Planning a trip to Croatia and need a few tips on what to do? If so, then there are two things you MUST do in this beautiful city. First and foremost, you’ll want to block off a day for taking a boat tour of the islands around Split. Secondly, plan a day for seeing the historical monuments in Split.
Don’t miss your chance to explore at least one of Croatia’s over one thousand islands! Croatia is well known for its breathtaking archipelago of islands, and those off the coast of Split are no exception.
You will find many tour operators offering daylong boat trips to some of the most beautiful islands in all of coastal Europe. Though some tour groups were offering package deals up to as many as 6 different islands, we opted for the 3-island tour. This was hands down the absolute highlight of our trip; and if we could go back and do it all again, we’d visit as many islands as we could. From the Blue Lagoon’s turquoise crystal-clear waters to the beautiful architecture dotted along Šolta, these are our 3 favorite islands to visit near Split, Croatia that you cannot miss!
3) Okrug Gorji- Čiovo Island
2) Maslinica- Šolta Island
1) Blue Lagoon- Drvenik and Krknjasi islands
Aside from the vibrant nightlife and romantic seaside promenades, I was amazed by the historical richness here.
