The Hidden Islands of Croatia

By Honeymoonblogger

Escape the crowds and the package honeymoons with a romantic retreat to one of Croatia’s beautiful and secluded islands. Enjoy warm waters, ancient towns and remote beaches in perfect tranquillity.

The hidden islands of Croatia
The Croatian island of Vis is an ideal honeymoon hideaway if you’re searching for romance and privacy in the heart of the Mediterranean. As the most outer lying of the larger Croatian islands in the Adriatic, Vis is a sanctuary of unspoilt beauty and remote tranquillity. Discover secluded coves of white untouched sands; wander through the lush vegetation of pine trees, carob trees and citrus orchards and snorkel in the emerald waters of Stiniva Cove.

On the north eastern coast is Vis Town, the largest settlement on the island home to Greek and Roman ruins as well as churches and villas dating back to the 16th century. The picturesque fishing village of Komiza is the other main town. Here you can marvel at old fishing boats or catch a passenger ferry to the delightful Blue Grotto on tiny Bisevo Island.

There are many fantastic little places to enjoy some authentic Croatian dishes. Perfect for a romantic meal is Villa Kaliopa, a stylish restaurant set amongst palm trees where you can enjoy the freshly caught fish of the day and Vis wine. Highly recommended to stay is the Hotel San Giorgio, a charming bed and breakfast in the heart of the historic Kut area of Vis. Traditional old stone walls and painted shutters hide the contemporary interiors within. Expect fresh, chic and stylish with a Mediterranean twist.

Korcula Island is an ideal choice for honeymooners craving culture. This delightful island combines a hint of Dubrovnik chic with an abundance of natural beauty. Similarly to Dubrovnik, the medieval old town of Korcula is squeezed onto a peninsula. The narrow stone lanes all lead down to the sea from the pretty St. Mark’s Square with its 15th century cathedral and museum. The museum houses Greek and Roman artefacts from the island and Venetian art, as well as documenting the local shipbuilding and stonemasonry traditions. Korcula’s heritage is celebrated each week with the colourful Moreska Sword Dance, a danced version of a sword battle that tells the story of an abducted princess.

The splendid Venetian architecture creates a beautiful patchwork of red roofs and white stone, hiding within a great selection of restaurants, shops and cafes. A firm favorite with locals is Konoba Marinero, a fantastic little restaurant tucked away on a narrow stone street. Run by two fishermen brothers, the restaurant serves daily fresh fish and homemade specialities.

Situated in the Kvarner region of the northern Adriatic, Losinj is an island in an archipelago of more than 30 small isles. The color of the sea is an astonishing deep green as the island is heavily forested, creating the perfect honeymoon destination for relaxing and rejuvenating. Mali Losinj is the largest town on the island and the most popular due to its stunning setting. The luxurious Cikat Bay is to the north of the town while the cone- like peak of Umpilijak rises over Mali the towns colourful port. The pine forest on Cikat Peninsula provides a cool place to enjoy a romantic stroll or bike ride. Alternatively, explore the vibrant seaside promenade or sunbathe on the sandy beach of Cikat Bay.

Located in Cikat Bay is the lovely Tavern Cigale, serving a selection of fresh fish dishes and local specialities. Romantic couples can enjoy their meal whilst looking out over the bay. Mali Losinj has a number of bars along the promenade; take a stroll after dinner and watch as the port becomes lit up with twinkling lights.
