Hey all, so I want to go to Croatia for a week in August. I am just wondering where best to go. I can't so much as its only one week. I live a nice beach and a place to meet fellow backpackers would be best. Any input would be great, thanks guys :)

Maybe try Dubrovnik. There are hostels in the town where you would have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers and beaches nearby :)

Alternatively (depending on your music taste) you could go to Sonus music festival on Pag Island which is end of August. I have been to a few festivals in Croatia and they are super friendly and fun, and you would meet a lot of people!! I had a great time :)

Hey, thanks for the reply. I do love a music festival so that would be cool. I did look at flying in to dub and then doing a couple of trips from there x

I'd say Dubrovnik, half decent beaches, lots of interesting history, walled city you can walk around the ramparts, cable car and nice walks.
