Dalmatia offers numerous island holiday and travel possibilities. If you like a pampered 'full board and all' apartment holiday, you will find more choices available along the mainland Dalmatian coastline, as well as on some of the larger islands, like Hvar and Brac. However, if you prefer a more adventurous type of holiday or travel, to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a Mediterranean island, then we can send you to 'Pakleni otoci' island archipelago, near the island of Hvar.

During the past few years Croatia has become one of the most desirable travel and holiday destinations in Europe, regaining the ground it lost in early 1990s. Combined with its sporting achievements in the late 90s and over the past few years, as well as its exports, in 2006 it's likely to become one of the hottest travel destinations in the world!

In the What to Watch For In 2006 article, TIME magazine writes:

"THE DALMATIAN COAST - This year skip the French and Italian Riviera and head for Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, where mountains meet the shimmering Adriatic Sea. The region is still relatively undiscovered, which means unspoiled beaches and affordable prices even in the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik."

'The Dalmatian Coast beaches of Croatia on the Adriatic Sea are getting their share of buzz [for 2006]', according to CNN website's recent December 2005 travel report about Dalmatia.

There is a very special travel adventure to be experienced in and around the Dalmatian islands and along its picturesque coastline. Contact us with your travel requirements and we'll strive to assist you. We look forward to welcoming you soon to Dalmatian Coast!
