ISLAND-HOP IN CROATIA
WOMAN'S OWN|September 21, 2021
Experience beauty at every turn as you head off on a memorable Adriatic adventure, says Isabelle Broom

Ask anyone who has visited Croatia to tell you about their experience and you will immediately hear mention of its crystal-clear waters. It’s certainly not the place to visit if you’re averse to spending time at sea, because to really appreciate all that this dazzling country has to offer, you must be ready and willing to get your feet wet.

HISTORIC GEM

There are 1,244 islands in total, some little more than a craggy fist of rock protruding from the sea, but the secret is not to be daunted – choosing which to explore is all part of the fun.

Our journey begins in Split, where you may be tempted to hop straight on a catamaran and set sail as soon as you land, but it’s worth giving yourself a day or two to amble along the harbor and through back streets that were once the grand hallways of Emperor Diocletian’s imperial palace. For an immersive experience, stay at the Golden Gate Dream Rooms, within the walls of the palace itself.
