Croatia

Island Hopping: Dubrovnik, Korcula, Hvar, Split

Description

With its mountainous coastal backdrop, scattering of tawny islands and giddying translucent waters, the Croatian Adriatic offers one of the most compelling seascapes in Europe. Indeed it’s an island-hopper’s paradise, with a veritable shoal of ferries providing the opportunity to stride up the gangplank, sprawl on the sun deck and soak up the maritime scenery.
