Where is the best place for water sports in Europe?
Croatia is one of the best places for watersports in Europe, for family activity holidays. With its consistent summer temperatures, affordable exchange rates and many flight routes, this stunning Southern Mediterranean country will certainly tick all the boxes.
A cocktail in hand, holding your favourite book with your toes combing the sand is the idea of a perfect holiday in most people’s minds. But once a parent, that perfect image begins to change. Even more so, if you’re a parent of a turbulent teenager. You can see it as well, can’t you?
What seemed like a great holiday idea, ends up with your teens non-stop staring in their pocket screens. If it’s not the great silence of WiFi, every parent will be all too familiar with the ‘rolling eyes’ and ‘what else is there to do mum’ comments. Sadly, sea and the sunshine don’t guarantee a great holiday! This is the reason why more and more families are now looking for ‘things to do’ first, before booking a destination.
Through our years of experience in creating family adventure holidays with teenagers, we found that water sports offer the perfect solution to keeping everyone active and bored free. It’s also a clever way for parents to be close to their teens, without cramping their style!

After exploring rivers, we recommend moving to the seafront to enjoy our sea based activities like sea kayaking & Standup paddle boarding.

Whenever possible, we always stop to swim and snorkel. If considering a watersports holiday this summer, then kayaking in Croatia is a must-do!
