You’ve seen the photos? You’ve heard about it? You know it’s supposed to be paradise on Earth, but you wanna see for yourself? Don’t wait any longer and visit the Croatian coast! Here are the top 10 things to do while exploring it:

 

1) VISIT AMAZING BEACHES

Besides the fact that you won’t freeze your ass off, as the Adriatic is quite warm, the variety of the beaches is incredible. Whether you’re the sandy beach type or the rocks  and deep sea type you’ll be more than satisfied. Here are some amazing beaches suggestions: Stiniva – Vis island, Zlatni rat – Brač island, Dubovica – Hvar, Banje beach – Dubrovnik.

2) TRY THE LOCAL FOOD

When you travel to a new place you have to try the local food. And believe me, in Croatia we’re all about the food. So when you’re at the coast, look for places called Konoba – small, traditional, rustic restaurants with awesome homemade food and wine. Order some of the following dishes and enjoy: Dalmatinski pršut and Paški sir as an appetizer; Dalmatinska pašticada , octopus under the bell, or Brodet as a main course; and Fritule or Rožata as a desert. No description necessary – just try it, you can thank us later.

3) KEEP HYDRATED

The temperatures can get pretty high and keeping hydrated is a must! Besides some fine homemade wines you can find in wine producing households in every village/town on the coast, don’t leave Croatia without trying Rakija – a traditional spirit with loads of  different flavors (herbs, honey, different fruit…). Here are some rakijas worth trying out: medica, travarica, orahovac, loza, šljivovica…  Traditionally Croats drink a beer and then a shot of rakija – then repeat! Keep in mind to drink water while repeating this action, as we don’t want you to spend the next day hungover in bed.

4) LISTEN TO KLAPE

It might seem like an activity for older people but this traditional a cappella singing from the Dalmatian region has touched many younger souls as well. Beautiful songs, mostly about love, go well with some traditional food and wine in konoba restaurants. YouTube some of the following and see for yourself: Klapa Cambi, Klapa Intrade, Klapa Kampanel. You can find these traditional concerts all over the coast.

5) DO SOME EXTREME SPORTS

If you were smart enough not to drink too much rakija last night, you might want to do some extreme sports in Croatia’s wonderful nature. Rent a jet ski and cruise around some bays, bungee jump from a bridge for an amazing upside-down view, wind-surf, kite-surf, go rafting or canoeing. Just make sure to be safe cause you’ve got plenty more things to experience in Croatia. We don’t have time for injuries in our itinerary.

7) QUAD BIKE

Nowadays it’s very popular to quad bike to different villages or towns in the Adriatic coast. An awesome and fun way to view the amazing scenery, and take breaks in hidden bays you wouldn’t get to see otherwise!
