Following the guests’ challenges and needs, the campsite offer is at an envious level – mobile homes, glamping tents, swimming pools, water parks, animation and wellness centres. As from the year 2016, Croatia has been a proud host to the first 5-star campsite. The tradition of camping in Croatia itself has lasted over 40 years and, during that period, following all the challenges, it has developed into a recognisable camping destination.
