After 2 nights in Krk you head off to the island of Rab which comprises a variety of beaches spanning 22 km.
In the western part of the island you will find cliff-lined beaches, in the southern part, gravel shores, and in the northern part of the island magnificent sandy beaches, perfect for family holidays in Croatia.
The rugged coastline provides scenic coves for an extraordinary swimming experience.
The town is also known for its unmistakable clusters of terracotta roofs, soaring church towers and wealth of historical sites with numerous Gothic and Renaissance palaces, churches and characteristic four belfries.
Your last stop is the island of Zadar, full of cultural and historical heritage as one of the oldest settlements in Croatia.
In Zadar you can wander the streets of marble, enjoy cheaper prices than in Dubrovnik, and sail to quieter beaches on remote islands.
Zadar is also a popular party destination with endless festivals to arrange your trip around if summer party nights are what you’re after.
Eight days of dreamy summer living could not be spent better than sailing across the Adriatic to glorious islands of sunshine, sandy shores and unending adventures.
