6 Essential Croatian Destinations


4. Galesnjak

This a romantic destination, although it can absolutely be enjoyed as a single traveller.  The island itself is shaped like a heart, almost perfectly so, and thus, is accurately nicknamed “Lover’s Island”.  It is still relatively uncrowded, although crowds are growing.  It is small and completely surrounded by water and bush; most people enjoy camping here as the landscape is so unspoiled.

3. Cavtat

Just south of Dubrovnik is Cavtat, a quintessentially pretty village situated on an idyllic bay.  Tradition still reigns here; surrounding the village is miles of fields and red-roofed homes.  Catvat is a relatively close escape from the crowds of Dubrovnik; it maintains all the charm, but has a slightly less stressful atmosphere.
