Situated on the beautiful Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, within a couple of hours of Dubrovnik, the community of Viganj is well known by many as being a fantastic surfing destination, but has a great deal more to offer too. Young and old alike will enjoy staying in self catering accommodation in Viganj for a variety of reasons – the picturesque coastline, the beaches, and the weather. Viganj also has the benefit of a rural feeling with peace and tranquility, yet larger towns and cities are within easy reach when required.
Being a surfer’s paradise visitors who enjoy or want to try surfing will be in their element here. Those who prefer adventure on dry land will find the landscape around Viganj is perfect for enjoying hiking and taking in the lovely scenery, and of course being on the coast there are always beaches for sunbathing and swimming from.
When you want to stock the kitchen in your Viganj self catering accommodation you’ll find the town of Orebic, just a few miles away, is the perfect place to do so. This town has shops, restaurants, a port, and more to enjoy, plus you can catch a ferry from here across the strait to the town and island of Korcula for something different. The Franciscan monastery, Our Lady of Angels, on the mountain behind Orebic is one of the area’s top attractions.
As well as the nearby towns, when you stay in a Viganj holiday rental you have plenty more to see a little further away too. To the south, for example, is the large island of Mljet. Mljet has some very beautiful scenery and includes a national park which encompasses three salt water lakes. For cities, Split is a couple of hours to the north and accessible by hydrofoil. This is an ancient city and is often forgotten in preference for Dubrovnik, to the south, and a 2 hour drive from your accommodation in Viganj. Dubrovnik’s old city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and very beautiful, and is well worth the visit.
Viganj, like the rest of this Dalmation Coast area, has a Mediterranean climate. This makes Viganj villa and apartments attractive throughout the year – summers are hot and dry with temperatures in the high 20’s C (low to mid 80’S F). Winters remain mild and though wet, could present the perfect time to visit if you’re interested in hiking.
Getting to self catering accommodation in Viganj will involve a flight to Dubrovnik then a drive of approximately 75 miles (120 km) which should take about 2 hours. This may seem like a long way, but the Dalmatian Coast scenery along the way will keep you far from bored! A good range of airlines offer flights to Dubrovnik, including Croatia Airlines and British Airways. Charter and budget airlines include easyJet, ThompsonFly and Flybe.
