Secret Dalmatia provide tailor made tours and trips to show you the real Croatia - gastronomy, natural heritage, sailing the Adriatic, tasting Croatia's diverse and good quality wines are just some of the treats. They've also picked the type of hotel that will appeal to those wanting something just that little bit special. We've written about them plenty of times on the blog because they always seem to have something new and special to offer and maintain such a high quality of service, as well as providing a great all round travel experience.

Croatia Birding is one of the the first websites in Croatia to address its enormous potential for bird watching, It's been set up by Val Tours, a longstanding travel agency in Biograd and one of the most helpful we've come across. Whilst we're only novice bird watchers, we had one of our best day's out with Val Tours' resident bird watching expert in 2009. Croatia also has a lot to offer experienced bird watchers and this site will help them find it.

Croatia Holiday and Home has a great web site, with plenty of detailed information, to help you plan an independent villa holiday in Croatia or buy a Croatian Property.

The Croatian Language School is based in West London but organises regular immersion courses in Croatia. The website has a monthly newsletter on all things Croatian.

Hi Jane
We are about to visit Croatia in september of this year (08) I read on the internet quite a few months ago that there was a wonderful Island around Korcula or around the Peljesae Peninsula, which is inhabited by Monks, no vehicles allowed, and you get on a small boat for the short trip to this island, well can I find this island now, not a chance, have you heard of it? if so could you point me in the right direction please.

Hi Chris

I was cheekily going to use your comment as a plug for our Croatia Cruising Companion - page 211 - and, but...(!) the island is Badija, just east of Korčula. Glad you asked though - we sailed to the island researching the Cruising Companion as there's a good anchorage right by the Abbey. Unfortunately, and unusually, we didn't go ashore so we didn't tap into the whole history. There's a good website with the history and some stirring music - it looks like a good subject for a posting so watch this space. If you do go there and have the time and inclination to send a brief report in I'd be happy to post it. In the meantime I'll make a note to include some more about it in the 2nd edition.

Have a great holiday!

Hi Jane.
Will let you know all about our visit, bit more of a non holiday question now for most people, but are there any local fruit and veg markets on the Peljesae Peninsula, I love trawling through these markets when we are away as we go self catering so it is great to get in there with the locals, it gives you an opertunity to get closer to the local produce, I know it is not sea, sand and sights, but we have to eat, I love to cook so why not combine both for a great holiday, sorry it is not a very exciting question, but never the less quite important, it is very difficult to find out this type of information unless you have an insider as they say because it is not a "holiday" thing you end up finding the holiday trinkit markets, we love to eat out, don't get me wrong, but we also like to eat in on the balconey as well, again thanks for your time and will post a report for you when I return, we have just booked a 2 day stay at a hotel in Hvar as well so we will be on a ferry from the penisular to the mainland polce I think it is called then up the coast and back on a ferry on to Hvar, will also let you know how that went if you like.

Sorry Chris

I'm not an expert on markets on Peljesac but I'd be very surprised if you couldn't find one relatively easily. Looking forward to hearing about your holidays!
