Find a berth for your boat in Croatia - though prices are increasing steadily, they started from a low base, so berthing your boat in Croatia is still a good option compared to other Mediterranean destinations. Where else in Europe can you explore over 1000 islands, swim in crystal clear waters and explore villages untouched by time?

Vis Island – Vis used to be a military stronghold and was one of the last areas opened up to visitors after the Second World War so it’s remained undeveloped and unspoilt. A great place to visit.

Boat Shows in Croatia – Growing fast from small beginnings, is this the excuse that you need for an out of season break?

Sibenik - A Sleeping Croatian Beauty – Off the tourist map, as yet, Sibenik is waiting to be discovered. The industrial suburbs hide a city centre with a real heart and the nearby islands are waiting to be explored.

Property News in Croatia – It’s not the snip it once was and you could be stung if you don’t tread carefully but there are still bargains to be had.

Eating Out in Croatia – Don’t expect too much in the way of fancy sauces, but if you like plain fresh grilled fish and meat, and fruit and vegetables that taste like they used too before EU standardisation, Croatia is the place for you.

Traditional Croatian multi harmony singing – Klapa Music is a Croatian speciality not to be missed.

Bosnia - Gems Just a Short Drive From Split – Livno and Kupres are only a two and four hour drive from Split respectively and well worth a visit.

Retail Therapy in Croatia – What to expect from the Croatian Shopping Experience.

Renting a Holiday Apartment in Croatia – New apartments are multiplying like rabbits. Here’s how to get the best deal.

Zagreb – The inland capital is a great place for an off season break.

Croatian Beaches – The hidden, the sandy, the best ones for wind surfing and remember, in Dalmatia, you’re mostly never very far from one.

Brac Island – One of the easiest islands to get too and full of varied treasures.

Trogir – if you want to stay in one place for a while, and experience the widest variety of the best that Croatia has to offer, then Unesco protected Trogir is the perfect base.
Wherever you go and whatever you do, enjoy Croatia while it's still a humble rising star and watch this space for the inside track on what's really happening, as it happens.
