Six Reasons To Go To The Dalmatian Coast Now

The unspoiled Adriatic coastline is a glittering jewel in Croatia‘s crown, azure skies, clear ocean waters and red-tiled rooftops are the signature notes of this region. Here are six other reasons to travel there this summer and autumn.


1. Hotels are upping their game

The already fabulous Villa Dubrovnik in Dubrovnik has new owners who are going to make their mark. The hotel will be undergoing major refurbishment in 2024.

Over in Hvar, the newly opened Maslina Resort has quickly become our favorite. With amazing amenities, waterfront location, and close to the Old Town, this “mindful luxury” oasis is a true gem.

2. The Diocletian’s Palace

Staying in Split, the Roman Diocletian’s Palace is a must-see. Not one building, but a wonderful labyrinth of intertwining streets where people still live, eat, and work, it is a living, thriving museum.

3. Delicious Food

Croatia is climbing culinary heights, from the truffle-infused Istrian Peninsula to the Dalmatian Coast known for the freshest seafood. Enjoy one of our favorite restaurants, Dvor, in Split, perched above the sea, in its own secluded garden.

4. Exceptional Islands

Even if you don’t have time to make it to Hvar, Korcula or Mljet, you can enjoy the most secluded and exclusive Elaphiti Islands close to Dubrovnik with a day on your private boat. You can move around at your will, and even in peak season, you will find a hidden spot.

5. Sunshine!

Croatia boasts an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day, and the island of Hvar has the accolade of being the sunniest of all with 2,800 hours of sun per year!

6. Montenegro!
