Susak is a small island on the northern Adriatic coast with less than 200 locals, no roads, and only one village.
The distinct yellow dust this chunk of land is made of, a dialect only 200 people on the planet fully understand and the fact that it is practically impossible to find only contribute to the island’s mystic presence. Reaching it by boat can be quite an adventure, as well as finding accommodation.
The island of Krk is the biggest and northernmost island in the Adriatic Sea. It is also the most accessible, diverse and, consequently, the most visited island in Croatia.
It offers everything from historic towns to rural villages, where the authentic spirit of the old world is still present, crowded city beaches and secluded bays, night bars, as well as family-friendly restaurants.
The island of Pag is the fifth-largest Croatian island and the one with the longest coastline. This North Dalmatian island has also become known as Croatia’s party island, due to Zrce beach with its legendary Hideout Festival and many other summer events. However, Pag is an island with two very distinct faces.
One is the face of the multiple music festivals during the summer and the other is the world of roughly eight thousand inhabitants, who live on this island all four seasons of the year.
Cres is the same size as Krk, which makes it one of the two largest Croatian islands. It is located in the northern part of the Adriatic Sea and is accessible by a drawbridge.
Most of the island is still fairly undeveloped, which makes it perfect for an adventurous vacation. Its largest town, also called Cres, is a must-see for all lovers of Venetian architecture.
Another sight worth visiting is the strikingly beautiful ancient mountain village of Lubenice, which offers a great view of the sea and neighboring islands.
