Croatia is known as the country of a thousand islands, making it a true summer paradise in which everyone can find a place of their own. We’ll cover just a few of the most famous and popular ones since it would take days to describe all of them.
First of them is Hvar, a long and narrow island in the central Dalmatia, right behind Brač. It’s known as the sunniest island in the world, with more than 2000 hours of sunshine a year! Hvar has a little something for anyone; from beautiful sand and pebble beaches, and historic locations to lively nights club known all around the world.
Brač is the highest island in Croatia. It is located right across Split. The symbol of Brač is “Zlatni rat”, a world-famous beach of a specific horn-like shape in Bol. Brač also offers numerous other beaches such as Lovrečina (sand beach east of Postira), Murvica (south side of the island), and little, secretive beaches that provide privacy and peace. Vidova Gora is the peak of the island and offers a stunning view of Bol and Hvar across the sea. It is also great for stargazing, especially during the summer when meteor showers occur. “Hrapoćuša” is a must-try when visiting Brač. It is a native cake made of caramelized walnuts!
Vis is an island further away from the land, southwest of Hvar. It is known for dreamy beaches and caves. The little island next to it, Biševo, is home to the famous Blue cave. If you want to explore the cave together with the island of Vis, our Blue cave tour is just the thing you’re looking for!
Šolta is a small island west of Brač. It is one of the less-known tourist destinations which makes it a perfect place when looking for something quieter, but just as beautiful. Stomorska and Maslinica towns offer many hidden, perfectly preserved, and clean beaches with sea colors you can only imagine.
Korčula is an island northwest of Dubrovnik. As a home of great culture, history, and wines, this island won’t leave you disappointed. Cultural manifestations, festivals, and concerts are what make Korčula stand out from the other islands. Explore vineyards on bikes, soak up the sun on Korčula’s beautiful beaches and explore the long history of the island. You won’t regret it!
These are just a few of Croatia’s islands. It would take several visits to this country to really get to know every one of them. Even a majority of the locals have never been to more than a few of them! We believe that it is something worth doing, as Croatia has a long history dating back to the stone age, and every island has a story for itself. Not to mention the nature, foods, and drinks that make every one of them differ from the other. It would be hard to choose which ones to visit first, but you can’t miss with Croatian islands!Share this tour
