The Croatian Adriatic is famous for mixing the Mediterranean tradition with modern chic... The southern Dalmatian islands are the best place to experience this. Here local tourism has avoided mass development and a boutique approach to hotels, restaurants and yachting marinas goes hand in hand with a much older holiday culture of private accommodation and local food and wine.
You will never forget the first impressions of arriving in ancient ports full of Mediterranean palms and overlooked by steep hills. Experience the beautiful beaches on the island of Brač, party in Hvar’s fashionable bars, enjoy a more laid-back experience on the island of Korčula and explore its fascinating medieval capital that offers a mixture of urban tourism and lazing on the beach.
Korčula is also the birthplace of Marko Polo, the famous world traveler. The somewhat wilder and less urban island of Vis is an obligatory destination for travelers who want a piece of the Adriatic just for themselves.
Mljet and Lastovo are favorite destinations for experiencing unspoiled nature at its very best. Taste the famous red wine on the Pelješac peninsula and finish your tour of South Dalmatia in the medieval town of Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic.
