M e r A d r i a  is the first Croatian mermaid retreat & mini-convention with a cause, benefitting the Adriatic Sea and its marine life.

Croatia  (local name: Hrvatska)  is the land of a 1000 islands with centuries of rich history and breathtaking  nature, as well as home to a small river town with  mermaids on its crest – which is where MerAdria’s creatrice SireNea hails from!

Join us in savoring the fragrant air and crystal clear sea full of life as you experience our famous hospitality and Mediterranean soul food.

Immerse yourself in the real-life fantasy world of MerAdria, an exclusive eco-paradise on a new Croatian island each year!

Néa Dune is Croatia’s first mermaid (SireNea) for the past decade, and hopes to change that! On land she is a professional multilingual actress, creature performer, model/covergirl and multi-faceted creative, splitting time between Europe and USA. As a volunteer and humanitarian for the majority of her life, environmental work is a cause extremely dear to Néa's heart.

She conceived MerAdria in the heat of the pandemic lockdown and strives for it to become an international oasis for merfolk lovers, joining forces with her fellow Balkan mers from Slovenia, and to raise awareness on keeping their beautiful native Adriatic Sea clean and safe!
