The fortunes of Tisno – which was, until recently, a sleepy fishing village – were forever transformed by the arrival of Garden Festival, which kicked off Croatia’s festival scene more than a decade ago. Today, there are several major international festivals in Tisno, taking place in a natural amphitheatre with its own private bay, a 10-minute climb from town.
Tisno holidays are all about sunset boat parties, fabulous scenery and late-night hedonism. This relaxed, undemanding town is spread across two sides of a bridge connecting the island of Murter to the mainland. Nearby, the epic scenery of Kornati, an otherworldly archipelago, and the green cascading waterfalls of Krka make fantastic day trips. What’s more, the festival action is mostly contained within the Garden Resort site, so if you don’t fancy a weekend of Ibiza-style partying, holidays to Tisno can be as peaceful and relaxed as you like.
