"Picture this… consecutive days of lapping up the Mediterranean sun, diving off a boat into glistening waters, exploring quaint towns scattered along a rugged coastline, eating gelato and meandering down cobblestoned alleyways. If you are sitting here thinking that this sounds like a dream come true, it is about time you plan a visit to Croatia. With no shortage of picturesque spots to discover, every nook and cranny of this country is begging to be explored.
The island of Mljet is one of the most naturally beautiful islands in the Adriatic. With most the land remaining untouched, this mediterranean paradise is covered in rich forests, olive groves and two stunning turquoise lakes. After spending a lot of time in different towns on our sailing tour, I absolutely loved coming to a place where I could escape and feel fully immersed in nature. Hire bikes and cycle through Mjlet National Park, float on top of the salt water lakes or simply take a wander through the forest. There are a couple of basic shops and cafes along the waterfront, but besides this, the island remains mostly uninhabited."

"There’s no doubt that Croatia is one of the most popular travel destinations in summer. Because of its natural beauty, the country’s main drawcard, tourists flock to its seaside cities and islands in the search for the perfect beachside escape by the Adriatic sea... Croatia has it all: rugged coves, pristine beaches, medieval towns and natural wonders, making it the perfect holiday destination for adventurers and sun worshippers alike."

“Days wandering the Old Town of Dubrovnik, exploring Lopud and other local islands by boat, and swimming through their hidden caves. Each sunset saw the sky light up, and the sea reflect it’s beauty straight back. I have spent a lot of time exploring Croatia over the years, and adore falling in love with a different aspect and experience of it with each visit.”
