If you love food, Dalmatia is an ideal choice of destination! Seafood is the dish of the day on the coast, with delicious white fish and shellfish caught fresh each morning from the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. That same evening, the fish is usually being served to diners in local restaurants. Within inland areas, popular dishes often include meats such as local prosciutto. These dishes are well-accompanied by the range of great local wines available – both red and white. Dalmatia boasts an abundance of excellent restaurants serving local dishes, ranging from tiny local taverns and bistros, to fine dining establishments.
Dalmatia is packed with stunning natural beauty from over 300 islands offshore to the dramatic mountains inland. There is a wealth of national parks to explore offering many great opportunities for exploring on foot or by bicycle.

There are a great number of boat trips available from local ports and harbours, offering a peaceful and relaxing way to explore the best of this stunning coastline as you glide across the sparkling waters of the Adriatic Sea.
The coastline of Dalmatia is simply beautiful, with countless pebble or sandy beaches backed by pine trees, peaceful bays and crystal clear waters.

The beautiful islands of Brac and Hvar are easily accessible by ferry from a number of points along the coast, and both have many secluded beaches where you can get away from it all.
