For balmy days by sapphire waters in the shade of ancient walled towns then look no further.
Croatia’s extraordinary island-speckled coastline is indisputably its main attraction. The first thing that strikes you is the remarkable clarity of the water. Set against a dazzling white pebbly beach, the sea sparkles with a jewel-like intensity in shades of emerald and sapphire. There are long sandy and shingly stretches too – perfect for lazy days spent sun worshipping and catching up on your holiday reading. If that all sounds too relaxing, there are plenty of water-based activities at hand to lure you off your sun lounger – snorkelling, diving, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing, just for starters.
Situated between the Balkans and central Europe, this land has been passed between competing kingdoms, empires and republics for millennia. As a result, it has a rich cultural legacy. Venture inland and you will find Venetian palaces, Napoleonic forts, Roman columns which protrude from early Slavic churches and Viennese mansions – all of these along with Socialist Realist sculpture!
Brac is one of the closest islands to Split on the central Dalmatian Coast and is home to Croatia’s most famous beach, the Zlatni rat (“golden cape”) – a finger of fine sand and shingle that protrudes off the coast from the small town of Bol, it shape ever-changing with the tides. Brac is also Croatia’s top windsurfing destination and the views from the top of Vidova Gora, the highest point of all Croatia’s islands, are worth the visit.
