The breathtaking Dalmatian Coast, characterised by limestone cliffs plunging into the Adriatic Sea, runs for over 200 miles along the western edge of Croatia. The region includes the historic cities of Split and Dubrovnik and hundreds of offshore islands, each with its own character. The Dalmatian Coast typically experiences 12 or 13 hours of sunshine a day during the summer months, with average temperatures between 24°C and 26°C, and is much sought after as a destination for luxury camping holidays.

Main Attractions

The history of the Dalmatian Coast stretches back to the Old Stone Age, so there is no shortage of historical attractions. The cities of Split and Dubrovnik – both UNESCO World Heritage Sites – are probably the most famous destinations on the Dalmatian Coast, and rightly so, but the offshore islands of Brac, Hvar and Vis are also worth a visit. Back on the mainland, the Makarska Riviera, a stunningly beautiful stretch of coastline overlooked by the Biokovo Mountain, is another popular tourist destination. 

Food and Culture

Cultural attractions on the Dalmatian Coast include various museums and galleries offering exhibitions of historical and contemporary art. The Dalmatian Coast also plays host to numerous cultural festivals during the summer months, not least the Dubrovnik Summer Festival. Dalmatian cuisine, which is essentially Mediterranean in character, includes an abundance of fresh seafood, including crab, lobster and octopus. Dalmatian brunch, or “Marenda”, is widely eaten in coastal towns and consists of bakery products, regional cheeses, smoked ham, fruits and vegetables.
