Exciting adventures & new memories, pure joy with your loved ones… Isn’t that what a family holiday is all about? And the Zadar region is just the right place to make it happen! So, pick your destination wisely and ensure quality time for your family at the seaside in Zadar region.

Petrčane – your top destination near Zadar

A quiet village just outside the bustling city of Zadar is an excellent holiday spot for families. Not only is it just a few minutes away from the city, but amazing places of interest are within easy reach as well. In addition to Zadar, there are other charming historical towns and villages such as Nin and Pag nearby. 

Numerous natural attractions both at sea and on land are also in close proximity, so you can do something out of the ordinary your loved ones will greatly enjoy. For example, let them try rock climbing in the Paklenica National Park, go kayaking along the Zrmanja river or Vrana Lake, and take your family swimming under the waterfall in the Krka National Park. Consider a sailing excursion around the islands in the Zadar archipelago, stop for a swim and snorkel in a secluded cove and have your family adventure at sea.

Petrčane allows you to easily arrange and see it all, without having to plan ahead. Similarly, by choosing the Hotel Pinija on Punta Radman cape, you are practically in a traffic-free zone with lush Mediterranean greenery. And plenty of family activities to choose from.

Beach & pool

Have some water fun all together! Looking for shells, playing ball, snorkeling – there are a number of activities the whole family can enjoy on the beach. And then some. Why not also do water sports, hop on a jet ski or go parasailing as well? 

You can also simply relax with a cocktail by the pool, while your children splash and laugh in the pool. Or you can do both. For example, the sheltered beach with plenty of shade is just a few steps from the pools at the Hotel Pinija.

The beach & pools never get old. Still, mixing it up a little leads to even more fun. Encourage your children to join in workshops and activities led by animation teams such as the Pini Kids Club.

Also, plan activities your whole family can engage in, creating lasting memories every step of the way. See which family member has the sharpest focus in a game of mini golf. Have a fun game of beach volleyball with your tweens and teens. Why not plan a cycling trip in the region, with stops to admire the scenery, to take a cool photo or go for a swim? Hotels such as Pinija offer you rental, so you can opt for a bike ride on the spot. For extra thrill, consider adrenaline parks nearby.
