Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Croatia your home away from home

Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

Dalmatia is the eastern Croatian region of the Adriatic Sea, which at only 50km across at its widest part has a disproportionate amount of coast. Dalmatian Coast holiday rentals are all within a short distance of the coves, secluded beaches, islands and inlets of the coast. Because of the rugged coast and numerous islands of all sizes and topographies, sailing is a large business in this part of Croatia. The coast is known for its warm sea, consistent sailing winds, and beautiful wooded islands.

Places to holiday on the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

The cities of Zadar, Sibenik, Split and Dubrovnik are stunning, timeless medieval cities, with fishing boats bobbing in their marinas or out on the blue waters of the Adriatic.

The national parks of Paklenica Karst River, Korati Archipelago, and the Mljet Island within an island are all fabulous tourist attractions, showing the remarkable natural landscape and allowing it to be explored without damage.

Dubrovnik, the Adriatic’s ‘Crown Jewel’ is a magnificent ancient walled coastal town, with wide marble boulevards, 15th century fountains, 12th century monasteries and Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque structures.

Croatia’s second largest city, Split, dates back to Roman times, and the walls and impressive imperial quarters remain. This part of town and the surrounding maze of homes, alleys and churches are a UNESCO World Heritages site, and it is little wonder why.

Things to do on the Dalmatian Coast

The Dalmatian coast holiday rentals do not merely let you enjoy the staggering ancient stone walled towns and villages clinging to the rocks above the shimmering blue sea, or relax and soak up the sun in her coves and beaches, but allows you to enjoy the timeless culture and relaxed lifestyle of this part of Croatia.

There are many wrecks from traders and marine battles to investigate off the shores by scuba diving. A particular highlight is the downed B-17 bomber off the island of Komiza. The sea is also used for sailing and boating, which attracts novices and professionals to drift on the constant breezes finding island paradises or relaxing in the sun.

The Roman villas in Split are well worth a visit for any enthusiast, but for genuine culture, the Summer Festival in Split is incredible. Performing arts, food and music fill the theatres, squares, galleries and streets of the town, and the atmosphere is remarkable.

For those who like road trips, it's worthwhile to travel up the Croatian Coast, through Kvarner and Istria. You could continue through Slovenia and end up in Trieste in Italy within a couple of days leisurely driving.

Weather on the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

Summer on the Dalmatian Coast is warm and sunny, with average temperatures in July and August around 30°C, so it is a perfect time to take a holiday rental on the Dalmatian Coast and hire a boat. The winters however can be cold and harsh, with temperatures dropping to around 4°C, but if you take a jacket, the winter brings out the character and beauty of the Dalmatian Coast in a new way.

The Croatian people are very friendly and it is one of the safest holiday places we have ever been. We will be back next year.

You do need to be prepared for a lot of steps in Dubrovnik but the view from the apartment terrace makes it worthwhile.
