Awash with emerald-hued waters, warm Mediterranean sun and exciting water sport activities, Croatia is the perfect beachside retreat for the adventure of a lifetime.
Pula is a haven for sun-seekers and lovers of water-based activities, as well as groups looking to add a splash of culture and history to their summer trip! Snorkel through glistening waters and discover the treasures of the sea or stay above the surface and try your hand at sea kayaking. Then take a break from the water fun and head into Pula’s labyrinth of Roman architecture or take a catamaran ride to Venice! However you choose to spend your days, in water or on land, a week in Croatia is guaranteed to leave your group smiling from ear to ear!
A fantastic experience for both girls and leaders!Emily Keene, Middlesex East County Guides, Croatia 2017
