Family holidays in Croatia

There’s nothing better than finding an ideal destination that keeps all the family happy on holiday. And we think Croatia is the one. The country’s natural beauty, crystal clear waters and fantastic food always score highly on a wishlist for family holidays to Croatia. The weather makes an active family holiday all the better, with coastal breezes creating the perfect playground on the Adriatic for watersports. 

With our Alana Beachclub sitting right on the doorstep of one of Croatia’s beautiful national parks, nature lovers of all ages can get out in the wilderness and explore. With over 250 species of birds in the park - including the rare and majestic golden eagle, there are plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife on route.

Enjoying family holidays in Croatia

Active little ones will be kept busy with sports and activities while you unwind - so no need to worry about them getting bored. Our inclusive Neilson run kids’ clubs keep children from 2 to 17 years on the go. There’s a pool for little ones and a play area that they’ll love.

With the younger family members enjoying their holiday in Croatia, you’re free to hit the water, take to the courts or even scale our climbing wall. The beach at the Alana Beachclub has huge stretches of open water to enjoy. With few other sailors around, you can learn the ropes - or perfect your skills in style. In the afternoons a nice cross-shore breeze picks up - great conditions for windsurfers and dinghy sailors! No need to worry about equipment either - we provide everything you need to enjoy your chosen sport. 

Back on dry land, our Neilson coaches will put you through your paces on the tennis courts or you can push your limits in one of our many fitness classes. With mountain biking and rock climbing also on the menu, there’s almost too much to try in one family holiday!

Where to stay on a family holiday to Croatia

For a family holiday in Croatia to really hit the mark, a great location is key. And our Alana Beachclub is ideally situated to make the most of the sights and sounds of this beautiful country. To complement the stunning surroundings, all rooms have been given a stylish, contemporary feel. There’s also a heated swimming pool and beach bar - perfect for unwinding after a day on the water. Set in a beautiful location on the Adriatic coast - the towering peaks of the Paklenica National Park make an eye-catching backdrop for those all-important holiday snaps.

The pebble beach is the starting point for watersports - taking you out into the large bay with wind conditions to suit beginners and intermediates. Onshore, the activities are plentiful and, as always, our friendly Neilson childcare team are there to look after smaller members of the family. Full days of fun will keep young minds busy. With sports and activities specifically tailored to age groups, they’ll be able to make friends while trying out everything from sailing and kayaking to treasure and pool games.
