Are you ready to escape in Central Dalmatia this summer? For those who are considering a complete getaway from the urban asphalt or to get rid of accumulated annual stress and seeking absolute peace and tranquility, here is my list of the quietest places to stay.
For those who do not tolerate summer noise, bustle and discussions where to place a piece of towel on the crowded beaches, but who want on hard deserved vacations, hear only the sounds of sea waves or crickets songs, here’s how to find ideal proposals for a summer getaway.
It was not so easy to find an ideal place where one escapes for total relaxation for a week or two, since the Creator was so generous scattering a thousand gems in form of a numerous islands, islets and cliffs, everywhere along the Adriatic coast.
Here is my list of some of the best places to escape in Central Dalmatia offering the quietest places to stay:
Lastovo Island A Realm Of Solitude And Tranquility
What makes Lastovo island so special, even if it’s not Hvar or Korcula. If you are looking for rest and refuge from a daily stress of the modern life to restore your peace of mind than this island is for you!
First of all this island is a rare example of untouched natural resources, unique natural habitat, rich in marine and plant diversity. This island is far away from those usual tourist beaten-tracks places.
If you are looking for holidays based on private accommodation, which includes abundant offers of fish and lobster, vegetables grown in private gardens, homemade wine offered by generous local house owners that this island, is the right place for you. This island is designed for couples and small family groups holidays.
Vis Island One Of The Last Havens
Vis Island is the most remote of all Central Dalmatia islands, the last natural paradise in the eastern Mediterranean, a perfect summer gateway.
It’s one of the last havens that from 1945 to 1992 for almost 40 years was a military bunker, an island off-limits, isolated and inaccessible to foreign visitors. Only from 1992 after Croatia was proclaimed as an independent state, Vis finally opened the doors to visitors.
The only benefit of island’s so long isolation, is its untouched and pristine nature what makes this island really ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’.
Suddenly, the island has become a new tourist destination for local and international travelers, seeking for genuineness, unspoiled nature, gourmet delights and above all the tranquility.
Solta Island – Ecological Haven
It is no exaggeration calling Solta island an environmentally friendly island. Even the Roman Emperor Diocletian was in love with this island where he built a summer residence with a fishpond in one of the bays near Necujam village.
It’s rather strange that many guide books provide a poor information about this splendid island. For example the prestigious guidebook like Lonely Planet’s on Croatia, dedicates only 16 lines.
This island is the closest island to mainland, only 35 minutes from Split port. It’s an ideal destination for quiet holidays, without having to give up visiting Split city in one day. It’s the wisest secluded destination and yet not far from the city of Split.
Bisevo – island of caves and Porat Sandy Beach
I’ve chosen this tiny island only 6 sqare kilometars large, located in the southwestern part of the Vis island. The renowned Irish magazine The Irish Times in 2011, ranked Bisevo island sandy beach, Porat among the seven most beautiful beaches in the world.
