My top 9 Croatia highlights

Updated: Sep 13, 2019

It’s a question that I’ve had a lot, but there are so many incredible moments and experiences that I had whilst in Croatia that it’s quite difficult to pinpoint what I liked best. I guess this happens a lot with travelling, there’s a number of heightened experiences bunched together into a short timeframe that are so unlike “real life”, and that’s what makes travel addictive!

I’ve tried my best to dwindle the trip down to my top 9 highlights, and each one of them brings back epic vivid memories that I’ll probably never forget! Here’s the deal, if any of these highlights resonate with you, you HAVE to do yourself a favour and book a flight to these incredible islands!! You will not regret it!

The sunrises

We all know that anywhere you go in the world, you can watch the sun rise. But there is something about setting sail at the crack of dawn and sailing into the sunrise that makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world - it’s a whole new perspective.

Every morning, I’d wake up to the gentle hum of the engine and pull myself out of my cabin and up onto the deck. Our skipper would already have the kettle boiled and the sky would begin its beautiful display of colour. It felt like I was the only person in the world....

The food

I think I underestimated just how much could be achieved in the tiny ‘kitchen’ on our boat. Our skipper was not only an amazing sailor with more knowledge of the sea and our planet than anyone I’ve met, but he also turned out to be a pretty awesome chef! The meals he whipped up were fresh and delicious and everyday was something different. When I woke up to the smell of freshly baked banana bread, I came to the conclusion that he’s the perfect man! My favourite thing was to jump into the water and work up an appetite splashing around on the giant unicorn before tucking into the most tasty food! Here’s a few of my faves:
