Best Time to Visit:

Shoulder Season: May to October
  • Late spring and early fall is when sea temperatures are pleasant as there’s plenty of sunshine, while the beaches and coves are relatively quiet. May and September are great times to go sailing in Croatia.

  • Onshore, this is the best time to cycle, hike or visit the national parks.

  • Accommodations are also easier to book compared to high season.

High Season: July to August
  • This time is when the Adriatic’s warm waters charm countless visitors and boat parties, medieval fairs, alcohol booze and resorts are filled with yachters.

  • The weather in the afternoons are roasting hot and the lines at attractions are at their longest with accommodation costs rising.

  • Inland, the temperatures are higher but crowds less noticeable, and Zagreb empties as locals head for the coast.

Low Season: November to April
  • The weather can be freezing, and while the coast is milder, it’s still affected by the Bura wind, canceling ferries. Accommodation rates are at their lowest.

  • If you’re here for food and culture, you can still have a fine time. In Zagreb, Christmas markets, hearty stews, and buzzy clubs offer a warmth of their own.
