The Telegraph’s Top 10 most Beautiful Seaside Towns in Croatia

By Saron Lease, 22nd November 2023

Previously, the Telegraph put forward its choice of the top ten most beautiful Croatian seaside towns – whilst there are some firm favourites on the list, there are also some interesting new kids on the block – do you agree?

The Telegraph’s Top 10 List

1. Rovinj, Istria: Rovinj is a beautiful old town jutting out into the sea with pretty colourful houses and winding, medieval streets – it is around 40km from Pula and one of the must popular towns because it is so pretty and easy to get to from Pula Airport!

2. Mali Losinj on Losinj island: Not the easiest place to get to, but worth the ferry and drive down the island of Cres, via a ferry trip from Zagorje on the Istrian peninsula.

3. Rab town, on Rab island: Another challenge to get to, it’s a pretty town located on a peninsula of land, so surrounded by water. The island has 30 sandy beaches with a lot of tiny, picturesque coves, crystal shallow sea, great for the entire family…

4. Zadar, north Dalmatia: Roman ruins and Venetian architecture, plus the amazing Sea Organ and sunsets. Zadar airport has opened up this area to tourists.

5. Sibenik, central Dalmatia: a hidden gem easily accessed from Zadar or Split airports – check out its UNESCO protected Cathedral, its old town and may have lunch at its Michelin star restaurant? Krka National Park with its waterfalls is very close.

6. Split, central Dalmatia: An amazing city, with the palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian forming the heart of the old town.

7. Hvar town, Hvar island: a vibrant, sought-after destination which lives up to its party image, but with so much more to see and do. Easy to get to by ferry from Split.

8. Korcula town, Korcula island: often called a mini-Dubrovnik, this charming old town’s character will not disappoint. Easy to get to by ferry from Split or Dubrovnik.

9. Dubrovnik, south Dalmatia: the jewel in Croatia’s crown is so beautiful, and with a rich history.

10. Cavtat, south Dalmatia: Elegant Cavtat is lovely, with beaches and restaurants to walk to and a great promenade. Just a water taxi ride from Dubrovnik and a short transfer from the airport.
