With clear azure blue water, over one thousand islands, inlets and reefs, and a stunning, never ending coastline, Croatia is fast becoming one of the most popular and stand out destinations in the Mediterranean. Just 66 of the 1800 islands along the coast are inhabited, offering huge variety away from the bustling and vibrant towns like Hvar and Korcula – steeped in history and tradition, to the truly remote and tranquil Cornati Islands – a vast archipelago of untouched and isolated islands.
The perfect way to relax and get away from it all. Incorporating culture, food and nightlife, Croatia’s buzzing and vibrant atmosphere offers something for everyone. Whether swimming off one of its nearby islands and beaches, seeing the sun come up at its famous Carpe Diem club, visiting vineyards or sky diving, Croatia’s great getaway reputation is well deserved. Taking in the UNESCO world heritage site of Dubrovnik, travelling upstream from Sibenik to discover the spectacular waterfalls at Krka, or island hopping up the coast from Miljet as far as Italy, Croatia has much to offer.
The second-largest city in Croatia, Split (Spalato in Italian) is a great place to see Dalmatian life as it’s really lived. Always buzzing, this exuberant city has just the right balance of tradition and modernity. Step inside Diocletian’s Palace (a Unesco World Heritage site and one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments) and you’ll see dozens of bars, restaurants and shops thriving amid the atmospheric old walls where Split life has been going on for thousands of years. To top it off, Split has a unique setting. Its dramatic coastal mountains act as the perfect backdrop to the turquoise waters of the Adriatic. You’ll get a chance to appreciate this gorgeous cityscape when making a ferry journey to or from the city.
Dubrovnik has long been a celebrated seaside city, known worldwide for its beauty and charm. It is a gorgeous walled city that is entered through an ancient and impressive gateway. Through the gateway is an immaculate medieval city, with the narrow, winding alleys, terraced cafes and restaurants, flowered stairways, ancient streets and magnificent churches that are beautifully maintained.
