Last updated on April 3rd, 2023 at 10:15 am

This Women’s Packing List for Croatia in Summer is just what you need if you are planning your Croatian holiday.

Croatia is an amazing destination during the summer. You will be amazed by the clear blue water and the stunning old architecture.

Be sure to try out some snorkeling, take a boat trip and visit some of the epic waterfalls. Read my post on what to do in Split for a week for all the details.

In this packing list for Croatia, I have provided quantities based on a week long trip. You can certainly pack lightly and a carry on case will be plenty of space for all you need. Tweak the quantities where needed based on the length of the trip.

Also don’t forget that most airlines allow a personal item as well as a carry on case so don’t forget to make use of a big handbag or schoolbag/backpack as well as the suitcase if applicable.

Why not explore some more of Europe and check out my Rome, Florence & Venice Itinerary for a week in the lovely Italy.

Go To:

What is the weather like in Croatia in June, July and August?

The weather is best in Croatia from June to September. Along the coast, temperatures will be mid 20s to 30° Celsius. The busiest times in the touristy places like Split and Dubrovnik will be July and August, so if you want to avoid this – June or September is a great time to visit.

What documents are needed?

  • Passport
  • Boarding Pass
  • COVID documents if required at the time – PCR/antigen test results, COVID locator form, Proof of vaccination etc
  • Wallet/Purse (cash and/or card)
  • Reservations (hard copy or on your phone)
  • Check out my trip planner which keeps all your reservations on one place as well as a packing checklist, expense tracker, cost calculator & more

What technology should I bring travelling?

  • Phone
  • Camera (plus equipment if needed)
  • Chargers
  • Portable Charger for when you are out for long days and need a back up
  • Travel Adapter – plug type C or F is used in Croatia, the one with the 2 round pins used in most European countries, read more here.
  • Headphones – listen to music/podcasts on the plane or at the beach
  • Kindle/e-book or normal book for some entertainment
  • Hair straightener/Hair dryer if needed
  • Waterproof phone case – if you will be doing snorkeling, kayaking etc

What to wear in Croatia in Summer?

Start with wearing the bulky items on the plane and leave them out of the carry on. This will allow some extra space in the bag. So, wear the runners, hoody and the jeans on board and let the light items in the case. I usually roll my clothes so they fit well and give me more space.

  • 2 x Swimwear/Bikini
  • 1 x light pyjamas
  • 1 x light rain jacket or Poncho
  • 1 x activewear
  • 3 pairs of shorts to go with multiple outfits
  • 5-7 tops/t-shirts
  • 2-4 dresses/skirts
  • 1 hoody
  • 1 cardigan
  • 1 jeans
  • 7 x Underwear
  • 7 x Socks
  • 2 – 3 bras
  • Hat

What toiletries to pack for the trip?

For the toiletries, be careful that the bottles are under 100ml for the carry on requirements. If not you can transfer them to the travel size bottles. You can buy them on amazon here.

  • Skincare – Moisturisers, face creams, face wash
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Perfume
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Body-wash
  • Make-up/tan
  • Make-up Remover
  • Hairbrush
  • Bobbles/gogos/hair ties
  • Hair clips
  • Dry shampoo
  • Sun cream
  • Razor
  • Feminine hygiene products

What personal items should I bring to Croatia?

I would advise to bring a water bottle so you can fill up at the airport inside security to avoid paying an extortionate price for a bottle of water. As well as this, bring snacks. I learned my lesson after paying €8 for a mangy sandwich in Schiphol airport.

  • Snacks
  • Water Bottle
  • Sunglasses
  • Glasses/Contact lenses
  • Notebook and pen
  • Jewellery
  • Tablets, medicines, vitamins
  • Mosquito repellent

What shoes should I bring to Croatia?

Shoes can take up a lot of space in a suitcase so I would recommend just 2 pairs. Wear the runners or hiking boots on the plane and leave the flip flops in the suitcase.

  • Flip flops/thongs/jandals/sandals
  • Runners
