Zlatni Rat, Island of Brac
With the British summer still in hiding, the need to search out summer sun becomes ever stronger - and where better than the sundrenched Croatian Coastline. Hidden Croatia, the leading specialist tour operator, brings you the most outstanding beaches and diving spots along this rugged and breathtaking coast.
The famous Zlatni Rat or Golden Horn Beach is found on the beautiful island of Brac, the largest island on the Dalmatian coast, famous for its untouched coves, glorious beaches and precious white stone - still mined today and used to build the White House!
This long, gently curving beach has space enough for everyone and is great for families with plenty of activities and water sports. Take full advantage of this beautiful island and stay at the Hotel Kastil
on the harbour at Bol, prices start from £ 482.00 per person per week*.
For 5 star luxury close to the historic town of Split, stay at Le Meridien

Travelling south from the cosmopolitan city of Split down the mountainous Croatian coast will bring you to the pretty little resort towns of the Makarska Riviera. Framed by the magnificent Biokovo mountains, the pine-fringed beaches dotted along this coast are perfect for both relaxation and activity holidays, with a huge range of water sports on hand for all the family.
The 4 star Villa Andrea front directly onto the beach yet is convenient for the small town of Tucepi. Prices from £635.00 per person based on two sharing a standard double room, private transfers and BA flights from Gatwick Pack your goggles for unrivalled diving opportunities in the lush and unspoilt beauty of the Istria peninsula, often dubbed the new Tuscany because of its close proximity to neighbouring Italy.
