The Dalmatian Coast - Split to Dubrovnik

With its clean, clear waters, constant warm sunshine and unspoiled beaches, the Dalmatian Coast offers adventure travelers the island-hopping holiday with a difference. Having resisted the growing trend of overdevelopment, the islands and mainland coast have somewhat miraculously retained their natural beauty, with quaint villages set among olive groves and vineyards with mountains creating a spectacular backdrop. All along this coastline some 1,200 separate islands cluster close to the mainland as it stretches south. The result is a one of Europe’s most spectacular coastlines.
