Croatia's Best Islands for a Walking Holiday

With one of the craggiest coastlines in the world, Croatia has over 1000 islands. These are our favorite islands to discover on foot.


The longest and most elevated island in central Dalmatia, Brac is a beautiful island famous for its white-pebble beaches and crystal clear waters. The island's extensive network of well-marked hiking trails makes for an excellent walking holiday and caters to both novice and experienced hikers. The trails provide opportunities to explore the island's diverse landscapes, from lush pine forests to dramatic coastal cliffs. Stroll through picturesque towns like Bol and Supetar, where you'll encounter ancient stone architecture, narrow cobblestone streets, and inviting cafes serving delicious local cuisine.



Renowned for its stunning landscapes and historic charm, Hvar offers an idyllic setting for a walking holiday and nature enthusiasts. As you traverse the island's diverse terrain, you'll be greeted by fragrant lavender fields, olive groves, and vineyards that sprawl across the hillsides, all beneath the warm Mediterranean sun. One of the most captivating experiences is the trek to Sveta Nedjelja, a quaint coastal village perched atop dramatic cliffs. Here, you can explore charming streets, sample locally produced wines, and take in breathtaking vistas of the Adriatic Sea.


Korcula, often referred to as "Little Dubrovnik" for its stunning medieval architecture, welcomes hikers with its charming old town and lush landscapes. As you explore the island's well-marked walking trails, you'll be enchanted by the scent of pine forests, the sight of olive groves, and the sound of the Adriatic gently lapping at the coastline. Venture into the island's interior, where vineyards and olive orchards stretch across rolling hills, or explore the rugged coastline, with its hidden coves and panoramic viewpoints.


Often referred to as the "Green Island" for its lush landscapes, Mljet is a nature lover's paradise and the perfect walking holiday destination. As you traverse its well-maintained walking trails, you'll encounter pristine lakes, be enveloped by fragrant pine forests, and revel in the captivating sights and sounds of this untouched Mediterranean gem. The highlight of Mljet is its stunning Mljet National Park, which covers the western third of the island and boasts two crystal-clear saltwater lakes, Veliko and Malo Jezero.
