245 days of sunshine a year. Sapphire waters. Fresh squid. Whitewashed limestone villages. Ride in the morning, taking in the views of the Adriatic on the islands of Hvar, Brac and Korcula, then be a part of the view as you boat between islands. And end the day with a swim. Everyone should experience this. It's as relaxing as the Caribbean, as historic as Venice. Nowhere near as crowded as the French Riviera. People have traveled here for more than 140 years. And yet it still feels like, as the Croatians say, "The Mediterranean as it once was."

    Explore the reborn Dalmatian Coast by bike, with breathtaking sapphire sea views
    Island-hop along the sun-drenched Adriatic and swim in hidden coves
    Dubrovnik, an architectural masterpiece with turrets, spires and tiled roofs
