CROATIA: MUST SEE PLACES

TOP 3:

    • Plitvice National Park (UNESCO Site)
    • Dubrovnik Old Town (UNESCO Site)
    • Hvar

RELAX:

  1. HVAR – swim, dine, drink or party. Great for young people or couples.
  2. SPLIT – swim, walk, dine at waterfront restaurants, explore the old town.
  3. OMIS – great place to swim and walk throughout the town.
  4. PUCISCA – beautiful swimming beaches and spectacular white marble houses and small old town.
  5. KORCULA – sleepy coastal hideaway perfect for a romantic couples retreat.
  6. Winery: STRAI GRAD (near Hvar) – reminds me of being in Outback Australia or even Lombok in Indonesia. Indulge in an authentically home cooked Croatian meal whilst sampling fine wines, all  on a beautiful rustic farm setting.

  • KRKA NATIONAL PARK

  • My fav: sail around in the summertime to a select handful of islands and truly discover the magic that Croatia has to offer.

    Loved Croatia! Sailed with Sail Croatia last September and it is a place I will definitely return to! A stand out for me was zip lining in the mountains near Omis- challenged myself as I’m scared of heights but it was totally worth it! Love all your suggestions here, bringing back so many memories of my trip!
