From the charm of Korcula to the nature of Miljet and the nightlife of Hvar, if you’re sailing in Croatia, these are the best Croatian islands you have to visit.
I’ve spent a lot of time in Croatia over the last four years, exploring different areas each time. From Split to Dubrovnik, Zadar to Rovinj, it’s one of my favourite countries. I love the landscapes, the colours and the beautiful old cities and towns. When I’m away, one of my favourite things to do is hop on a boat and explore some of the islands.
There are over 1,200 islands along Croatia’s Adriatic coastline. Some are teeny tiny uninhabited places, while others have towns, villages and lots to do.
Some you can visit for a day by catching a boat from Split or Dubrovnik, while others you might want to charter or book onto a Croatia sailing cruise and spend several days island hopping from the comfort of your yacht or gulet.
I love the freedom of travelling by boat. You can set your own itinerary, spend the morning exploring quaint old towns, your afternoons getting to grips with nature and your evenings wine tasting or partying until the early hours. So, if you’re sailing in Croatia, here are my top picks of the best islands to visit while you’re there.
