The most beautiful islands in Croatia
With 1244 islands, it is not easy to decide which ones are the most beautiful. But we did our best and present you our favorites here.
island of Rab
Where the Germans vacation
In fact – most Germans vacationing on a Croatian island travel to Rab .
One of the reasons for this is that you can easily travel from Germany by car and then by ferry .
But of course that’s not the only reason why it’s so popular – there are many great beaches and beautiful places to discover on the island.
Do not confuse with the Krka waterfalls
Together with the island of Cres, Krk is the largest island in Croatia.
Here you can even arrive by car without a ferry over a bridge (by the way, you also have to cross it if you drive to Rab).
There are many great coastal towns and bays on Krk , so you are guaranteed not to get bored here.
Island of Brač
The famous Zlatni Rat beach is located here
Because of the special Zlatni Rat beach, the island of Brac has become so famous.
But you can also spend several days on the island. Because Brac is also great for hiking , visiting ruins and strolling through small fishing villages .
Arrival to Croatia
There are many ways to travel from Germany to Croatia. If you want to go on vacation in the northern part of the country, you can easily get there by car or bus and train.
From Munich to Rovinj , for example, it is only a good six hours’ drive by car.
If you don’t want to get behind the wheel, you can easily reach some destinations by train or Flixbus. For example, there is a direct connection from Munich to Pula with the Flixbus .
However, you will be on the road for a few hours by bus, so you should be prepared to sit for a long time.
However, if you want to travel south, such as Dubrovnik or Split , or if you live in northern Germany, we recommend booking a flight. Especially in the summer months there are many good flight connections to Croatia.
