Islands in Croatia - activities while holidaying

Dalmatians say that the secret to a perfect vacation is fiaka – an appealing lazy mood of complete contentment. And the only way to achieve this is by exploring the best Dalmatian islands. These come with plenty of pristine blue waters and beaches to explore. Besides, they make room for a unique traveling experience!
Croatia has one of the most impressive coastlines on the globe. It is home to more than 1000 islands, islets, and unusual formations. And 48 of those are inhabited. From remote fishing spots to harbors, these Croatian islands offer a thorough representation of each style enacted by locals. 
Keep in mind that even though the islands spread from Istria to Dubrovnik, most islands can be found in central and southern Dalmatia. Central Dalmatian islands tend to be dry and rocky, but olive trees and lush vegetation surround them. 
Croatian Islands are the preferred destination for tourists, which is why many of them return yearly to explore even more. These islands attract their guests with virgin nature, beautiful waters, and welcoming sunny beaches.

Island Losinj

Losinj Island is connected to Mali Losinj, the main town from which tourists can reach the island. It is an enchanting island connected by a long narrow bay to the land. During history, this place was an important shipyard point for the country. But today, it is filled with 19th-century villas, yachts, and plenty of tourist attractions. The most impressive natural landmarks in Losinj are the Aromatic Garden with lavender, sage, and several Mediterranean shrubs, along with the dolphin watching activities. 

Island Hvar

The most popular island in Croatia is Hvar. The Hvar town spread around a sheltered harbor filled with yachts, local restaurants, and baroque-style promenades. The palm-lined seafront path offers an exciting view over the hilltop castle. There are several attractions in Hvar, including local wineries, and lavender fields.
