Sun-dappled coastlines, sailboats and cycling 

Game of Thrones really put Croatia on the map, and the walled city of Dubrovnik is an absolute must-visit. However, there’s so much more to Croatia than the filming spots for the famous TV series. Its sparkling coastline is just waiting to be explored, with the clear waters and beautiful beaches a paradise for sunshine chasers and lovers of water sports. 

Take a trip by sailboat, car or bicycle along the Croatian coastline and you’ll discover Roman ruins, impressive mountain ranges, over 1,000 charming islands, remote coves, magnificent waterfalls and outdoor activities galore. Some stop-off spots include Diocletian’s Palace in Split, the World Heritage-listed Plitvice Lakes National Park, the islands of Hvar and Korčula and Zagreb’s cafes. The best way to explore the Adriatic coast is by boat. It’s a great way to reach some of the smaller, lesser-explored islands where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowds and truly kick back and relax. 

World Travellers’ consultants are able to help you plan the perfect getaway to this dazzling coastal paradise. Get in touch with your nearest store or broker to start planning an adventure filled with sunny days and long, balmy nights.

Tips and advice from our travel advisors

Hvar - the beautiful wee town that stole a piece of my heart, bucket cocktails, markets, local tasty cuisine, boats,waterside bars and music galore, hot sunshine and lots of swimming. Great 20 minute walk up the hill for a rewarding view of the whole town. Stunning! I’d recommend going on a boat for 8 days where you can see several places all at once in Croatia - it’s so beautiful.

The most popular Croatian beer is Karlovačko which is the best on a hot summer's day to quench your thirst.

Most visitors to Croatia tend to visit Split or Dubrovnik and not get to any of the gorgeous spots along the coast so I highly recommend you do as you are missing out.

If you are visiting Croatia, I highly recommend day trips. I found that after a couple of days in Dubrovnik I had explored most of the town and was looking to branch out further. There are plenty of reasonably priced day trips to Montenegro to visit the beautiful Kotor or Budva, as well as day trips north to Visit Ston and Korcula, Ston has the second largest City Walls to the Great Wall of China.
