Weather

Great weather Pleasant 32 degrees with a cool breeze off the sea. Evenings are wonderful.

Holiday

Young visitor population makes it an interesting place unlike Dubrovnik which has old people pouring off cruise ships.
Plenty of nik naks to spend money on.
The people are very friendly and a partying type atmosphere is prevalent.
We stayed in Hotel Osejava which gets you away from the louder areas. Swimming is a little more private too.

Places Recommended

The sea for a swim. The beaches are horrid with no sand, just pebble to boulder size rocks. The temperate clear water makes up for the weird beaches.

Weather

Mid July 2009 was like an oven. 28C to around 35C. The evenings are HOT. The water temperature is around 20 to 23C which is warm.

Holiday

Different!! The people are friendly, although they could be a little more proactive. It is a developing country and the tourist beaches have loads of little stalls selling :whatnot". Still, great fun.

Croatia is not the cheapest of places but the laid back style makes up for it.

In fact we're off to there again mid August 2009 because we liked it that much.

DO NOT book a hotel. Just get there and find a private home that rents out rooms or studios. Ther are loads of them and cost around 25/30euros for a double room. We did (and I am a fussy one!) and ended up enjoying the personal hospitality that a hotel lacks when discovering new places. It was no 5 star but definately not a "disastar". Night life is not too great but the little bars in the harbour are of Makarska will provide some form of entertainment. It is not what Makarska is about. Try a drive to the Ranch in the hills above Makarska.

Places Recommended

Dubrovnik is a must. More expensive than Makarska but well worth the drive (couple of hours along the coast or try the Toll road to cut travel time). Split is an hour away along the coast with lovely little coves along the coast. My advice is to stay in Makarska as your mid point. The islands of Brac and Hvar are well worth the 20euro pp day trip fee. Brac has an interesting beach. A quick GOOGLE search will give you a heads up on its beach. Most of the beaches along the Dalmatian cost are pebble beaches 9not my favourite). Look beyond that and ENJOY!
