If you like a bit of culture with your holiday, then Supetar may be the ideal spot to visit. Brač Island’s central town has plenty to enjoy - explore the 18th-century church during the day, and dine by the yachts by night. There’s something for everyone at Makarska, the cosmopolitan city with seaside cafes and shops, and sun-seekers should head straight to the long stretch of beach at scenic Tucepi.

Whether you’re after a fun-filled holiday or a relaxing getaway, the Dalmatian Coast has plenty to please throughout its cosmopolitan cities and postcard-perfect islands. Take some time out on a Croatian beach, be amazed at the stunning Krka National Park, or join in the nightlife at one of the coast’s party hot spots.

There’s natural beauty everywhere you look along the Dalmatian Coast. A visit to the Krka National Park should be right at the top of your to-do list - this stunning natural site is one of Croatia’s most popular attractions, and you can get right up close and personal with the waterfalls and brilliant blue lakes. For active types, one of the best things to do on the Dalmatian Coast is to go hiking up Mount Biokovo - there are several trails to suit everyone from experts to beginners. And of course, this holiday spot has no shortage of beaches, if you’d rather kick back and relax.

There’s much more to the Dalmatian Coast than its beaches. No holiday here would be complete without a trip to the stunning Old City of Dubrovnik, the incredible UNESCO site that’s been on the coast for centuries - lose yourself amongst the cobbled streets, climb the ancient walls and see the city from above, or relax in a quaint cafe and enjoy a Croatian bite to eat. Diocletian’s Palace is one of the best places to visit on the Dalmatian Coast for history buffs. The impressive Roman ruins can be found right at the heart of the city, and have become Split’s most famous attraction, thanks it to being used as a location in the popular TV series, Game of Thrones.

After a long day of sightseeing and sunbathing, there are plenty of places to go on the Dalmatian Coast to let your hair down of a night. Croatia’s party scene is spread all along the coast - the cities of Dubrovnik and Split are buzzing with life when the sun goes down, with bars right on the beachfront. If you fancy a change of scene, why not catch a short ferry ride? The island of Hvar is host to some great nightlife, particularly in summer, when everything from lively bars to open-air clubs are open for your entertainment.

Weather and climate

Temperature: 5-30 (°C)
Best time to visit: With mild winters and hot summers, the Dalmatian Coast is an ideal destination any time of year 

Summers in the Dalmatian Coast are dry and hot, with sizzling highs of 30 and up to 12 hours of sunshine a day. Spring is ideal for slightly milder sunbathing weather - May enjoys top temperatures of 20 - and it’s still warm enough in autumn to hit the beach. You can expect cool highs of 8 in November, but winter is a great time to explore the resort’s hot spots without the crowds. 


Getting around

Bus: Thanks to them being fast and frequent, public buses are a popular way to get around the coastline, from the city hot spots to the more remote villages.

Ferry: The best way to explore the islands that surround the Dalmatian Coast is by ferry - Jadrolinija is perhaps the most well-known company in Croatia, and you can hop on board at any of the main ports. 

Trains: There aren’t many train lines in Croatia due to the rocky landscape, but it’s a great way of getting between the major cities. Trains tend to be a little cheaper than buses, too.


Events

Ultra Europe

Party lovers on holiday in the Dalmatian Coast won’t want to miss Ultra Europe. Split’s lively music festival takes place in July, and sees world-famous DJs and artists perform to thousands of fans at this unforgettable event. 

Days of Diocletian 

History buffs will love the Days of Diocletian. This exciting event is usually held in August, and sees the city of Split bring its ancient Roman history to life. Expect Emperors riding through the streets in chariots, theatre shows and sword fights in the square - there’s even a grand feast held in the ruins.

Dubrovnik summer festival

Dubrovnik’s summer festival is the perfect way to get a taste of Croatian culture. Since 1956, this annual celebration of the arts has attracted hundreds of tourists and locals alike, with theatrical shows, classical music concerts, and ballet performances all across the city.
