Beaches and caves are possibly what makes up the ideal family holiday for parents traveling with primary school children. This tender age of traveler is almost always open to adventure, but they also need some down home comforts along the way to feel at ease. That is why Claie Wilson, writer for the Sun, is raving about Istria in Croatia.
According to Wilson, the region is bursting with olive-grove-lined roads, vineyards and even a variety of caves, making exploration a must in the area. Not only that, Croatia is a culinary mecca and the country is full of options when it comes to dining and an abundance of selections for both kids and adults.
The place is also steeped in history and rich culture that make exploring both fun and educational for the entire family.
Accommodation is easily found as well as inexpensive and there are also bouncy castles, bike rentals and 3 kilometers of beach — as well as Wi-Fi access — to be enjoyed.
