The last week of my vacation I and my friend decided to go road tripping in Croatia. Flying into Dubrovnik, driving north to Pula and flying home from there.
Day 1: Dubrovnik Airport – Mlini Riviera
Landing in DBV. First of all: a very nice place for spotters.
We got our car, found our Air BnB and drove to explore the Mlini Riviera.
A couple of hours at the beach, and later on dinner in the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Followed by a drive up to Mount Srd, to see the sunset.
Day 2: Mlini – Promanja (Makarska Riviera)
Left the Mlini Riviera in the morning and drove to Makarska. Driving through a part of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the way. Luckily no queues at the borders.
Stayed in a small place called Promanja. We found a quite crowded beach, so we bought ourselves some floaties, so we could escape the shore. Floating around and snorkeling the rest of the day. Crystal clear water 😍
Ate dinner and finished right in time for a sunset swim on the beach. Well spent evening.
Day 3: Promanja-Trogir.
Left Promanja in the morning, drove straight to Omis for breakfast, and then further to Trogir, a few minutes north of Split.
Once again, we found a beach and spent the day at the sea with our floaties.
In the evening we took a stroll in a beautiful Trogir, watched yachts and ate dinner in the marina.
Day 4: Trogir-Vis Island-Trogir
Drove to Split to catch the ferry to Vis in the morning. We spent the whole day in Komiza, before we headed back to the mainland. A very nice island, not as touristy as the other places we have visited. Tasted the gelato of my life in Vis (hot tip from me)!
We had our dinner when we got back to Trogir, at a really cute restaurant in the middle of the old town.
Day 5: Trogir-Zadar.
First stop in Krka National Park to see the waterfalls. Actually a little dissappointed, as the park was very crowded. We might have been a little late, but we got to see what we came for. On the way back to the car we also got a refreshing shower of rain. After this little excursion, we drove further to Zadar.
In Zadar we spent the afternoon at the beach. For dinner we went to Nin, a cosy little town nearby. Had a delicious black dough pizza at Mad Duck. Highly recommended.
Day 6: Zadar-Pula.
The longest drive on our roadtrip. Drove through some mountains and the temperature dropped from 35° to 13° during our drive. As we were getting closer to the coast, the temperatures fortunately rose again.
Spent our last day at a small beach in Pula. Floating around in the waves and chilled out on the cliffs. Watched the sunset from the beach, before dinner and a stroll in Pula city centre in the evening. AND a gelato (of course).
