  • To the islands - Croatia

More than 1000 islands lie off the coast of Croatia, some little more than craggy rocks, others large enough to have several towns and villages scattered across them. Of the 67 inhabited islands, about 20 are regularly visited by tourists. No matter where you are along the coast of Croatia, there will always be an island or three on the horizon. Some you'll find are close enough to be connected to the mainland by a short road and you can walk or drive across; some are close enough to take a short boat ride to - either a regular local ferry service , a water taxi or a privately hired boat - whilst others are an hour or more away from port and are serviced by a regular car ferry. The chances are that, no matter how short your time in Croatia is, you'll find yourself setting foot on an island at some time, maybe for just a day trip, maybe to stay for most, if not all, of your holiday. Even if you can't manage this, you should try to hop on board a boat that will take you on a short trip around an island or two.

For real island afficionados, the ultimate island fix comes via a sailing holiday when each and every day will bring new delights as you make your way along the coast
