Essential Croatia travel information
With its coastline and inner mountain region, Croatia, as you can expect, has a dual climate. The coastal areas have typically Mediterranean weather, consisting of hot, dry, sunny days during summer, and relatively mild and sometimes wetter ones in winter.
Winters are obviously cooler, although temperatures never really get below about 5°C/41°F. It is not uncommon for summer weather to stretch out into the Autumn months and especially amongst the coastal towns where you can expect to see a brave soul hit the beach and go swimming.
Sailing in these autumn months though is not advised as the water can get a little choppier. You can access any of the main Croatia cities by air, the main airport is Split, rail or road, and there are plenty of harbours near all points of interest to set sail or moor up your vessel.
