Beachclub holidays to Croatia

Renowned for its natural beauty, crystal clear water, fantastic food and wines and an abundance of historic sites, there’s plenty to love about Croatia and it's great to be back with here with a new beachclub for 2017.

 

You’ll find Alana Beachclub in a beautiful spot on a private beach at the foot of the towering peaks of the Paklenica National Park. Covering 95 sq km, the park offers plenty of opportunity for walking, trekking and rock climbing alongside beautiful shaded paths and rushing streams. While the surrounding countryside has some lovely, untouched mountain bike trails.


The shimmering crystal clear water of the Adriatic is the perfect playground for watersports with windsurfing, dinghy sailing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, water skiing and wakeboarding all included on holidays to Alana Beachclub.

When to go

The coastline of Croatia has a lovely, sunny climate throughout the summer months. You should expect to see the sunshine for around 10-12 hours per day with temperatures in the mid to high 20s, reaching into the 30s in July and August.  

You’re never far from the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic, diving in is the perfect way to cool off and in the mountains of the Paklenica National Park, there’s streams and natural plunge pools for a refreshing dip. 
 

Culture

Croatia is known for its picture perfect towns, breath taking natural beauty, tons of history and stunning architecture. It’s home to many World Heritage Sites, one of the best known is Diocletian’s Palace in the heart of Split.

The Palace, hailing from the Roman Era is 30,000 m2 in size and one of the main draws of Split. Split itself is the second largest city along the coastal region of Croatia and is a buzzing and lively town; worth a day and a night exploring, if you want to visit a taxi can be arranged from Alana Beachclub (approx. 1 hour 45 minutes).


Another city worth exploring is Zadar, known for the Roman and Venetian ruins of it's old town and modern culture taking the form of the Sea Organ and Sun Salutation installations on the waterfront, an intriguing display of sound and light.

Eating like a local

Being so close to Italy, there’s a strong Italian influence to the food of Croatia, you’ll find at least one excellent pizzeria in most Croatian towns.  However, there’s much more to the food than pizza, you’ll find lots of fish and seafood in coastal areas. Fish is generally served simply grilled; you’ll also see lots of octopus salad and black risotto – made using the black ink from squid, much tastier than it sounds.

If you’re not a fan of fish or seafood, there’s plenty of meat dishes to choose from, again the meat is simply prepared and grilled or baked over open wood fires or charcoal bbq’s. To wash down your meal, you must try the Croatia wines; it’s an industry that is positively blooming with family run vineyards producing some excellent wines.
