5 Reasons to Go On a Retreat in Croatia in 2024

Are you craving an escape filled with sunshine, the sea, incredible food, and self-discovery? Look no further than a women’s retreat in Croatia

From stunning beaches and endless outdoor recreation to medieval walled cities and an ‘untapped’ wine culture, Croatia truly offers something for everyone. In this unparalleled setting, you’ll be able to fully relax and unplug, coming away feeling rejuvenated. 

A retreat in Croatia holds a special sort of magic. With the vast diversity in activities, this country is especially well-suited to group travel. Spend some quality time with everyone as a group, plus enjoy plenty of downtime to explore on your own and recharge your own batteries.

If you still need some convincing, here are six compelling reasons you should join us on this adventure of a lifetime in Croatia. 

1. Incredible Beaches

Croatia is home to some of the most breathtakingly beautiful beaches in Europe, with crystal-clear waters and picturesque rugged coastlines hugging the Adriatic Sea. The beaches here are unlike anywhere else—they’re mostly smooth pebble, rather than sand, and they have little commercial development. Even at the most popular beaches, you’ll typically find just a handful of restaurants and shops, but plenty of space to lay claim to your own tranquil slice of sand. 

From the famous Zlatni Rat Beach to countless hidden gems off the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia's beaches offer infinite relaxation and exploration. Speaking of the Dalmatian Coast, one of the highlights on our retreat to Croatia is blissfully uncrowded Korčula Island

No matter how you visit, make sure to spend some time sailing around Croatia. You’ll get a different perspective of the postcard-perfect beaches, plus glide right over those famously clear azure waters. 

2. Stunning Natural Beauty

If you’ve seen even just a few pictures of Croatia, you know it’s an absolute paradise for nature lovers. From cascading waterfalls to volcanic isles and lush forests, the country's diverse landscapes will leave you in awe, providing the perfect backdrop for self-reflection and mindfulness.

Explore one (or several!) of its eight national parks during your retreat in Croatia, whether it’s the enchanting lakes of Plitvice or hiking through the rugged terrain of Paklenica National Park. 

3. Fabulously Underrated Wine Destination

While Croatia isn’t nearly as famous as France or Italy when it comes to wine, it certainly holds its own. With over 130 native grape varieties and some of the oldest grapevines in the entire world, Croatian wines offer unique flavors—and an equally unique experience. 

Between vineyard tours, wine tastings, and following the Croatian Wine Trails, you'll discover incredible ancient winemaking techniques. 

4. Dubrovnik – A Destination in its Own Right

No trip to Croatia is complete without visiting Dubrovnik. One of the famous settings for Game of Thrones, this stunning medieval city captivates visitors with its massive fortress-like walls and cobblestone streets. Explore historic Old Town, stroll along the iconic towering walls, and wander aimlessly, taking some of the winding staircases and popping into mysterious hidden alleyways. 

Our women’s retreat in Croatia starts and ends in Dubrovnik, giving you ample time to explore the charming streets, bustling markets, and amazing food scene. 

5. Easy Accessibility

Traveling to many European destinations can be complicated and overwhelming, but thankfully, that is not the case in Croatia. Getting here and getting around the country are easy-breezy, with several major airports (including one in Dubrovnik) and a modern, efficient public transportation infrastructure. 

With direct flights from several major European cities, you can be on Croatia's stunning beaches in no time.
