We discovered this stunning spot a while ago, but it’s fast becoming this year’s holiday hot spot, and no wonder...

Best for beaches: The Dalmation Coast

Croatia’s Dalmation coast has more than 1,200 islands, all with their own hidden bays and bright turquoise water. Most of the beaches on the Adriatic coast are rocky but it actually makes a welcome change from finding sand in your suitcase on the way home, and their beauty is truly unique.

Some people cruise the islands by boat, which doesn’t have to break the bank. Most coastal towns offer day trips or weekend cruises to the islands including the lesser-known, uninhabited ones such as as Suzak, which is composed entirely of sand, or Nin, where you can cover your body in medicinal mud. Both are truly a treat for beach bums who want an uninterrupted tan. The islands of Split, Hvar and Brac are the poster models for Croatian beaches, but the scene is much more party-centric with waterside bars and pumping nightlife.

What else?

Kupari is an interesting stop-off during a trip down the coast. The island was once a holiday resort for the Yuguslav Peoples’ Army and was badly damaged during the war in 1991-1995. Now it’s a post-apocalyptic bay of bombed out hotels and abandoned luxury resorts. The whole island is frozen in time and it’s an eerie experience to explore the marble floor ballrooms that have been overtaken by vines. The beaches however, are just as beautiful as ever, and many locals still visit the surreal site for their summer fix.
