Things we love
"There is so much to love about this area. Mesmerising scenery, crystal clear waters, lovely people and THE FOOD! Foodies will love it here as there is such emphasis on gastronomy. Fresh ingredients like fish and seafood, hearty stews, fabulous olive oils and rare truffles are in abundance here."
Things to be aware of
"As with much of Croatia, the beaches are beautiful but rarely sandy. Pack your beach shoes! Many of them have pebbles and shingle which is harder underfoot but is also partly responsible for the crystal clear, turquoise, seas that you won’t see anywhere else in the world."
