With its sapphire waters and miles of Mediterranean coastline, Croatia is fast becoming one of the world’s hottest new “it” destinations. But for all its newfound popularity, Croatia’s historic beauty and allure remain unaffected. You’ll find underground caverns, craggy cliffs, rolling farmland, ancient walled cities and more than one thousand islands.
Situated on a horseshoe-shaped bay between the Biokovo mountains and the Adriatic Sea, the small city of Makarska is the center of the Makarska Riviera, offering everything from historic churches and prehistoric pine forests to trendy cafés, bars and shops overlooking the harbor and gorgeous Adriatic beaches.
Located near the city of Dubrovnik, Kolocep is the southernmost island in Croatia, with a sunny climate and a warm, welcoming spirit. There are no cars on the island, but scenic pathways can take you everywhere, accompanied by the fresh scents of rosemary, lavender and pine in the air.
