It doesn’t matter if you are looking to spend your vacation at the VIP clubs and beaches, or if you’re looking for more of an isolated endeavor, the Croatian Islands definitely have something in store for you. If you’re planning to head to Croatia sometime soon, be sure to include these gorgeous islands on your travel itinerary! Ready, set, let’s go island hopping in Croatia!
If you’re a yacht owner, this island is absolutely one that you must explore. With miles and miles of sun-filled beaches and tons of nightlife and great shopping, Hvar is an incredible location! Though the island is known for its Yacht club, if you head outside of the city limits you can find some quaint villages teeming with culture. Do make sure to explore a bit!
Cres, a beautiful Croatian island has scenery capable of pleasing just about anyone. The Northern portion of the island boasts dense forests and rocky cliffsides while the coastline is full white sand and the turquoise waters. As a result, this is a popular place. Cres is the second largest island of the Adriatic and it’s also home to two huge colonies of Griffon vultures. You’ll be amazed at how massive these beasts are, I don’t know how they manage to look so graceful when flying!
Not only is the Croatian island of Brac home to one of the tallest mountains on any Adriatic island (Vidova Goro) but it has it’s own airport as well. And not many of the other islands in the region could say the same! The island itself is relatively barren, but with olive trees and other region-specific plants, travelers can expect that the foliage is nothing less than beautiful! Be sure to try some of the olive oil while on the island..it tastes much richer here!
Silba is a relatively deserted island with no cars, no hotels, and even no bikes during the summer months! Walking is just about the only form of travel. If this way of living appeals to you, check out Airbnb in the area since they don’t have hotels. If you want to truly get away from all the hustle and bustle of life, Silba is the place to visit. Just don’t forget to leave your cell phone at home, too! I
Head to Paradise Beach if you are looking for something a little more family-friendly, or head to Suha Punta Beach for rougher surf and a bit more of a “party” vibe. Check out the local history by visiting places like the library of free books and a variety of local churches or museums!
