The highest sea temperatures in Croatia are during the summer month of August. However, you can swim between June and September in Croatia. The swimming season typically opens during the warmer days in May, if the air temperatures reach the summer level.
In June, though, warms up at a slower rate so for many tourists it’s still too cold at 17-18 degrees. But the local population typically have no problems with that. They also have a desire to show their bravery to everyone by going into somewhat colder water..
In June, the sea temperatures climb above 20 degrees and become nice for swimming. In July, they climb a couple more degrees higher on average.
