There’s still time to visit Croatia in 2017...

7th September 2017

The change in temperature may be noticeable in the UK following the arrival of September, but that doesn’t mean that warmer climates are too far away. A short journey across the Mediterranean towards the Balkan nations and the Adriatic Sea will reward you with temperatures in the mid to high 20’s. It is also where the Star Flyer will operate the remainder of the 2017 Mediterranean sailings, with opportunities to explore Venice and a number of delights in Croatia. So, without further ado, we take a look at each of the Croatian delights you can experience on board the Star Flyer this autumn.

Mali Losinj

Mali Losinj

While visitors have flocked to Dubrovnik and Split in recent years, one destination, in particular, has been overlooked. The island of Losinj is home to an array of baroque fishing villages, charming locals and uncrowded beaches that will leave you feeling totally charmed. The island’s main city of Mali Losinj is home to a beautiful natural harbour which is surrounded by green hills in the distance. A beautiful place to wander around or sit back with a coffee and watch the world go by.

Hvar

Hvar

The island of Hvar is located off the southern coastline of Croatia and offers a beautiful beach resort encapsulated within 13th-century walls. The town square in Hvar is the largest in Croatia – stretching a total of 4,500 square metres, while a walk to the top of the neighbouring hill will take you to a historic fortress. Elsewhere, you can admire St Stephen’s Cathedral – a beautiful structure which was built during the 16th and 17th centuries. There is plenty to see in terms of architecture within Hvar and your intrigue can lead you on an insightful journey.

Korcula

Korcula

Korcula, which is located close to the city of Dubrovnik, offers an array of small villages and is the most populous island of the Adriatic. It is home to an array of fascinating architecture from the medieval period, with squares, churches, palaces and much more to be explored. The innermost reaches of the island present a wealth of woodlands and vineyards, while the coast offers a multitude of shingle and sandy beaches. Korcula is also believed by many to have been the birthplace of the famous explorer, Marco Polo.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik

Every year, tourists flock to Dubrovnik in their droves and it really is easy to see why. This magnificent city has become one of the most iconic places of the Mediterranean, with an impressive walled city that looks over the surrounding sea. One of the best ways to fully appreciate everything this city has to offer is to wander the top of the city walls, while the streets below hold a number of surprises including Sponza Palace, the Bell Tower, the Franciscan Monastery and much more. If you navigate the narrow paths far enough, you will discover a hole in the wall which leads to a fantastic bar – a perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.


There is still time to enjoy Croatia and everything she has to offer before the end season ends in October 2017. The Star Flyer will operate three seven-night sailings out of Venice (16th September, 23rd September and 30th September) before rounding off the eastern Mediterranean season with an epic 10-night itinerary, departing 7th October.
