My favorite 10 stops down the Croatian coastline

 

For Thanksgiving I went for a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. My friends and I rented a car and we drove down the Highway 1. After I came back I was inspired to write a post about driving down the Adriatic cost. If you consider yourself as an adventurous person, going by motorbike would be a lifetime experience.

1.Opatija

Opatija was well known within Austrian imperial families as a luxury destination. Today most of the villas they used to live in are hotels.

Spend a two days in a relaxing environment in a spa and next to the sea having a lunch in one of the most famous restaurants called Bevanda.

2.Island Krk

Krk is one of the biggest Croatian islands, also known as Golden island, because of its beautiful sunsets and sandy/pebble beaches. Krk is a very historical island, considered as the heart of Croatian history. Place to visit is church of Saint Lucija.Once you get there do not miss to try a cake called Krčka torta.

3.Crikvenica

One of the most popular places among citizens of Zagreb (Croatian capital city). Lots of cafes clubs and nice beaches. Crikvenica is just a perfect size to walk around and enjoy the streets. Hotspot is hotel Terapija, if you are not staying there, a coffee on the terrace is a perfect choice as well.

4.Island Pag,Novalja

A place to be for party animals. The most famous clubs here are Papaya and Aquarius, which are situated right by the beach. After-beach parties are just crazy. The most famous DJs have been hosted in the above clubs. It is a popular destination for all Europeans who like to party “all day all night”.

5.Nin

Nin is situated on the small island, which is connected with a cost by two bridges. It is considered as the oldest Croatian town and it has the smallest cathedral. It is also famed as a place with medical mud.

6.Zadar

Zadar is also a historical city from the Roman Empire. My top choice in Zadar to spend an afternoon is by the sea organs, which plays music by way of sea waves, and ‘a salute to the sun’ two very unique pieces of art.

7.Primošten

Primošten or the ‘Beach city’, because it is surrounded by many pebble beaches and crystal clear sea. It has a cute little old town with plenty of traditional restaurants called ‘konoba’. For those who enjoy summer nightlife, do not miss to visit the club ‘Aurora’.

8.Trogir

Definitely the most amazing part of Trogir is the Fortress Kamerlengo. It is right on the promenade (called Riva in Croatian). This is a breathtaking place for a morning coffee. If you are interested to experience some local music and clubbing, F1 is the place to go to.

9.Brela and Baška Voda

The best Croatian beaches on the coastline are from Makarska to Cavtat. Brela and Baska Voda are my favorite places to spend a whole day at the beach, and having cocktails in the beach club Južnjačka utjeha.

 10.Cavtat

A small town on the very South of Croatia. Fulfill your day with a sea kayaking tour or enjoy a countryside bike tour and wine tasting.

For all of you who are adrenalin driven, between Vodice and Sibenik, on the Sibenik bridge, you can give bungee jumping a try. The view from there cannot be described. You have to experience it!
