After his last visit to Dalmatia, George Bernard Shaw wrote: The gods wanted to crown their creation and on the last day they turned tears, stars and the sea breeze into the isles of Komati. Shaw’s words speak to the entire Dalmatian Coast a stunning seascape of unfathomable beauty set against a backdrop of dramatic mountains. With more than 1100 islands, Dalmatia is not only Croatia’s largest archipelago, but also has the cleanest and clearest waters in the Mediterranean.
Ferries are the best way to travel along much of the Dalmatian Coast. Jadrolinija (www.jadrolinija.hr) sails the Rijeka-Split-Dubrovnik route, with stops at many smaller cities and islands along the way. Ferries also run from Split to Ancona, Italy, and from Dubrovnik to Bari, Italy. A basic ticket provides only a place on the deck. Cheap beds sell out fast, so purchase tickets in advance. If you have a basic ticket, run to get a bed. Buses also connect Trogir, Split, and Dubrovnik.
