Project Description

Croatia‘s extraordinary coastline is indisputably its main attraction. The first thing that strikes you is the remarkable clarity of the water. When it’s set against a dazzling white pebbly beach, the water sparkles with a jewel-like intensity in shades of emerald and sapphire. There are long sandy beaches– perfect for lazy days spent lounging and reading till you heart is content. There are lots of water activities to lure you off your sun lounger – snorkelling, diving, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing, just for starters.
Michelin stars have been awarded to two Croatian restaurants, effectively boosting the country’s reputation as a top gourmet destination. Check the Culinary Delights page for Culinary tours of this region.
