The small seaside town of Cavtat in Croatia was recently nominated for a 2019 Best European Destination Award – highly deserving, but I had this weird desire that it not win. Cavtat feels like our little secret, this magical, breath-takingly gorgeous town that was blissful in its lack of tourist crowds. Thankfully it was beaten by Budapest and came in a measly 8th.
We spent 10 days in Cavtat with our 2 daughters (age 3 and 6 at the time) and my mom and stepdad, who had been there before. This little town far exceeded my expectations and made for the perfect multi-generational family destination.
So what’s so special about Cavtat?
