Croatia’s position between the Balkans and central Europe has meant that the country has, historically at least, slipped under the radar of the Mediterranean holidaymaker. But now, curious travellers are catching on, with a growing number travelling to this island-speckled paradise in search of something new.
And they’re right to do so. As well as being rich with historic destinations brimming with culture, heritage and traditions, Croatia boasts some of Europe’s most spectacular natural wonders – from paradise isles enveloped in turquoise seas to lush national parks that offer the very best in wild exploration.
So, while the historic allure of Dubrovnik and coastal splendour of Hvar may top the list of reasons to visit Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast, there’s yet more beauty to uncover in the country’s nature reserves and national parks. Here, we take a closer look at Croatia’s best natural beauty spots, giving you a sense of the wonders that await on a Dalmatian Coast ocean cruise with Emerald Waterways.
