If you're a fan of scenic islands, trophy beaches and top-notch service, holidays to Kolocep will fit the bill perfectly.

Adriatic escape

Famous for its Medieval atmosphere and relaxed culture, Kolocep Island off Croatia's Dalmatian Coast racks up easy points when it comes to paradise getaways. This gem's got unspoiled beaches, secret coves and scrumptious food. Fewer than 170 people live here, so if you're after peace and quiet, it doesn't get much better than this.

Beaches and harbours

Kolocep's quaint villages are topped with terracotta, and the white sand here's some of Europe's finest. Gornje Celo's a good shout for private boat tours around the bay. If you prefer solid ground, take a sunset stroll in Donje Celo and find a spot for seafood and wine.

A stone's throw from Dubrovnik

A quick 25-minute boat ride from Kolocep lands you in the bustling walled city of Dubrovnik. Think historic sights, trendy bars and fanciful fine dining. Walk the Medieval walls, sprawl on the beach or take a cable car ride above the Pearl of the Adriatic Sea.

Seafood heaven

From meaty tuna steaks to gourmet sea bream plates, the restaurants across this fishing island are prime spots for all sorts of seafood delights. If you're keen for a light bite, you can't beat a serving of grilled calamari beside the Kolocep shore.
