Where we go in Croatia
Dubrovnik and Islands
This is one of the Med’s best-looking spots. Tucked right down in the south-eastern tip of Croatia, the coastline is dotted with countless pebbly beaches, all backed by pine-packed hills, olive groves and vineyards.
The Istrian Riviera marks the most northerly point of the Croatian coast. It’s a wedge-shaped peninsula, so there are loads of pine-backed beaches and rugged coves to go around. History-wise, everyone from the Romans to the Venetians marched through this neck of the woods, loading towns with amphitheatres and terracotta-topped old towns along the way. And if you peer across the Adriatic Sea, you’ll see where they came from – Italy is just across the water.
Dalmatian Coast and Islands
The beach-spotted Dalmatian Coast unravels along Croatia’s western edge. The port city of Split kicks things off in the north. From here, the coastline wiggles its way south, ticking off pretty seaside towns like Brela, Tucepi and Zivogosce along the way. And the islands just offshore are made for daytripping.
