Ready for a family-friendly beach holiday? Shuttle Direct recommends the beaches of Zadar, and offers great airport transfers, too!
"Mom, Dad, I’m boooored!" When it comes to stressed out parents, a lazy day on the beach is often just what the doctor ordered. But – as most parents know – this seemingly idyllic holiday can quickly turn into your worst nightmare if there’s nothing to keep the kids entertained...apart from whining and pestering you, of course. Luckily, the scenic beaches of Croatia’s Zadar are so much more than places to read a book and bask in the sun. For a holiday that will delight the whole family, it’s time to pack your swimsuits and explore the beautiful coastline of Zadar.
Relaxation and Adventure All-In-One
If you’re ready to jet off to your family-friendly getaway, Zadar’s following two beaches are guaranteed to make your holiday a unanimous success:
Kolovare Beach: With its Blue Flag award, which celebrates the purity of its clear-blue water, this beach is an all-time family favourite. Kolovare is not only conveniently close to the city centre, but also sports a tranquil pine forest, a pebbly waterfront, and a parade of delicious restaurants and cafes. If you and your children are ready for an athletic adventure, don’t forget to take advantage of Kolovare’s paddle boats, jet-skis, diving, and windsurfing equipment, which can be rented upon arrival. For more fun in the sun, there’s even a playground, beach volleyball courts, and a trampoline. At the end of a perfect beach day, don’t forget to make use of the facility’s outdoor showers and changing rooms.
Borik Beach: Worried because your children can’t swim yet? Just four kilometres from Zadar’s city centre, you’ll find Borik Beach, whose shallow waterfront is perfectly safe for young children and parents to splash around in. Along with enjoying beach games and organised water sports (such as parasailing!), Borik’s associated hotel, the Falkensteiner Resort, has plenty of pools and water slides to keep the kids entertained while you tan on a beach chair. The showers and changing rooms are also at your disposal.
How to Get There
Just like the rest of your holiday, flying to Zadar will be easy and breezy. With airlines such as Ryanair, it’s possible to book a nonstop flight from London Stansted to Zadar Airport, and be ready for some family fun in just two and a half hours.
If you’re considering trying out pre-booking Zadar airport taxi services, good thinking: long airport queues and crowded public transportation are stressful, especially if you’re travelling with children. Instead, why not book with Shuttle Direct, whose shared and private rides offer door-to-door service? Upon your arrival at the airport, simply meet your driver at a designated spot, and you’ll be on your way to your hotel. When you pre-book a ride on Shuttle Direct’s website, there’s no stress and no wait.
