With a sweep of beach, fairy tale views and big-sister cities nearby, Igrane holidays are Croatia's way of telling you to enjoy yourself.

Sleepy seaside sights

If you're partial to fishing villages with vistas, you’re in the right place. Here on the Dalmatian Coast on the southern shore of Croatia, Igrane chills out with its toes in the Adriatic Sea and the Biokovo Mountains at its back. Makarska Riviera getaways don’t get much more relaxed.

A legendary history

Don’t be fooled by Igrane’s low-key lifestyle – its got mystery in its history. Word has it that King Arthur’s mother was born here, and the locals love the legend. Catch historic reenactments and parades through town in honour of the King of Camelot.

Beachy fun

Igrane's beach stretches for a kilometre and a half, with activities for all. Pack for a picnic on the pebbles or simply soak up the sun on the shingled shore. For ocean action, paddle out into the shallows or get wet on a jet-ski.

Cool neighbours

If you're feeling adventurous, you're in luck – Igrane's in a prime position for exploring the rest of the riviera. Crank up the swank at elegant eateries and posh beach bars on ritzy Hvar island, just 40 minutes away by ferry, or hit the tiles for a night out in the clubs of nearby Makarska.
