Are you planning to visit Croatia soon, but still don't have a clear idea about your itinerary? Don't worry as Croatia is known as the 'Balkan's jewel' since the country has a diverse archipelago of more than 1,200 islands. The massive and diverse archipelago makes Croatia an attractive cruising destination. You may have a real struggle while picking the islands you'd like to visit. Believe me, you won't be the first person who had a struggle with that.
Don't worry though, I was traveling around the Croatian coast and islands many times, so I'm going to share must-visit Croatian islands with you. In my opinion, the best way to truly explore the beauty Croatian islands have to offer is by chartering a cruise ship. I've had an extraordinary experience with Cruise Agency and simply couldn't recommend them more.
Let's go on the journey around Croatia together…
Korčula is definitely first on our list, but not without the reason. If you’ve ever met a traveler who has visited beautiful Croatia, the chances are (s)he visited Korčula and has only the best words for the tiny island in the southern Adriatic sea. A historical island with untouched nature is located just off Dubrovnik’s coast which is one of the main cruise destinations in Croatia. If you’re into history, mouthwatering local food, and breathtaking nature, then Korčula will blow you away.
Did you know that iconic explorer Marco Polo was born in the only town Vela Luka that serves as a touching point to Korčula? Rent a bicycle and ride around the island, hike to surrounding mountains and observe golden sunset, or simply learn about history in Town Center Museum.
Hvar is probably the most popular and crowded island located near Split. Islands are usually slow-paced places featuring a relaxed vibe, but Hvar is a bit different. Don’t get me wrong, there are still awesome places where you can truly relax and enjoy your time in paradise. Did you know that Hvar is known as a party island where nightlife doesn’t stop?
The prices are a bit on the higher end, and it’s not strange to meet celebrities partying in one of the popular nightclubs or beach bars. If partying isn’t your thing, you can head to Stari Grad (Old Town) which is listed in the UNESCO Heritage list as the town features 2,300 years old architecture, a museum, the beautiful square where you can relax with a coffee and much more.
Krk is located in the northern Adriatic Sea and is known as the biggest Croatian island. You can easily reach the island from the mainland through Krčki Bridge. The island is extremely diverse when it comes to landscape and nature since the north features more continental vegetation, while the south is known for higher mountains, an abundance of bays and steep rocks. Krk is probably the best known for an abundance of hiking trails and thick forest which makes it a perfect destination for adventurers.
