Croatia is home to over 1000 islands. Really. The majority of the islands are small and uninhabited, only accessible by private boat. The rest–the ones that are actually home to people–are well connected to the mainland (and other islands) by ferry. A few major islands seem to attract the bulk of the visitors, and during the height of the tourist season, these spots are often teeming with people from around the world searching for the best beaches and night clubs.
I’ll be honest, its not really my scene. I much prefer the quiet spots where you can almost forget that Croatia is becoming one of the top tourist destinations in Europe. Enter Cres. Cres is one of the largest islands in Croatia, located just beyond Krk, off the coast of Istria. It is connected by bridge to the islands of Losinj and Mali Losinj. There are a few large resorts on Mali Losinj, but overall the vibe is pretty chill….
