Ledaing portal Business Insider have included 2 Croatian islands on its 17 tiny European islands that you’ve probably never heard of, but should definitely visit list…
Business Insider compiled the guide for its readers who were looking at spectacular destinations that flew ‘well under the tourist radar’.
“You’ve probably heard of Ibiza, Corsica, and Santorini,” the article leads with before going on to list 17 must-visit islands in Europe for anyone who “feels that they have exhausted Europe’s typical destinations.”
Like a large number of ‘best-of’ lists there was room for Croatia to make an appearance, with Business Insider finding 2 breathtaking islands worth a visit. Here are the two Croatian islands which made the list and what they had to say about them:
With just barely 1,100 inhabitants, sleepy Mljet is a place of serenity and tranquility. Almost 90% of the island is covered in forest, and a huge national park offers miles of scenic walking trails. Fun fact: the island’s only hotel is named after Homer’s Odysseus, who is said to have lingered there, bewitched, for seven years.
Vis, the furthest island from the Croatian mainland, is known for fabulous local wine, fresh seafood, and exciting nightlife activities. Its dramatic scenery evokes an aura of mystery that would fit a James Bond hideaway. Kayak through caves, sail the bays and lagoons, and take it all in from the top of Hum mountain.
