The best time to visit Croatia coast
With 250 sunny days in a year and a mild Mediterranean climate, Croatia is a tourist destination throughout the year. The best time of the year to visit Croatia coast is from April to September when the air is full of the fresh scent of citrus fruits, trees, herbs, and the sea gives an invitation for the bathing season. A pleasant sea breeze often blows in the afternoon during this period. The sea temperature, at an average of 21.1°C (70°F) is a refreshing alternative to the air temperature, at an average of 25.6°C (78.1°F), during this period.
