Close your eyes and picture yourself draped lazily on a beach towel, the warm breeze carrying the songs of swirling birds and the gentle laps of water, you try to figure out the cries of fishermen hauling in their catch while you’re digging holes with your feet into the sand to reach the cooler under layer. It’s Tuesday. Welcome to the Dalmatian Coast, where everything feels like a wanton luxury.
This alternate trip begins in spoiled Split, a cultural Mecca of Croatia full of flare, ambience and romance. After exploring Split we cruise between various islands of the Dalmatian Coast enjoying their dramatic karst rock outcrops, secluded coves, prime beaches, culinary wealth and fresh water springs. The high water quality of the Adriatic makes it an inviting destination with excellent swimming opportunities as well as regular nautical races and tourism. You might even get to see an olm, the only known aquatic cave vertebrate.
As far as we can tell Croatia has all the essential elements for a perfect cycling vacation; quiet roads, breathtaking scenery, an abundance of historical sites and now, wonderful hotels and restaurants into which we encourage you sink your cultureseeking teeth.
