Located off the Adriatic Sea, Croatia's Dalmatian Coast is quickly becoming one of Europe's most popular destinations. Not yet on the radar of many people, those in the know have been vacationing to this paradise for years. In addition to amazing restaurants and beaches, tourists also love to explore the coast's many unique islands, most of which are just a short boat ride away. Travelers also relish Primosten, a lovely medieval town that has maintained its Mediterranean charm with old churches and quaint promenades. For those looking for a more relaxed vacation without sacrificing luxury, the Dalmatian Coast is the perfect coastal retreat.
If you're tired of the typical winery visit, Bibich Winery is for you. Ditch the sips of wine and plates of cheese and crackers for a locally sourced, multi-course meal artfully paired with wines from on-site.
With a multitude of islands just a short boat ride away, a water excursion is a must when visiting the coast. Visit Brač Island, the largest in Dalmatia and known for its great olive oil, or see the chic and refined Hvar Island.
Cook authentic Croatian food the traditional way in the Dalmatian Coast hinterlands. Guided by a local, guests will prepare their meal in a konoba using organic ingredients. You can also book a private chef in your residence.
A local eatery favorite that is popular with both tourists and natives alike, Baćulov dvor serves up classic fare in a homey restaurant under canopies of leaves in an authentic Croatian setting.
The two most popular beaches on the Dalmatian coast, Velika Raduča and Mala Raduča draw thousands of beachgoers each year. Both beaches feature pebbled shores with calm, warm waters and are ideal for families.
These two national parks offer different yet equally alluring experiences. Hike through the Dinaric range and swim in the waterfalls in Krka or hop on a boat and explore the 89 islands that make up Kornati.

The Dalmatian Coast is close to two of Croatia's most popular UNESCO World Heritage sites. The city of Trogir features lovely Romanesque churches while the historical complex at Split is home to the ruins of Diocletian's grand palace.
Knowing a few phrases in Croatian can be very helpful when you're out and about sightseeing. Need to say hello? Bok. Please and thank you? Molim and hvala. And most importantly, Gdje se nalazi nužnik? or Where is the restroom?
Although Croatia is a member state of the European Union, they continue to use the Croatian Kuna. Kuna notes are come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000. Avoid large bills as they tend to be difficult to change.
Like many other European locales, tipping is not expected but is still appreciated. Generally, people round the bill up and leave that amount as a tip in places such as cafés or for cab fares. However, in nicer establishments, a 10% tip is fine to leave.
“Dalmatian Coast is one of the most breathtaking sights I’ve ever seen.” says Jeffrey Regele, Hospitality Services Manager with Inspirato. “…a place I’ll return to again and again.”
