All about the Delights of the Dalmatian Coast Walk.

Croatia’s rich cultural heritage is matched only by its amazing natural beauty; this stunning coastline of sandy beaches, unspoilt islands, tourist-free villages and barely-visited historic sites is perfect for exploring on foot.
Travelling with our local guide, in an air-conditioned vehicle, we follow easy coastal paths to rocky coves and forest paths leading to tiers of shimmering waterfalls. We’ll also visit the many historically significant sites that have influenced modern-day Croatia. There’s the UNESCO-listed old town of Dubrovnik, where well-preserved ramparts surround a honeycomb of Renaissance churches, secret courtyards and sumptuous merchants’ palaces. Founded by the Romans, Split’s famous UNESCO Diocletian’s Palace was once the Emperor’s retirement home. Today its warren of narrow alleys houses the town’s cathedral, while its cavernous cellars are used as art galleries.
Finally it’s on to Trogir, where the first Greek settlers landed, listed by UNESCO for its wealth of classical buildings such as St Lovro’s church and the Venetian loggia.
We’re extremely pleased with our choice of hotels too. In Dubrovnik, we stay in a 4 star hotel on the Lapad peninsula with its spectacular cliffside position offering superb views. On Brac, our 3 star hotel in Bol, a pretty honey-coloured stone mansion, lies on the harbour front, with all rooms affording sea views. Our 3 star hotel in Trogir is in the old town, run by the Buble family, whose history in the town can be traced over eight centuries. Some evening meals and some lunches are taken in local restaurants where we’ll savour the excellent regional cuisine. Air-conditioned rooms are guaranteed throughout.

First time in Croatia and an excellent introduction to the country which is beautiful. Our guide Ivan was brilliant as was our driver Marin. Loved the variety of mini bus and ferry/boat travel. The walking was tame but enjoyable. Wonderful coastline and towns. Lots of food, perhaps too much although all the places we ate were great. A 3 course meal at lunchtime often not until 3pm and then a further 3 course meal in the evening was a bit overwhelming. Picnic lunches were preferable. The Dubrovnik Palace Hotel is a hard act to follow, just magnificent. Our room at Hotel Kastile was small, tired and noisy and although we had a spacious room at Hotel Pasike the breakfast was very poor, in fact practical non existent and not up to Headwater standard. A diverse group who got on well and this was a most enjoyable holiday
