A perfect combination of white pebbled beaches, brilliant turquoise waters, and secret coves, Croatia’s 1,800km coastline can easily give the French Riviera a run for its money, writes Luxury Accomodation Blog. Home to Split (and its spectacular Diocletian’s Palace) and the postcard-perfect town of Dubrovnik, it’s no surprise the famed Dalmatian coast is a perennial favorite. Nevertheless, the heart-shaped Istrian peninsula in northern Croatia is a treasure trove of gastronomic delights, summer festivals, and Italianate coastal towns overflowing with Venetian palaces, Roman amphitheaters, and Medieval cobbled streets. After all, Italy is just across the water. Rovinj, Pula, and Porec are a must for any culture enthusiast out there.
From glamorous party hotspots to pristine Robinson Crusoe-like islets, there are over a thousand islands sprinkled over the bright blue Adriatic Sea of Croatia. With a nightlife scene that rivals that of Ibiza and a gorgeously preserved walled town at least as beautiful as Dubrovnik, Hvar is the country’s sunniest and most fashionable island. Famous for its long winemaking tradition and unspoilt natural beauty, Vis is a mecca for foodies and outdoor enthusiasts, while Brac – with its illustrious Zlatni Rat beach – is a paradise for watersports adventurers. Other exciting destinations include the lush Mljet Island, half of which has been declared a national park; Korčula – the birthplace of Marco Polo; and Rab, with its particularly mild climate and alluring sandy beaches (a rarity in Croatia).
