Where should you go if you want your children to feel good and enjoy the holiday?
It is still summer and sunshine, so what could be more delightful for a child than a wading into the sea? Rab Island has a beach that is ideal for families with children. “Paradise Beach” is located in the resort of Saint Marino, near Lopar. After all the info about the rocky beaches in Croatia, you will be surprised to discover an enormous stretch covered by the finest sand, clear warm water and low depth for a great distance from the shore and a lot of temptations: expensive boats, slides, aqua park (located right by the sea), trampolines, water games. Saint Marino Camping is huge and yet, in late August, it is still full.
the prices vary depending on where you choose to settle your “headquarters”, the most expensive being near the beach, where you can adjust your camp right on the sand, while remaining pleasantly in the shade of pine trees and each plot has its own sink. There are generally good conditions, you will find shade under the old trees, shops, restaurants, ice cream, cars, and everything that can make a child happy. The minuses can be deduced from what we have stated above: for adults, the shallow water can make you bored with walking till you manage to reach a depth where you can swim, and the various temptations can make your child happy or unhappy, depending on your budget and how each parent decides what their offspring will do for fun. For example, one single slide costs 4 kuna, while 5 minutes of trampolining cost 20 kuna. If you go there, come prepared with tools for building the most beautiful sand castles.
The rocky beaches with pebbles are not neglected either. If we as adults we have preferred deeper water clarity and color and surreal blue water, a child will always find pleasure in playing with stones rounded by water, or different colors and compositions. If you’re sitting on the beaches so be prepared to go home a part of landfill and gravel stones beware of frogs.
By the sea, the Plitvice National Park with its beautiful turquoise lakes and waterfalls are also worth a visit. Many spectacular cascades, and emerald lakes, fish that crowd curious to the shore, and caves can all be reason enough for delight to a child. The landscape is unique and reflects the way the 16 lakes have formed. From the main entrance you can choose several paths, depending on the time available and your desire to walk.
Wooden footbridges that fit naturally into the landscape will take you over the lakes and close to the spectacular waterfalls and you almost sense that you have been touched by divine grace and that you can walk on water. Nature is respected everywhere, directional signs are in turn made of wood and on the route there are only restaurants at the entrance. So take with you sandwiches and water, but pick up the trash! However, if you are too tired to walk back, there are buses that can transport visitors to the outputs.
So Croatia is a perfect place to go with the entire family!
