We have mentioned that Vodice is a very popular seaside resort, attracting tourists and holiday makers in their thousands.
And rightfully so; it has glorious weather, warm, crystal clear waters, quite literally hundreds of restaurants and bars and within the surrounding areas, plenty to keep you and the kids occupied for day trips and sightseeing tours if you fancy a break from the beach.
The locals are all majorly friendly, welcoming and generous, speaking many languages, including English, to ensure all your requirements are met and that you do indeed have the best break in the sun you could possibly want.
In the evening the entire promenade is packed with holiday makers strolling around, looking at menus, buying ice creams or just enjoying the atmosphere. We've been here for over two weeks now and in all that time and with this number of people around, we have yet to witness one argument or notice any display of violence.
I have repeatedly mentioned the prices here and how far your pound will stretch, whether it's in the local tavernas or in the markets and both the food and drink are of the finest quality.
So, whilst we have the more obvious beach destinations for family summer breaks such as Spain, Greece and Turkey (and they are no less worthy) why not try somewhere a little closer to home and give Vodice/Croatia a try?
