✈️ UK to Split (2 nights):  Your first stop is Split, located on the Dalmatian coast, where you’ll spend 2 nights exploring this fascinating city that is overflowing with charm and history. The city has a lot to offer, including museums, beautiful beaches and a vibrant nightlife.  Split’s must-see sight is Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the world. The palace is not only a historical monument but the beating heart of the city and has a plethora of shops, restaurants, markets and temples within its ancient walls. For a leisurely stroll, head to the Riva, Split’s waterfront promenade that’s lined with palm trees, has fabulous views of the nearby islands and is a great place to try the Dalmatian cuisine in one of the many cafes and restaurants.  For something more energetic, walk to the top of Marjan Hill for panoramic views of the city and the stunning coastline – especially at sunset.

⛴️ Split to Brac (3 nights):  Leaving the city behind, you’ll head to the blissful world-class beaches on the island of Brac, just a short ferry ride from Split.  Perhaps one of the most famous beaches in Brac, and indeed the whole of Croatia, is Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) which is a stunning natural phenomenon. Located near the town of Bol, this unique beach stretches like a horn into the sea, constantly changing its shape with the currents and winds. It is a perfect spot for sunbathing, swimming, and water sports.  Another favourite is Lovrecina Bay, which is tucked away on the northern coast of Brac, and is ideal for families with children, boasting shallow waters and peaceful surroundings.  Supetar is the main town on Brac, with a lovely horseshoe-shaped bay right next to the town’s promenade and has some fabulous restaurants and tavernas lining its shores – a favourite spot for locals and visitors alike. Other charming coastal towns to explore on the island include Milna a laid-back town nestled in a picturesque bay, and Postira an old maritime town with narrow streets. A visit to Vidova Gora, in the centre of the island, and the highest peak on the Adriatic islands, is a must.  On the way up, you’ll walk through fragrant pine forests before being rewarded with the most wonderful view at the top, including the Zlatni Rat beach below and a wonderful panorama of the nearby islands amidst the shimmering sea.

⛴️ Brac to Korcula (4 nights):  From one idyllic island to the next, your next stop is the captivating Korcula, which you’ll get to via ferry.  Korcula is an island steeped in history and legend and is believed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo.  It has a fascinating medieval Old Town with narrow cobblestone streets and elegant Venetian-style buildings.  However, if it’s stunning beaches you’re looking for, you won’t be disappointed. The beaches in Korcula are generally fairly secluded with an intimate feel, making them perfect for those seeking a quiet, relaxed beach experience. Among the best are Vela Przina in Lumbarda, a sandy beach ideal for families and sunbathers, and Pupnatska Luka, a sheltered bay surrounded by rocky cliffs. You can also head to secluded coves such as Bacva and Samograd and enjoy swimming, snorkelling, or simply soaking up the sun’s rays. Korcula is renowned for its winemaking heritage and has some excellent local wines.  There a many wine tours you can enjoy, amidst the lush surroundings and breath-taking coastal views where you can learn about the winemaking traditions and sample the local wines, including Grk and Pošip.

⛴️ Korcula to Mljet (3 nights):  A short ferry ride will take you to Mljet, a serene island that is home to a wealth of stunning landscapes and natural beauty.  A must-visit is its fabulous national park with two interconnected lakes, Veliko Jezero (Large Lake) and Malo Jezero (Small Lake), which are connected by a narrow channel. You can take a boat ride or rent a kayak to explore the lakes and discover the charming St. Mary’s Island, where you’ll find a Benedictine monastery dating back to the 12th century. Walking and cycling trails around the lakes also provide a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the island’s natural wonders.  Cave lovers will enjoy a trip to Odysseus’ Cave, which is accessible by boat or a short walk from the village of Babino Polje. Its interior and the crystal-clear waters that surround the cave are truly captivating.  For a slice of paradise, head to Saplunara Beach which offers a sandy beach nestled in a peaceful bay, perfect for unwinding and enjoying the natural beauty of the island.

⛴️ Mljet to Dubrovnik (2 nights):  Your holiday concludes with 2 nights in the iconic city of Dubrovnik, also known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’.  The highlight of the city is undoubtedly its Old Town, a beautifully preserved medieval gem enclosed within massive stone walls. Once you’re inside the main entrance of Pile Gate, you’ll find yourself on Stradun, the limestone-paved main street of Dubrovnik’s historic centre which is a hive of bustling activity, charming shops and fascinating landmarks including the 14th century Rector’s Palace and the elegant Sponza Palace with is blend of Gothic and renaissance architecture.  The Cathedral and its treasury are also must-sees.   No visit to Dubrovnik is complete without a walk along its City Walls.  Stretching 1.2 miles (1.9km) they offer amazing views of the city’s terracotta rooftops, the clear blue Adriatic Sea and the nearby Lokrum island.  For equally great views, take the cable car to the top of Mount Srd where you can see the entire city and the surrounding islands in all their glory – a particularly special sight at sunset.
