Conde Nast Traveler continues their love affair with Croatia.
It seems like there has been more than a bit of Croatian buzz coming from Conde Nast Traveler over the last week, from their review of Croatia’s Michelin-Star restaurant Monte to the tavern you can enjoy a beer from while standing foot in both Croatia and Slovenia.
The luxury and lifestyle travel magazine’s Croatian fascination does not stop there. In their most recent Croatian proclamation, Conde Nast shares what they believe to be the 8 best Croatian islands on July 26, 2017.
“When it comes to European islands, most people immediately think of the Mediterranean’s most famous—hello, Santorini and Ibiza. But if you crunch the numbers, the Croatian archipelago is the largest in the Adriatic Sea and the second largest in the Mediterranean, after Greece. Put another way? Within the 718 islands and 389 islets, you’ve got a lot of places to explore—here’s where to start,” writes travel expert Katherine LaGrave.
So, what eight islands made the cut?
Vis, for being underdeveloped compared to its island siblings. Hvar, for the sun and the history. Krk, for being a “cradle” of Croatian culture. Mljet, for being Croatia’s greenest island. Kornati Archipelago, for being a nautical paradise. Brač, for its picturesque towns outside of Zlatni Rat. Korčula, for Pošip, tangled woods, winding coasts, small fishing villages, vineyards, and olive trees. And last but not least? Krapanj, because no cars are allowed.
