A beautiful beach on Brac in southern Croatia

The best time to travel to Croatia

Croatia’s coast and islands enjoy hot, dry, sunny summers and mild, moderately wet winters. The peak summer months of July and August attract the most visitors with blissfully hot days and ideal water temperatures for swimming. May and September are great months to visit with warm temperatures and sunny weather, though fewer crowds. The seas are still relatively warm so swimming is still an option. Winters are much cooler and wetter though still pleasant enough.

 

The interior of the country experiences a more extreme version of the coast’s climate with cold winters and sweltering hot summers. Snow is likely during the winter months and the peak summer months of July and August often reach the mid 30s. The milder day time temperatures of May and June make it a great time for outdoor activities in Croatia. Our cruises operate during the Croatian summer, when temperatures are generally high (particularly from June through September), so pack sunscreen and a hat, as the sun can be strong.
