Islands you should definitely visit (according to our experience)
The island of Brač is the highest and third largest island in the Adriatic Sea. Symbol of the island is Zlatni rat in Bol, on the island’s south side – one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire Adriatic. However, it is not only a place of exceptional beauty, but also full of traditions and secrets that will make your vacation complete. Brac island historical heritage and a vital folk culture provide a perfect setting for a vacation filled with unforgettable experiences.
Šolta is a small island in Middle Dalmatia and certainly one of the greenest and most beautiful islands of the Croatian Adriatic. Not too big and not too small, Šolta is 19 km long and about three kilometres wide. Steep cliffs form the southern coast, pleasant coves in the north offer possibilities to swim, while the western parts are mostly made up of olive groves and vineyards, offering plenty of opportunities for hikes and places to visit. Šolta is about nine nautical miles away from Split.
Voted one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world and praised by renowned international publications, the island of Hvar has been known for the healing qualities of its pure air and crystal clear sea since ancient Greek times. In the heart of Europe, Hvar’s uniquely sunny microclimate, unspoiled landscape, and rich cultural heritage made it one of the first tourist resorts in the Adriatic.
Whispered to be the new St. Tropez, Hvar has climbed its way to international recognition without effort. Effortlessly ranked as Croatia’s trendiest summer destination, Hvar became an ultimate must-be spot on a travel map for demanding international travelers looking for an authentic Mediterranean experience scented with glamour.
Vis is probably the cleanest part of the Adriatic sea because it is the farthest island from the mainland. Vis isolation has retained the charm and style of life characteristic of the 1950s and which still attracts guests looking for “the Mediterranean as it once was”.
Vis attractions are mainly the natural ones such as its unpolluted sea, soil and air. On the south side of the island, the open sea waves sculptured some of the most eye catching coves and beaches. One of them is Stiniva cove, one of the most frequent themes on Croatia’s promotional posters.
Surrounded by the beautiful blue waters of the Adriatic Sea, the destination is a tremendous blend of picturesque history and stunning natural scenery.
When it comes to tucking into local cuisine, the island is particularly well served by eateries with enticing menus full of native dishes – largely dominated by seafood – and wine that is produced in Vis itself.
Rich in vineyards, olive groves and small villages, and harbouring a glorious old town, the island of Korčula is the sixth-largest Adriatic island, stretching nearly 47km in length.
Quiet coves and small sandy beaches dot the steep southern coast while the northern shore is flatter and more pebbly.
Tradition is alive and kicking on Korčula, with age-old religious ceremonies, folk music and dances still being performed to an ever-growing influx of tourists. Oenophiles will adore sampling its wine. Arguably the best of all Croatian whites is produced from pošip grapes, which are only grown here and to a lesser extent on the Pelješac Peninsula.
Lastovo is a small island in the Adriatic Sea in Croatia located south of Korcula Island. The island has an area of only 46 square kilometre and a population of just under 1300 people.
Additional area of 56 square kilometres includes Lastovo Archipelago which consist of 46 additional small islands dotted around Lastovo coast.
Island of Lastovo is becoming more popular among the travelers as this island is one of the last untouched areas of Mediterranean.
Because of it’s preserved natural beauty, Lastovo became Nature Park of Croatia in 2006.
