Here you'll find many marinas to choose from as well as many islands and perfect weather conditions. Along this part of the Adriatic coast, you really get a taste of Croatia's rich history. Some lovely islands to visit here are Pašman, Pag Ugljan, Dugi Otok, Ist, Iž and Murter. From here you can also visit the National Park, Plitvice Lakes. The town of Zadar has a rich history dating 3000 years back in time and Sibenik with its impressive Cathedral and proximity to the National Park Kornati - the islands here are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. If you get a chance, also try the local sheep cheese of Pag.
On the outskirts of Split, you will find some of Croatia's most famous and popular natural beauty spots, the islands of Hvar, Brac and Vis. Experience the old cobbled villages with their rustic clock towers, nuns who walk along the streets and the lavender meadows on Hvar. Join an organized tour and experience the Blue Lagoon or get the skipper to take you to the green lagoon where you can jump into the sea and snorkel in and outside the cave. One tip is to spend a day in the tranquil bay on the island of Palmizana, which attracts everything from yachts to sailboats and small boats. Here there are many great lunch restaurants serving everything from home-made olive oil to fabulous seafood. Visit the town of Split on the mainland and stroll around the charming old town.
The idyllic pearl Dubrovnik is one of the most popular cities in Croatia and will enthrall you with its Mediterranean charm. Other things to see in the area are the almost uninhabited Elafiti islands that are perfect for day trips. Visit also the nationalparks, Mljet or Lastovo. The long peninsula of Peljesac produce some of Croatia's finest wines, and Mali Ston is known for being a gastronomic center with the longest city walls in Europe.
