The capital of Brac Island is sleepy Supetar but most of the action is around Bol, known for its windsurfing and unusual Zlatni Rat beach nearby. Read more.

Dugi Otok Island

Less mountainous than the preceding entries, Dugi (Long) island is also much rougher and less touristed. Read more.

Vis Island
Vis Harbour
Remote and untamed, Vis is where you go to escape the crowds. Vis town is a pretty port, plus there's Komiza, a perfect stepping stone to the Blue Grotto at Bisevo. Read more about Vis Island.

Pag Island
Pag Town
Dry, flat Pag is easily accessible from Zadar and known for its pungent cheese. Amid the stark landscape is unusual Pag town where ladies in black work on their intricate lacework. Novalja has the wildest nightlife on the Adriatic. Read more about Pag Island.

Cres & Losinj Islands
Cikat beach, Mali Losinj
The two islands of Cres and Losinj are separated by a narrow canal and very different atmospheres. Losinj Island is much more developed, especially around the fishing ports of Mali Losinj and Veli Losinj while Cres Island remains much more rugged. Read more about Cres and Losinj.

Rab Island
Rab town
Small but beautifully lush Rab Island is known for its delightful Rab Town graced with four bell towers and the wonderful beaches of Lopar. Read more.

Krk Island
Krk town
Hilly and dry, Krk Island is busy most of the year. Lying close to the mainland, it's a favourite spot for summer residences and visitors who come for sandy Baska beach or scenic Krk Town. Read more.
