Being a famous tourist destination among Europeans and Americans, Croatia is open for tourism in 2020, thanks to the good epidemiological situation after the coronavirus pandemic. Many visitors have already arrived on the Croatian coast, and they are enjoying their vacation this year.

I decided to visit a few coastal Croatian destinations to check if visitors are having a good time.

Split tourism in 2020

In 2019. Split was visited by thousands of tourists all over the world. Many young party animals enjoyed Ultra Europe Festival, featuring the most famous world DJs. However, Ultra Europe 2020 and all other popular festivals and events are postponed for 2021.

The lack of public gatherings does not mean Split should be skipped in 2020. On the contrary, those people who like a more intimate travel experience are enjoying Split more than before. Beaches are not crowded, and people can spend time on the coast while maintaining social distance to stay safe and healthy.

A number of visitors in Split is 50 - 60% less than in the same period last year. There’s no classic nightlife we’re used to, but people in smaller groups still go out and have a good time during the night hours.

I believe all those visitors who are not looking for crowded events and festivals may have a good time in Split in 2020.

Brela and Baska Voda are known to be top family vacation spots in south Croatia. In 2020, these small charming coastal towns are not missing visitors. According to my estimation, the number of tourists is reduced up to 40%, which is a great fact, because social distance can be maintained easily.

If you are looking for a lively beach destination in 2020, Baska Voda or Brela will not disappoint you for sure.

Just like in other places in Croatia, all the festivals on beach Zrce are cancelled in 2020. This means the party on Zrce will be held in a slightly more intimate atmosphere this year. If that's okay for you, I recommend visiting this famous beach on Pag island, since it's more beautiful than ever due to a reduced number of visitors.

Primosten has lots of visitors in 2020, who enjoy its charming Mediterranean atmosphere and pebble beaches for which the town is known all around the world. Just like in other destinations, the number of visitors is reduced up to 50%, which contributes to safety and social distance.
