The Dalmatian Islands, in Croatia, a secret escapade for the back season

To take advantage of the back season in the sun, the Dalmatian Islands, in Croatia, are a secret destination where you can relax and let go.

You already have the urge to go back on a trip after the holidays? An exotic, authentic and yet very close destination, Croatia is bordered with more than one thousand sunny paradise islands, a good part of the year. On the Adriatic Sea, most of them are still quite secret and can only be reached by boat. In Dalmatia, these confetti flowers float on the water.

Unless you choose a deserted island for a picnic.
