your loved one fancy a bit more glitz and glamour when you’re away on holiday, another Croatian island fits the bill perfectly. The party town of Hvar, on the island of the same name, attracts party-lovers and celebrities from across the globe, and it’s one of the best places to stay in Croatia for young couples thanks to its world-renowned nightlife. If you fancy sipping sophisticated cocktails in upmarket bars, Hvar is the place for you – but there’s a lot more to this island than its nightclubs. It’s home to no fewer than five UNESCO World Heritage Sites when you fancy some culture, and you can head out of town to some beautiful beaches if you just want to soak up the sun.
For a quieter and more sophisticated romantic break, you can’t do much better than Rovinj. Situated on the Istrian coast, its colourful houses are a photographer’s dream and you can spend your days wandering the meandering cobbled streets of its old town. Occupying what was once an island (it was only connected to the mainland in 1763), it’s easy to explore on foot and you’ll find plenty of watering holes to stop at along the way. If you see oysters on the menu they’ll probably have come from Lim Fjord, twenty minutes away. They’re an aphrodisiac, so go on – treat yourself!
