- Hillside olive farm on a Dalmatian island
- Peaceful and remote location
Natural camping among nature and on a hillside olive farm on a Croatian island… isn't this simply splendid.
The appropriately named Iz Campsite is on the Croatian Dalmatian island of Iž, an isle of wildlife and sublime beaches, blue bays and spectacular scenery day and night; this is galatically good stargazing land too.
The Iž owners are firm advocates of natural camping, using renewable energy, solar-powered electricity and tanked water, all on their simple but spectacularly scenic site among an olive tree orchard. The basic facilities include a small campers' kitchen for cooking, showers and toilets, and a washing-up area. Small barbecues are allowed in designated areas.
Restaurant, small cafés and a supermarket are in the local village a ten-minute walk away; the nearest major city is Zadar, an hour's ferry ride away.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Small (11-25 pitches)
Iž is rightly popular with tourists from both Croatia and further afield for its spectacular beaches and clean clear waters, along with handsome bays for snorkelling and other watersports.
Walking and cycling the less than 18 square kilometres of the island's span are also top picks: take the hilly hiking paths to the surrounding vilages or to the peaks with smashing views over the bays below, dotted with tiny islands (most reachable by ferry if you fancy exploring).
An hour by ferry will take you to Zadar, the spectacular and ancient coastal city that's the oldest continually inhabited one in the country. Among its many fab old sights to see are the Venetian and Roman ruins of its Old Town, the Roman forum, the eleventh century convent St Mary's, the Venetian gates and the twelfth century cathedral: a trip to this town is very much a must.
