Croatia holidays have rocketed in popularity over the years and it's all thanks to one region in particular - the stunning Dalmatian Coast. Starting at Split and ending in Dubrovnik, this sun-soaked region is famed for its golden beaches, picturesque forests and fabulous resorts.
Holidays to the Dalmatian Coast are synonymous with both relaxing breaks and exciting getaways. No holiday here is the same, with both cities and separate islands all within easy reach. When you’re not exploring UNESCO World Heritage sites in Split, you may be taking a boat tour of Dalmatian’s many other paradisiacal islands, including Brac and Bol.
The Dalmatian Coast is the perfect destination for a holiday, whether you’re travelling with family, friends or that special someone. Here at Holiday Gems, we’ve made it our mission to provide you with amazing holidays to Croatia that are both affordable and tailored to your needs.
Of course, the biggest / most popular reason so many are flocking to the Dalmatian Coast is the region’s glorious hot weather. When summer rolls around, the region experiences average temperatures of 25-28 degrees Celsius, which can hit 30 and above on the hottest days.
If an activity-filled holiday is more your thing, you’ll be pleased to know that the region boasts a number of fantastic dive centres and places where you can enjoy water sports. There’s also plenty on offer for the kids, including Aquapark Solaris water park in Sibenik and children’s clubs across the region. There’s something for everyone in this outstanding part of Croatia.
Holidays to the Dalmatian Coast feature a range of exciting things to do. The region is home to a huge list of activities and attractions. Below is a list of our favourites:
The Dalmatian Coast has a vast and fascinating history. There are a lot of galleries and museums dotted around the region that celebrate this history. The most famous is the beautiful Diocletian Palace in Split. This UNESCO World Heritage Site dates back to the Middle Ages and is built from marble and white stone.
Another must see is are the Split City Museums, which are packed with local artefacts and relics that tell the unabridged story of the region.
Azure waters and golden sands line the whole of the Dalmatian Coast. Those who venture around the coastline are sure to spot some of the hidden coves and beautiful scenery of the region. Sticking to the main areas will treat to a selection of bustling tourist spots that make for a pleasant day out.
Like anywhere with a decent beach, water sports are very popular in the Dalmatian Coast. Surfing, jet skiing and parasailing are all on offer on the local beaches, along with a range of other popular water sports.
Croatia’s national cuisine is heavily influenced by that of its Mediterranean neighbours, Italy and Greece. This makes the local food incredibly delicious and full of juicy tomatoes and rich meat. There are many local restaurants on offer on Dalmatian Coast holidays, so there is no excuse not to sample the breath taking food.
