If you are a fan of Adriatic turquoise sea, Croatia is one of the most attractive places coasted to Adriatic sea. There are many islands to discover in Croatia and Dalmatian coasts offering you a unique vacation experience
Split (Aspalatos, Spalatum, Spljet, Split… as its name changed from the days of Ancient Greece until today), is the second largest city in Croatia and the heart of the Dalmatia region. The old town is built around a sheltered harbour, on the south side of a high peninsula sheltered from the open sea by many islands. Ferries to these islands are constantly coming and going. The entire west end of the peninsula is a vast wooded mountain park, while industry, shipyards, limestone quarries and the ugly commercial/military port are mercifully far away on the north side of the peninsula. High coastal mountains set against the blue Adriatic provide a striking frame to the scene.
It is a town with a unique political and cultural history, with a worldwide famous monumental heritage and an extraordinary beauty (included in the UNESCO register of the World Cultural Heritage). It is one of the most attractive and the worldwide best known cities of the Mediterranean. Marina Dubrovnik is situated in the locality of Komolac in the inner part of Rijeka dubrovačka, approximately 4 km from the entry to the port of Gruž.
Pula or Pola is the largest city in Istria County, Croatia and the eighth largest city in the country, situated at the southern tip of the Istria peninsula, with a population of 57,460 in 2011. As the rest of the region, it is famous for its mild climate, smooth sea, and untouched nature. The city has a long tradition of winemaking, fishing, shipbuilding, and tourism. It has also been Istria's administrative centre since ancient Roman times.
Mali Lošinj is a town and municipality in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, on the island of Lošinj, in western Croatia. The favourable climatic conditions, the construction of hotels and resorts, foresting and maintenance of beaches have led to an immense development of tourism. The village is located in the most protected part of the Losinj bay. The town lies mostly on the eastern, sunny side of the island.
Ist is one of the islands of the Zadar archipelago and it is situated north of the island Molat. It is connected with the mainland with the ferry lines via Zadar. A small marina makes Ist one of the most popular destinations of navigation experts. On the island there are mostly sandy beaches, and we recommend Ist to all those who want to spend a peaceful, private vacation enjoying nature.
Madly popular, Rab (Arbe in Italian) has some of the most diverse landscapes in the Kvarner region, leading to its declaration as a Geopark in 2008. The more densely populated southwest coast has pine forests and beaches, while the northeast coast is a windswept region with few settlements, high cliffs and a barren look. In the interior, fertile land is protected from cold winds by mountains, allowing the cultivation of olives, grapes and vegetables. The Lopar Peninsula offers the best sandy beaches.
Many of the Croatia’s best diving resorts are located around Brac Island, but we love Rt Osar, a couple of miles away from the beautiful ancient town of Osar. The location makes for a very interesting diving site indeed, with its underwater cliffs and amazing array of fish, sponges and algae, and is suitable for both beginners and advanced divers alike.
