Croatia has a varied climate, with continental climate conditions in the north and Mediterranean ones on the Adriatic coast.
Required clothing: Lightweights with rainwear for summer. Mediumweights for winter with heavier clothing for inland areas.

Climate for the Adriatic coast:

The warmest months are July and August when the air temperature is between 25 C and 35 C ( 77 F - 95 F) and the sea temperature reaches up to 28 C (83 F). The rain is very rare. This is the time when most of the tourists come.

If you're for a quieter time at the beach and not so many tourists, maybe June and September are months for you. They are also very warm months with average temperatures around 25 C (77 F) and the sea surface temps between 20 C and 25 C ( 68 F - 77 F).

Sunbathing and swimming is also possible in April, May and October, but it really depends on the weather and chances are that you'll get more sunshine in the southern Adriatic. In that period expect temperature between 15 C and 25 C ( 59 F - 77 F) and the sea temperature between 16 and 21 C (61 - 70 F). This is a period with more rain and windy days.

The air temperature in winter months is between 5 and 10 C (41-50 F) and the sea temperature is in average 12 C (54 C ).

Local time



Due to its geographic location between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, as well as in the delta of the Una, Kupa, Sava, Drava and Danube river there are great climatic variabilities, and therefore different flora and fauna. The seaside area, i.e. the coastal stretch by the Adriatic embraces the islands, the coast and the lower hinterland as well as two kinds of climate: the continental (in the interior) and the Mediterranean (in the coastal area and on the islands). Mediterranean climate is characterized by hot summers, many sunny days, and mild and rainy winters. For instance the island of Hvar (with an average temperature of 8.7 oC in January) has 2,718 hours of sunshine a year, Dubrovnik has 2,584. As a comparison, Nice has 2,706 sunny hours. The sea temperature in summer reaches up to 28C.
