Dubrovnik, Croatia

The majority of the most popular Croatian islands are located between Dubrovnik and Split, along what is commonly known as the Dalmatian Riviera. Not only are these a great starting point for your island hopping holiday, they are most definitely absolute must visit destinations in their own right and both UNESCO protected, so spend a few days in one or the other, or both!. Dubrovnik's famous walled old town is generally considered to be one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world. bursting full of historic sites, hidden alleys and delightful it is sure to leave you in awe.  

 

Split, Croatia

Split's historic old town dates back to the 4th century, built for the Roman emperor Diocletian for which it takes its name. The city is one of Croatia's largest and also acts an excellent central base to do lots of day trips from. The islands closest to Split include Brac and Hvar and Trogir, whilst the islands towards Dubrovnik include Lopud, Sipan and Korcula. All six are easily reached within around an hour except for Korcula which is slightly further. One of the most popular routes would be to start in Dubrovnik, visiting Korcula or Hvar and finish in Split (or vice versa). We have plenty of island hopping opportunities available, just search using the facility at the top of this page! If you can't find what you're looking for call us or send an enquiry and we'll put together an itinerary that suits you! 

 

Supetar, Brac

Tourism on most Croatian islands starts in early May, however with the ever increasing popularity, the season is beginning earlier each year. Most hotels on the islands open around this time and most of the restaurants and popular sights and excursions in turn start for the season in May too. You'll find that the weather in Croatia is very pleasant in May with anything between 20 and 30 degrees. June is a great time to visit when visitor numbers aren't at their peak, but lower hotel rates (especially early June) and hot weather makes for a great equation.

 

Hvar, Croatia

July and August is when the holiday season is in full swing, with pretty much guaranteed fantastic weather, warm seas and a great atmosphere. September is comparable to June and has all the benefits mentioned above, although early September's hotel rates are still at their peak. Mid to end of September offers great prices and the warm weather we all crave. October is when the tourist season on Croatia's coast typically finishes, but again, as the season is getting longer more hotels and restaurants are staying open for longer. Weather in October is typically in the low to mid 20's, whilst bargains can be had at the hotels.

 

The increased popularity of Croatia's islands over the last few years, has meant great improvements for island hopping. More routes, faster connections and easier purchasing methods have benefitted everyone. As mentioned above, you can now access most of the islands between Dubrovnik and Split in around an hour.

Some routes such as to Hvar Town and Bol are connected by catamaran (pictured) and some are accessible by ferry or car ferry. Catamarans are seated and thus have limited availability but are also particularly fast, whilst ferries are quite slow, but some can carry cars and also have open decks, which means you can soak up the Adriatic sun watching the beautiful scenary pass you by. Most of our Island Hopping Holidays have the option to include transfers including the catamaran/ ferry tickets, as well some hotels offering the option for a speed boat transfer to and from the airports, meaning a holiday with us is stress-free!
