Hvar is with its rich history, archeologically remains and stunning beaches at the Paklini Islands, one of the most beautiful spots in Croatia.
This Old Battleship is known for its cannons, anchors and depths of more than 50 meter making it a great decompression dive.
Croatia is one of the prime scuba diving destinations in Europe. Its many islands and islets, its warm Adriatic Sea and its clear blue waters make it a treat to dive here. Especially the summer month attract scuba divers from all over the world to party, snorkel, dive and relax. Besides it many pretty bays, sandy islands, pebble beach's and secluded coves, Croatia has been popular by sailors for its sailing potential and for its many nudist beaches.
The western side of Istria is littered with shipwrecks in between Umag, Porec and Pula. Also the eastern side near Rabac, in between Istria and Cres, offers interesting spots for wreck enthusiasts. The Kvarner Gulf consists out of the main islands Otok Cres, Otok Krk, Rab and Otok Pag, all beautiful but one slightly more touristic than another. Continuing south along the Adriatic Sea we will reach the island archipelago near Zadar. World renowned islands are the Kornati Islands, but also at Sestrunj, Murter, Pašman, Žirje, Dugi Otok and in front of the town Šibenic, you can find secluded dive sites. Slightly more to the south is Split with the well known scuba islands Brac, Hvar, Šolta and Vis. At the border with Bosnia Herzegovina and Montenegro lies the cruising town of Dubrovnik, without doubt one of Croatia's most historic and picturesque places to visit. Nearby you can find the islands Korcula, Lastovo and Mljet.
The Brijuni Islands near Pula and the Korcula Islands are popular for diving. But the other islands offer plenty of other stunning dives. For wicked caves and caverns you should visit Mezanj Island just southeast of Dugi Otok or Lucice Bay near Brac Islands. Its unusual geology and porous terrain, called karst, provides Croatia with lots of cave dives; many for technical certified cavers. There are plenty of famous wrecks, many from WWII, such as the Baron Gautch near Rovinj and dive sites trashed with amphora's. With this many islands, activities, diving centres, clubs, restaurants and sights; it has the potential of being Europe's best holiday vacation.
