Are you considering spending your next holidays in the Adriatic? That is a great idea and let us tell you why! The Adriatic Sea is definitely on of the most pleasant bodies of salt water you can ever visit. The crystal-clear waters are inviting you to take a swim from the first moment you lay eyes on them. Furthermore due to its location – being surrounded by land in almost all direction – the Adriatic Sea is extremely calm and warm. Even in the most turbulent times, the waves don’t get higher than a meter. That said, you can see why holidays in the Adriatic can be very safe and pleasurable for all of your family members.
HOLIDAYS IN CROATIA
When you think about holidays in the Adriatic, you probably first think about traveling to Croatia. Once you get over there, you certainly will not be able to avoid the endless blue horizons of the Adriatic Sea as this country owns almost 6000 km of it shores: 1777 km of mainland coastline plus additional 4058 km if you count all the islands and islets. This nation is inseparably connected to the sea and you will indisputably feel these bonds while wandering the streets of its historic coastal towns. If you don’t have enough time to visit Croatia in a week-long trip and get to know all of them, consider taking a shorter Dubrovnik City Break. This famous town located at the very south of the country provides a great base to explore the coast and the nearby islands.
HOLIDAYS IN ALBANIA
With 284 km, Albania has the second-longest Adriatic coastline (counting only Balkan countries of course). However, let’s not forget there is another, a 96-km stretch along the Ionian Sea which is equally charming. That said, there is certainly enough room for everyone who decides to spend their next summer vacation in Albania. You probably never thought about visiting this almost forgotten European country, but you will definitely won’t be sorry if you choose to do so. The rates are very affordable and the infrastructure is better than you probably imagine. Yes, there are many crowded tourist centers, but the best thing about visiting Albania is the opportunity to explore its wild side and find more remote places like the jaw-dropping Gjipe beach.
HOLIDAYS IN MONTENEGRO
Nestled between Croatia to the north and Albania to the south, tiny Montenegro is a wondaful and for many unexpected surprise. This little Balkan pocket has everything you would hope for when searching for the perfect summer destination. From steep mountains which gave the country its name, to historic towns like Kotor and party centers like Budva. Not to mention the crystal-clear waters that will take your breath away. You can take a refreshing swim in the sea after hiking in one of its many national parks. You can relax on a nice pebble beach with a good book in your hands or you can dance the night away. Considering all the options, visiting Montenegro should definitely be high on your priority list when planning your next holidays in the Adriatic.
Holidays in the Adriatic are a perfect getaway
CRUISE HOLIDAYS IN THE ADRIATIC
Most certainly the best way to explore the Adriatic Sea are the always popular small ship cruises in Croatia. In one incredible week you can visit all of the most important Dalmatian islands without having to to change hotels or worry about ferry schedule. Island hopping has never been easier! We offer ships of various categories – from standard ones to more luxury options. While most of them are focused on exploring the cultural heritage and natural beauties of the Adriatic Sea, there are also special Adriatic cruises in case you looking for something more specific. Check them out and get in touch with our agents to learn more about our special offers.
Alongside our regular cruises from Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Opatija, we also give you the opportunity to spend you holidays in the Adriatic on a private gulet. This is by far the most ideal option for families or group of friends who want to share this kind of unique experience. Alternatively you can also rent a week-long sailboat or catamaran tour which is a more intimate experience. The options abound!
Sailing through the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea is a wonderful and unique experience everyone should have in their lifetime. Soaking in the sun and exploring the rich culture of Dalmatian islands during the day and sleeping in the bays where silence is the only companion, covered by a starry sky… This and so much more is what you experience when navigating on a sailboat. A week in your life that you will never forget.
The sea is the main player on a tour to Croatia, but for sure not the only one. A cruise among the Dalmatian islands can easily be combined with other activities such as cycling. Many travellers have a problem to completely relax for a whole week and need to stay in motion even on vacations. If you are one of them, consider biking along the well maintained paths of Brac and Hvar. It’s a great way to explore this beautiful islands covered with greenery, medieval cities, lakes and mountains.
If you are not really a bike kind of person, there are many hiking options which can easily be combined with cruises as well. We are full of suggestions for all levels especially in the rugged Bay of Kvarner. Peaks above the bay offer incredible views of the Adriatic Sea worth the effort.
And let’s not forget about the gastronomy of the region! Fresh daily catch from the Adriatic Sea is served in the restaurants along the coast and accompanied by high quality wine. The local olive oil is also very praised as you will definitely discover by yourself. In the northern parts of the Adriatic you can visit Istira – a magical peninsula full of rich history and incredible gastronomy delights. You simply must try the famous Istrian truffle which goes very well with the traditional local pasta.
