    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The pebbles of some beaches can be uncomfortable to the feet.
    Many persons use moccasins to walk on the beach and going to water. So, it’s better you pack moccasins, or gymnastics tennis, to warn this case.

    Larger or smaller clothes?

    by matcrazy1 Written Feb 25, 2003

    Miscellaneous: .
    I recommend you to pack larger or... smaller clothes then you used to wear. Why?

    There are at least 2 reasons:
    1. Eating/food in Croatia is delicious and you may catch EA (eating addiction), if you choose not low-fat food be prepared to get a few kilograms/pounds = take larger clothes.

    2. Croatian food is usually low-fat eating (fish, many vegetables/fruits) so be prepared to get off a few kilograms/pounds. And Croatian beaches are a paradise for early morning jogging lovers. Instead you can practice crazy dancing all nights there = take smaller clothes.

    Can you say Hawaiian Tropic?

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Oh my gosh, bring some sunscreen or you will get torched. The whole country feels like it doesn't have an o-zone layer. One day I was baking on some rocks outside of Hvar Town, by the time I woke up I was barely able to move and I had some funny looking handprints on my body. SPF 60!

    Photo Equipment: For photo equiptment, I had a lot of success with a polarizing filter here because of the heavy sun and lightly colored skies. Sunsets are prominent, so a neutral density filter may prove useful too.

    Luggage and bags: Always - bags that be locked.

    If not moving constantly - suitcase or fold bags are good.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Since I was on the coast...even in the summer it was nice to have a jumper/cardigan to wear. Comfortable shoes for walking and low heels for dinner times.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you need certain medications..I suggest come with them. Hours of operations and pharmacias are different all over the world. Come Prepared & stocked. Good to have Tylenol, some band aids, and bug cream. Toiletries - easily available.

    Photo Equipment: I took extra film with me and it saved me time.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Swimsuits (although beaches were topless)your choice. Good to have beach footwear...ie tevas but vendors are there to sell.

    Luggage and bags: If you are going to be there for a while and are catering for yourself it might be an idea to take tinned food with you - tins are very expensive in Croatia.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If travelling in the summer take an umbrella - summer is usually very hot but the cloud bursts are increadible! Winter gets extremely cold so pack your thermals.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Decent pair of walking shoes as there are loads of walks.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: The sun was very hot when we were there in late May, so plenty of suntan lotion needed.

    Miscellaneous: A couple of books to sit on a bench or rock & just let the world pass you by.
