In July 2014, Meghan Markle spent a few beautiful days on the Croatian coast. Here is what she wrote.

A tour of Croatian Adriatic coast is worth every kuna, starting from medieval Dubrovnik, whose architecture and history will take your breath away, to Korčula, Vis and Hvar. You will enjoy what the Dalmatian coast has to offer: spectacular wines, fresh seafood, beautiful nature and picturesque rocks, a little bit of nightlife and, of course, the sea. – This is how then Hollywood actress and now British royal Meghan Markle wrote about her visit to Croatia, reports on May 22, 2018.

In addition to Stradun and the town walls, it seems that Meghan was particularly impressed with the food in Dubrovnik. “Remember, Italy is Croatia’s neighbour, and you do feel that in the food. If you are looking for something more low key (and very authentic) for dinner, order the squid ink risotto and wash it down with a glass of Plavac Mali (a full-bodied Croatian red wine),” wrote Meghan.

After Dubrovnik, she visited Korčula, which she called a “one-night destination” due to the size of the island. In addition to restaurants, she also recommended visiting the Bishop’s Palace from the 18th century. She also mentioned the walking tour of the town of Korčula, which she described as full of stone houses and surrounded by medieval walls. She added that Marco Polo was apparently born nearby.

If you want to go on a path less-traveled and visit a little bit less developed Adriatic paradise, go to the island of Vis. The island was a military zone before 1992, so it was not opened for tourists, wrote Meghan. “Be prepared to pull your luggage on stone streets. Nothing on this island is glamorous, which I like”, she wrote. “If you are ambitious, head with a bicycle to the hilly roads towards the Stončica Beach. I was exhausted and thrilled when I ordered a cold beer and sardines in the tavern and then jumped into the beautiful sea. If you have rented a car, you are lucky. If you came by bike, try to charm the taxi driver to let you put the bike in the trunk, as I managed to do when returning to the hotel,” wrote Markle.

At the end of her tour, she visited Hvar. “Talk about a change of pace when you get to Hvar, where yachts line the harbour, and ladies who wear high heels with their bikinis frolic about. And perhaps that is the beauty of Hvar, you can have it all, as I did,” wrote Meghan. She spent her days there on a wine tour, sunbathing on popular beaches, having dinner at restaurants and partying in famous beach clubs.

Interestingly, Prince Harry visited Hvar in 2011, and the video of him dancing in a nightclub became a viral hit.
