Choosing a location that suits both of you as a couple can sometimes be tricky, but Croatia with its diversity, culture and romantic surroundings is bound to suit you both. Whether you want to relax and unwind or seek new adventures, Croatia has it all to offer and more besides.
A honeymoon in Croatia offers the newly married couple plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind. Coming from South Africa you could be exploring this fantastic country in just over 17 hours. Hire a car and enjoy the beautiful rugged coast with its plethora of quaint fishing villages and picturesque towns. Further south Dalmatia is awash with the vibrant colours and fragrances of the Mediterranean, and has plenty of long beaches, pine woods and ancient towns to explore. You simply have to visit Dubrovnik with its Old town and perfectly preserved City walls. If you're visiting in the Summer the world renowned Summer Festival with its theatre, music and dance performances, is superb. Whatever you choose to do, your time in Croatia will be unforgettable.
When to go:
– May to September sees the warmest and the best weather but also attracts the crowds. Spring and Autumn can be good times to visit and the winter is good if you want to ski.
– Multiple carriers operate between South Africa and Croatia. Lufthansa fly from Johannesburg, stopping at Frankfurt and Dusseldorf on the way to Dubrovnik. Flight time is 17½ hours with connections.
