A soothing blend of seascapes and Dalmatian culture, holidays to Zaton Mali have low-key getaways on lock.

Quiet little village

Framed by pine-covered hills and a blue bay, the village of Zaton Mali's located in southern Croatia, just a 20-minute drive from Dubrovnik. It's as quiet and peaceful as can be – and its pine-covered hills and pretty bay look like they're straight out of a storybook.

Pebbly spot

Just a 20-minute walk from Zaton Mali, you'll find its neighbouring village, Zaton Veliki. Here, there's a pebbly shore with crystal-clear waters that's perfect for paddling with kids. When you need to refuel after a hard day of lounging around, you won't have to walk far to get to the eateries by the harbour, either. Prepare your taste buds – the restaurants here are known for putting on a scrummy spread of fresh seafood.

Drop in on Dubrovnik

For a change of pace, you can reach the bustling city of Dubrovnik in 20 minutes by car. With Medieval monasteries, lively bars and panoramic views over the water, this 'Adriatic pearl' is definitely worth a visit – that's what the makers of Game of Thrones thought, at least.
