Nobody cannot resist to beauties and charms that offer Croatia, especially the coast. With a rich and varied history and the beautiful coastline which can be compared with any coast in Europe, Croatia is due to many reasons, a popular tourist destination.
Because it offers undiscovered beauty, fascinating cultural heritage and areas that are not yet overcrowded tourists, you can easily opt to spend holidays in one of islands in Croatia, a much heavier decision will be one in which part of the Croatian coast you will spend the holidays and which from many attractions to visit.
Islands in Croatia which I would recommend and especially singled out for vacation are Hvar, Island Brac, Island Krk, Island Rab, Pag Island, Vis Island, Murter, Island Korcula and Losinj Island. Korcula is impressed because of its rich history and sandy beaches, Hvar as a combination of modern and luxury with irresistible historical influence, Brac for the Zlatni rat and the rich offer, Mljet because of the beautiful and unusual nature, and Rab however due to nudity…
The island, which has almost all of those who will not leave anyone indifferent, is the island of Hvar, which is the clash of modern and luxury, high style and rich historical heritage. The landscape full of Mediterranean flowers, lavender and vineyards hides a beautiful refuge Palmizana and islands, which are located not far from the island. The town of Hvar is popular for the beauty of its Old Town (historical and cultural heritage), but also because of the crazy nightlife and clubs. However, the beauty of Hvar will enjoy only those with thick wallet because the island is known for its high prices.
So close, not far is Brac, an island that is often described superlatives such as tallest island, the most beautiful, the oldest archaeological sites and many others. One of the most popular beaches of our coast, because of the beauty and surfing, is certainly the Zlatni rat in Bol, fishing village on the island said. Furthermore, Brac is known for Supetar, the only town on the island with the status of the city, and besides its numerous clubs and good night life, can be proud of and alternative film festival Supetar Super Film Festival.
The island same size like Brac is Island Krk. Krk holding constant in the top tourist visits which, among other things, are delighted with clean beaches (even 14 of them have Blue Flag).
It is an island which you want to see, especially for biking lovers and adrenaline sports. Likewise, the island is very close to the continent, it is easiest to reach by car because of the bridge; a dear and always cheerful are the residents themselves.
Next to the Island Krk, there is an “island of happiness”, better known as Island Rab. About his beauty evidenced by the popular saying that says that God made Rab just for himself, whereas the Devil sent people to it.
On the “island of love”, it is still one of the epithets, there are 22 sandy beaches on the peninsula Lopar, but the most beautiful among them is Paradise beach (Rajska plaza) which is around 1500 meters and also one of the most popular beaches of the island. It is interesting that Rab is the winner in the number of nudists.
Island Mljet is definitely one of the most interesting Croatian Islands; in its unspoiled nature hides many surprises. To begin, it is important to note that Mljet is the oldest National Park in the Adriatic and that is on the island another island, more precisely, the island of St Mary on which the monks in the 12th century found the peace necessary for writing. This is an island of fun, partying and crazy night life, but also an oasis of peace and quiet, moreover untouched nature and wilderness, which everyone was welcome, at least for a while.
If you still do not want to “waste” your days to relaxing, but you want every ounce of energy to waste in dance and alcohol, for you is certainly Pag Island, specifically, Zrce on the Pag, the so-called Croatian Ibiza. Pag is known for its stunning landscapes reminiscent of the lunar surface, their remote caves, but also cheese, lamb, lace and salt.
Vis Island was a Yugoslav military navy base and it was closed for tourists until 1989, but as soon as the last military submarine left the island and Vis was opened to the public. Vis is now, writes The Guardian, hippie-chic resort, in local taverns offer the Dalmatian fish dishes and tourists are offered with fishing trips on which they are shown how to clean and prepare fish. Vis is also known for organically grown wines, such as Vugava and Mali Plavac and Rogacica, strong alcoholic beverage of carob, which grows abundantly on the island.
Murter almost touches the mainland with which is connected with a 12 meters long draw-bridge, and its closeness to the islets and rocks of Kornati National Park makes it a favourite destination of sailors and yachtsmen. Every summer at the Jezera is organized and sailing school and courses at different levels which last seven days and includes early waking up, exercise of sailing and classes in the afternoon.
The specific location of the island with lots of sun and sea, rich in tradition and cultural heritage have been favourable for the development of the tourist Island Korcula. Because of the dense forests of oak and cypress trees, this island are still Greeks called Black Korcula (Korkyra Melainia) and today tourists says for Korcula that this is “Dubrovnik in small”. The town of Korcula is known as the birthplace of the explorer Marco Polo. The town of Korcula can be proud that he managed to preserve the centuries-old tradition knight game called Moreska.
